Signing Off for the Year

Signing Off for the Year

Words: Denise Shon

New Retail Shops and Team

We opened two new retail locations in New York — Mulberry and Williamsburg. Our Mulberry shop sits in the heart of Nolita and features our largest dedicated Mr. Leight space.

At our Williamsburg spot, you’ll find a custom mural from artist, Tofer Chin, and a dedicated wall with a running rotation of our collabs. 

We also expanded the GLCO family, welcoming new retail managers Maya at Grand, Jay at Mulberry, and Hoang at La Brea. Kobi, our summer intern in LA, made the move to NYC and is now a sales associate at Mulberry. Stop by if you’re in the neighborhood and say hey to our crew! 

Collaborations and parties in NYC, Austin, Paris, and LA 

Each year, we check off more from our Dream Collab list and this year was a real banger of dream partnerships and parties. Here’s a look at the brands we’ve worked with and the joint parties we threw. 

GLCO x Aquatic Leisure Center party at our new Williamsburg store

GLCO x Footjoy on a line of golf gear and frames with our launch party at Penmar Social Club

 

GLCO x Daniel Shepard on a line of summer goods

 

GLCO x Will Bryant consisted of custom artwork on a basketball, blanket, and glasses

  

GLCO x Officine Generale on a collab of eyewear. Our launch party was thrown in Paris at one of their shops. 

 

Kurt Rambis for GLCO x Mitchell & Ness: a collection of Rambis Lakers merch, the highlight being eyewear inspired by the iconic frames he wore on-court.

 

Introduced a new bio acetate

With our Spring/Summer collection, we introduced our GREEN COLLECTION, a series of frames constructed from a bio-acetate material that is bio-based and biodegradable. Our bio-acetate reduces its impact on the environment, producing 60% less CO2 than traditional plastics and consuming 53% less energy than industry standards.

Shot our upcoming Mr. Leight campaign with Rick Rodney in Malibu

We can’t say enough great things about our great friend and hardcore singer, dadcore camper and world renowned duct tape photographer. Rick Rodney. It’s always a great time on set with him.

 

Garrett played in a Vegas poker tournament 

We can’t say much about his poker skills (challenge him to a hand if you need some lunch money), but the comment section went wild over his multiple outfit changes. On brand.

Eros, our graphic designer, got a tattoo

Not much to say except it’s sick.
