The sun may be waving so long as winter clouds begin to roll over for the year, but it’s not going to stop us popping some of these shades on even if it’s just to protect our eyes from falling leaves. Garrett Leight California Optical, or GLCO, is Californian based eyewear designer with classic aesthetics and quality craftsmanship.
Garrett Leight, a 4th generation Californian and optics enthusiast, opened his first store in Venice Beach, 2009, celebrating all things unique, contemporary and vintage - curated from all over the world - in footwear, apparel, music, books and eyewear.
GLCO launched in 2010 by a small group of young, zealous purveyors of eyewear dedicated to classic and timeless design in both style and quality. A brand like no other – GLCO respects the evolution of quality frames, highly values service and design, and is constantly inspired by their surroundings.
"Beauty, youth, art, fashion, photography, music, architecture and design in general inspire us as individuals and reflect our brand."
GLCO shades are available in the Vanishing Elephant Melbourne QV store from May 2012.
Check them out quick, before those autumn leaves start tumbling down with force!
