After launching with just 4 frames in Venice Beach in 2011, Garrett Leight California Optical are on a rapid upward trajectory. Now they rub shoulders with the leading independent eye-wear brands on the planet. Grey St. Optician was one of the first GLCO stockists and it has been a pleasure to share the journey with them.
Each frame is named after a Venice street and embossed with VC/CA90291. They are influenced and inspired by the people, places and stories of California. With effortless cool, they perfectly encapsulate the West coast vibe… and we love it!
Each Oliver Peoples frame is inspired and created in the design studio in West Hollywood, California. Remaining true to the sophisticated, intellectual aesthetic made iconic by the brand, tortoiseshell hues feature heavily in the collection.
Each frame is meticulously handcrafted in a dedicated factory following a process that combines both technological advancements and the human touch. A dedicated team of highly trained technicians assembles the individual frame components and hand polishes them in a process similar to fine jewelry. The result is the finely crafted eye-wear with enduring integrity and authenticity of design.
A category of one. DITA has had the unique pleasure of serving the world’s most discerning clientele. You can’t literally see the teams of designers, research and development, or the number of months it took to make a pair of DITA frames. But you will always feel its presence when you hold it in your hands. Which is why DITA’s design and manufacturing standards are regarded as the benchmark by which all other luxury eyewear brands are judged.
Whether its effortless West coast cool, classic tortoiseshell, or a little bit of luxury, the California Dreaming – late summer spectacular is sure to have something for you!
