Garrett Leight and New York-based designer Ulla Johnson have teamed up to launch a limited-edition eyewear collection. The collaboration features a new style in an oversized 70s-influenced silhouette, offered as both a sunglass and an optical in an array of colors. The frame was a welcome departure from Garrett Leight's signature smaller, refined silhouettes and celebrated Ulla Johnson's feminine, boho-chic style.
The color selection for the frames paralleled Ulla Johnson's Spring 2018 Collection which spoke to transparency and invisible protection from today's political unrest. Crystal frames and whimsical rose-colored lenses added a layer of romance and optimism to the collection. The bicoastal brands proved to be serendipitous partners, sharing a similar easy-going style philosophy and a commitment to quality and craftsmanship.
