New Sunglasses from Want Les Essentiels Are a Summer Must-Have

California sunglasses brand Garrett Leight California Optical joins forces with Want Les Essentiels…

Southern California casual meets high style with this new collection of sunglasses, pairing the refined, quality-driven aesthetics of Montreal’s Want Les Essentiels with the 5-year-old Garrett Leight California Optical (GLCO) brand in Venice, Calif. The capsule collection’s two new round wire/acetate frames—one in black with oil-and-vinegar acetate temples, and the other in mocha with demi-tortoise acetate temples—are versatile and chic, designed to transcend this summer’s capricious trends. Priced at $525, the handcrafted frames are trimmed with goat leather and can be paired with mirrored, UV-protected, clip-on lenses ($235) made to defend against city and seaside sunrays. The new collection is available in GLCO and Want Les Essentiels stores in New York City and online. (,
