Under the Water with Garrett Leight Glasses

Under the Water with Carl WaldekranzCarl under the water in his new frames from Garrett Leight.

I love the concept of the Garrett Leight collections: contemporary design of retro shapes with a modern finish. Instead of creating way to many models they offer a handful of options but all with extremely good comfort, fit and best of all: different color and size options. The Garrett Leight Hampton is available in 3 different sizes and 6 colours. Carl already has the frame in two of the colours: Leopard Tortoise and Sage (the one he is wearing in the photos).

IN THE SAHARA DESERT, TUNISIA

SAHARA DESERT

I had one of the coolest moments in my life visiting the Sahara desert in Tunisia. Probably the most amazing place on earth, mind blowing.

I spent an afternoon in the desert, riding camels and playing around in the sand. I don’t even know how to explain the feeling. It’s a very incredible feeling watching the infinitive view of desert. Sand, sand and more sand. Very calming and beautiful.

Visiting Star Wars Land, Tunisia

During my trip to Tunisia I took 2 days for going on a road trip. One of the highlights from the trip was definitely visiting Star Wars land, I had no clue Star Wars was filmed in the desert of Tunisia(!). So cool!

I spent the day together with my latest addition of sunglasses: these awesome shades from Hyde’s. I don’t think they’ve reached the stores yet, but watch out for updates because their latest collection is really awesome.

Pro tip: put prescription lenses in your sunglasses. It’s the best thing to do before a vacation. For a road trip spending the days sleeping in a bus, visiting the desert and very dry environments it’s simply impossible wearing contacts without getting your eyes extremely dry. I’m therefore very happy I had the time to put prescription lenses to these sunnies, and best thing: they look exactly like the original lenses.

Watch out: Sunny updates coming up!
