Sunglasses Style

Your guide to finding the perfect sunglasses in Los Angeles.


tom-ford-sunglassesIn the market for sunglasses in LA? This season, eyewear options expand way beyond the Wayfarer. Consider a pair from hip new Garrett Leight California Optical, designed by the son of Oliver Peoples founder Larry Leight. Similar to his father’s iconic styles, Garrett’s are vintage-inspired with contemporary tweaks, like preppy tortoiseshell accents and punchy colored frames. “It’s my intention to sell these styles for 20 years because they are timeless classics,” says Garrett. The line can be found at his boutique, A. Kinney Court (1423 Abbot Kinney Blvd., Venice, 310.392.3400). At Destination Sama (9530 Brighton Way, Beverly Hills, 310.271.1734), just off Rodeo Drive, find the complete Sama, Badgley Mischka and Loree Rodkin collections. Sama’s Jackie O-style oversize frames and modernized cat-eye styles are glamorous picks. At the luxe new Tom Ford (346 N. Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, 310.270.9440) flagship, there are au courant choices including round frames big and small, exaggerated cat-eyes and flashy aviators with yellow-gold mirrored lenses.
