For connoisseurs of designer sunglasses, Garrett Leight’s surname should ring familiar: his parents, Larry and Cindy, are the founders of the luxury eyewear line Oliver Peoples. In 2010, Leight launched his own Garrett Leight California Optical and proved that a talent for creating smart sunglasses and optical frames runs in his family. Browse through his label’s lookbook to find a versatile range of hand-finished styles, including the rounded-square Rialto shades in classic tortoiseshell, clear Hampton wayfarers, and polarized Speedway aviators (inspired by Hunter S. Thompson, notes the designer). A fan of understatement, Leight keeps his glasses logo-free so as not to draw attention away from the wearer. These are glasses you’ll love to wear season after season.
Our gift to you is a complete packing list for your next greatly earned escape.
Quality shades in every silhouette, from aviators to wayfarers and more.
Retro-inspired shades with a Hollywood following.
Inspired by a collection of vintage sunglasses, the brothers Leight created their first collection of Oliver Peoples glasses over 25 years ago. The glasses have been popular ever since and it’s easy to see why — sleek takes on aviators, tortoiseshell frames, polarized lenses, and more. All that is on full display here, just in time for a summer full on sun-soaked activities.
