All Things Californian with Garrett Leight in London

Born in Venice Beach, Los Angeles in 2010, Garrett Leight eyewear draws inspiration from the effortlessly cool and fiercely creative Californian culture. Each style is named after a local place –Wavecrest Avenue, Linnie Canal, The Kinney – and every frame is stamped with the zip code VC/CA 90291 to pay homage to its roots. 

 

 

The brand’s founder has a similarly rich heritage.  Garrett Leight is the son of eyewear royalty Larry Leight – the legend behind Oliver Peoples glassesGarrett’s eponymous brand draws on his father’s legacy, blending timeless aesthetics with a dedication to impeccable craftsmanship – but always with a modern twist. It’s no wonder Garrett Leight has become the go-to glasses brand for Hollywood’s A-list elite, with Seth Rogan, Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth and basketball superstar Chris Paul counting themselves among its patrons.
