Garrett Leight California Optical





       The laid back style known as “American Intellectual” brought to the forefront of eyewear design by Larry Leight, co-founder of Oliver People’s, has waned since Oliver People’s was bought out by eyewear giant Luxottica.  Enter Garrett Leight, son of Larry.  Garrett Leight California Optical” (GLCO) is a refreshing collection of refined, light and beautifully contoured optical frames and sunglasses with inspiration drawn from Garrett’s love of his home state, California. Colour pathways such as champagne, honey blonde or walnut tortoiseshell offer softer alternatives to the bolder colour pathways more popular in recent times.The frames are all named after streets in Venice Beach where GLCO are situated.
