GL x WANT Launch Party

By Emily

At GLCO we value attention to detail and like to partner with brands who share this sensibility. If you look closely at any one of our frames, you might notice that our hinges alternate between gold and silver. Now as coincidence would have it – you’ll also discover a similarity if you purchase a purse or wallet from WANT Les Essentiels. The devil is in the details and Want’s zippers are also gold and silver. And the similarities between GLCO and Want don’t stop there. It was only natural that we decided to collaborate and it’s how the the leather wrapped Wilson Sun with Clip was born.  

To toast the launch of one of our most luxurious offerings thus far, we gathered together a group of people we admire at the Want store in New York City. Familiar faces mixed with new as Garrett, Dexter and Byron showed off the new frames in both Mocha and Black leather.

Garrett and Lily Wan meet IRL after she penned a lovely feature on the GLCO design studio for Surface Magazine.


Garrett, Stephanie Mark and Dexter share glasses of vino to help get the party started.

GLCO fam in the house! Sales rep Will Pettigrew, Danny Ramos and GLCO Grand manager Tyrell Alleyne set the standard for sharp dressing at our launch cocktail hour.

Head Coach Garrett and Dexter make a great impression on Lauren Joseph of Departures.

The one and only Nick Wooster everybody. He’s always down to support GLCO!

Clement and Sarah Pascal toast with to rose...and GLCO x WANT.

Byron and Nick cozy up to the camera – thank you WANT for hosting us in your beautiful store!

We think Obi Anyanwu might be an owner of a new pair of GLCO x WANT shades sometime soon….

Cheers to all who came out, and to those who couldn’t make it we’ll see you next time! Big thanks to BFA for the photos, Apellation for the delicious wine, Hudson River Flowers and our PR power team at Agence Zoi.
