Garrett Leight California Optical was created in 2010 and was fuelled by a group of young, passionate purveyors of eyewear, dedicated to creating classic designs by combining perfect craftsmanship with timeless aesthetics.

Founded in Venice Beach and designed at their studio in the Arts District of Downtown Los Angeles, GLCO is influenced and inspired by the people, places, and stories of California. Each design incorporates the easy-going philosophy of California culture and is stamped with VC/CA 90291 as a reminder of their Venice roots. 

GLCO is dedicated to reinvention. THey look at classic shapes through a modern lens and redefine iconic silhouettes with contemporary fashions. Trendless and timeless, they never go out of style. 

For many of their styles they draw inspiration from the movies, music, art and fashion of our formative years. They also mix the spirit of the time with materials, colours, and details from past eras and what they believe eyewear will look like in the future.
