Venice, Los Angeles in 2011. Garrett Leight releases four slick sunglass styles – the Hampton, the Rialto, Speedway and Brooks – which shake the industry up a little bit and establish the young brand as a major player. Pure, sun-drenched California cool is what defines the brand’s aesthetic. And an unerring commitment to quality is what defines its eyewear-making process. Each style is designed in California and made from the finest materials – from Italy, Japan and China – and made in a highly respected workshop in China.
