Garret Leight, the son of Oliver People's Larry and Cindy Leight, founded his eponymous line of sunglasses, Garrett Leight California Optical (GLCO), in his hometown of Venice Beach in 2010. Continuing his parents' time-honored commitment to craftsmanship, all GLCO frames are sourced from premium materials—their plastics, for example, are a custom-made cellulose acetate handmade at the renowned Mazzuchelli factory in Italy or else sourced from vintage Japanese acetate.
The brand just released the "Venezia," a beautiful new frame from their Spring/Summer 2013 collection with a retro clip-on option (now available in their new Los Angeles flagship).
