A collaboration between father and son, Larry and Garrett Leight, Mr. Leight bridges multiple generations of design and craftsmanship to deliver superlative contemporary eyewear. Together, they are committed to creating uncommonly thoughtful, beautiful, and original designs that combine the classic and the new and reflect the spectrum of their immense eyewear knowledge and expertise.
Mr. Leight represents a perfect union of Larry Leight’s decades-long history working with the finest eyewear craftsmen in the world as the Founder and Creative Director of Oliver Peoples, and Garrett Leight’s entrepreneurial spirit and uncompromising contemporary vision in his own endeavor, Garrett Leight California Optical. For both Larry and Garrett, creating impeccable, iconic eyewear is a truly lifelong pursuit.
Beautifully designed, exquisitely detailed, and constructed with the utmost technical precision, each Mr. Leight frame evinces a perfect balance of classic and contemporary influences: quietly unexpected, undeniably beautiful, and completely timeless.
The Design of Experience
With every piece, Mr. Leight deftly negotiates the tensions between irreverence and sophistication, tradition and innovation, the past and the present. The brand pays homage to timeless style while also advancing a bold spirit of creativity that is necessarily of the present moment. Uniting aspects of classic eyewear design with a wide array of artistic, cultural, and subcultural references and experiences that have inspired Larry and Garrett throughout their lives, Mr. Leight tirelessly seeks out beauty, style, and interest wherever it can be found.
Mr. Leight brings together rich traditions of artisanal craftsmanship, unrivaled technical engineering and design, and the highest quality material palette to form exquisite objects of desire. Each frame is handmade and finished in Japan by master craftsmen that have worked directly with Larry for decades. The peerless care and finesse they bring to every piece has been refined over generations, and perfectly embodies the respect for tradition and the embrace of innovation at the heart of the Mr. Leight brand.
