If you take away anything from sport wrap shades and taped bridges, it’s that glasses should not be an eyesore.
Set your sights on A. Kinney Court’s Garrett Leight. Getting in on the family business (his father co-founded Oliver Peoples), Leight has a clear vision with his new optical line, GLCO.
Seen as one part homage to bespectacled literary figures of the past (Hunter S. Thompson, Henry Miller) and another to the colorful inhabitants of the Westside, the Venice native fuses styles from different eras for timeless, laid-back frames.
The men’s and women’s range is deep, but here are a few faves: library-chic Rialto, Speedway updated aviator, contemporary cat-eye Lucille, and the Hampton folding flip-clip.
Sometimes you just need to focus.
Available at A. Kinney Court, 1423 Abbot Kinney Boulevard, between California and Milwood Avenues, Venice (310-392-3400 or akinneycourt.com), $195-$340.
