L.A. meets Paris, in this collaboration frame inspired by strong and sexy female icons.

Los Angeles, CA, September 16th, 2014

West Coast eyewear brand Garrett Leight California Optical is pleased to announce their collaboration frame with French shoe designer Amélie Pichard, inspired by strong and sexy icons of past and present.

“Most of our sunglasses are unisex, so it was fun to create a frame that is so overtly feminine,” says Garrett Leight, founder of Garrett Leight California Optical.

“Amelie has a fearless sense of style that we find really inspiring.”

«Garrett capted instantly my universe, he played with my iconic materials like the tortoise shell or the glitter. We would like to make a unisex shape with a mix of very sophisticated materials. Glitter dust of the lenses is sparkling under the sunlight of Venice. I love it.»

Three iconic shades of femininity are reflected through three distinct looks: Grace, a bold frame with cool blue lenses inspired by Grace Jones. Juliette, a flirty tortoise frame with soft green lenses inspired by Juliette Lewis, and Pamela, a lovely glitter beige frame with gold lenses, appropriately named after Pamela Anderson.

Amélie Pichard injects dreamy surrealism and glamour into Garrett Leight’s California cool aesthetic. The result is a frame that is playfully fierce and undeniably feminine.
