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 South Africa

Niklas, a friend of mine, spent the winter holidays in South Africa. There he let this cute kid try his Garrett Leight Hampton sunglasses. How cool is this little guy?

Garrett Leight in Paris

In Paris I met Garrett Leight and Elena Doukas to see the Garrett Leight glasses. It was great to finally meet them since we at Bonocle like the frames so much! We had a great time and talked most of the time so I kinda forgot to take pictures.

What I can tell you is that great things are about to come! I am really really excited! Garrett is doing a great job, there are few models but all of them are truly well executed!
