One of my favorite ways to accessorize any look and make a fashion statement about our personal style is with a unique pair of sunglasses. Luckily for us, Garrett Leight California Optical just created an optical accessories design collaboration with the fashion label Ruffian. I received the insider's information and a front-row seat at their runway show. Read below for the behind-the-scenes fashion scoop on the show and the latest designs from their Spring/Summer 2015 collection.
Hosted at the Sarah Gavlak Gallery, Ruffian’s exquisite ready-to-wear collection was unveiled alongside a mix of classic frames exclusively created in custom bright and neutral hues for the brand.
"We are thrilled to be collaborating with Garrett Leight California Optical," says Brian Wolk and Claude Morais, Ruffian's creative directors, in a joint statement. "American made luxury and the spirit of entrepreneurialism is a cornerstone of the Ruffian brand, much like it is for Garrett Leight, which makes this original collaboration particularly exhilarating for all of us."
The Garrett Leight California Optical x Ruffian collection frames will include the following styles: pink crystal Dillon 50 with rosé mirror lens, black Dillon 50 with black solid mirror lens, ivory Pacific 48 with pink flash on clear lens and black Pacific 48 with pink flash on clear lens.
