Garrett Leight California Optical San Miguel Aviator Sunglasses


California blesses its citizens with many gifts.

Sure, the gorgeous microclimates and soft coastlines are great, but for many the biggest draw of living and working here is that this state thrives on reinvention.

There’s always been a pretty dramatic (cinematic?) before and after quality to living and creating in California. Even if you’ve been here your whole life the opportunities to weave and explore and expand and start over are nearly endless.

I’m thinking in particular about multidisciplinary artists like singer and poet Jim Morrison, who went from teen icon to godfather of goth and art rock in the span of just three years, and venerable Pop Art legends John “I Will Not Make Boring Art” Baldessari and Ed Moses.

Stylistically, all three of them can be linked by their love of pushing creative boundaries — and rocking super hip, aviator-inspired frames in new and inventive ways. When these dudes wore technically exquisite (those angles!) aviator frames you didn’t think “fighter pilot”, you thought “poetic bohemian badass.”
