Celebrating five years of laid back California cool designs, Garrett Leight releases his Spring Summer 2016 collection.
This special anniversary season pushes the boundaries in both innovation and design, a culmination of not only everything that came before, but also looks beyond.
Fans of the brand will notice new takes on familiar designs. Such as the Wilson and the Brooks eyeglasses which now sport foldable metal clip-on lenses, rightfully joining Hampton, Kinney, and Milwood. There is also a host of completely new sunglasses and optical frames introduced into the line-up.
Some of our favorites include, the Cordova with leather wrapped rims, and the Paloma which features inverse Windsor rims. As well as the Warren, clean, well-proportioned, and universally flattering. The lens highlight has to be the matte mirrors on the new Grayson.
This is definitely the most technical collection to date: leather wrapped metal, detailed metal filigree, multi-tone acetates, inverted Windsor rims, layered and matte mirror lenses, to name a few of the highlights. Of course all this while maintaining the signature classic aesthetic we loved 5 years ago, and we have only grown more fond of today. Check out all the latest additions below.
The Cordova is a material exploration featuring round rims wrapped in leather and a sculptural polished metal bridge with architectural styling. It is offered here in navy leather, silver metal, and indigo tortoise temple tips, paired with “Denim Layered Mirror” lenses.

Quintessential Garrett Leight. A clean unisex frame with classic proportions. It features thick acetate and metal plaques lending a vintage vibe, balanced with colorways that are decidedly contemporary. Additionally its riveted 5-barrell hinges offer strength and durability. The Warren is offered as both as sunglass and optical frame.
The only thing missing from the ageless Wilson was a way to bridge the gap between optical and sun. The elegant pairing of antique gold with G15 green lenses accentuates each of the tortoise options with style.
This 5-year anniversary edition of the Brooks adds another layer of versatility with the addition of Garrett Leight’s signature metal foldable sunglass clip with silver mirror lenses. Additionally “5 Years Hommies” is engraved on the inner temple tip to commemorate the special edition.
