A noted supporter of emerging brands, Olivia Palermo has worn Westward Leaning sunglasses since our launch in 2012, making our glasses part of some of her most iconic looks of the past few years. In recognition of Olivia's exceptional style, honed by years of travel, we've named each of the models after some of her favorite places around the world, from Palermo, Sicily and Saline, to Saint Germain and Palm Beach.
THE DESIGN & MATERIALS
Beyond the classic Wayfarer frame shape, the defining feature of this collaboration is the use of our muted gold reflective lenses, which offer an exterior mirrored coating of tarnished gold that is both subtle and understated.
The designs feature either green sea glass or gold side materials, each inlaid at the temple. Like all of our sunglasses, these unique materials tell a story: in this case, the materials were inspired by Olivia's extensive travels and unique aesthetic perspective.
By varying the frame colors and side materials, the models range in style from classic to avant-garde. As a whole, the collection reflects the fresh and unexpected approach to personal style that has made Olivia a fashion fixture.
In honor of this collaboration, $10 from the sale of this model will be donated to ADCAM's Maasai Project, which works to preserve and support the Maasai culture. Olivia is a longtime supporter and currently serves as a brand ambassador for the organization. We are honored to recognize Olivia's commitment to the Maasai Project through this collaboration; her active and genuine support of this worthy cause is inspiring.
As Olivia noted, "Not only am I working with Westward Leaning on creating timeless sunglasses that I love, I am also able to support ADCAM, a charity that is near and dear to my heart. I am so honored to donate proceeds of the sale to benefit ADCAM."
