Mr. Leight Sunglasses
A bold spirit of creativity and craftsmanship
Combining artisanal craftsmanship, high-quality materials, innovation, and evolved design, Mr. Leight sunglasses are the perfect finishing touch to any slick dresser’s look.
It’s a family affair
Mr. Leight was born from what can only be described as eyewear royalty. Father and son duo, Larry Leight (founder of Oliver Peoples) and Garrett Leight (founder of Garrett Leight) have come together to form a brand that plays on both their strengths. Larry has over 30 years of experience as Creative Director of one of the first, independent eyewear brands and Garrett has an entrepreneurial spirit and a contemporary vision. Together they create premium eyewear with unquestionable style.
Made for the high-life
Each pair of glasses has been designed for glamorous people, places, and lifestyles. They are a modern-day interpretation of the jet-set aesthetic with each collection being inspired by, and based upon, an aspirational destination. For example, the brand’s first-ever collection was centered around Southern California, and in particular Hollywood Hills and Beverly Hills. The frames were designed to imagine the activities one might do there, such as tennis and cocktail parties. If you can imagine the photographs of Slim Aarons, then you can envision the style of Mr. Leight.
Glasses come in a range of polished styles. Square frames feature a selection of cured Japanese custom acetates that are enlivened with titanium components; combination P3 sunglasses are enriched by intricate filigree patterns and titanium details and come in colors like white gold and crystal platinum. These and other models in the collections are a modern-day throwback to the Golden Age of Hollywood.
Mr. Leight’s creations are at the intersection of past and present. Marrying classic influences with a contemporary eye, to create styles that are timeless.
