This Season's most exciting eyewear collaboration: We’ve teamed up with renowned Brooklyn-based jeweler Alexis Bittar to create a truly special collaboration. Westward Leaning’s handmade Japanese acetate frames combined with Alexis Bittar’s stunning jewelry accents are a match made in heaven.
Giving Back: This collection was inspired by volcanoes - volcanic textures, molten metals, and all the associated imagery of how the surface of the earth is formed. And while volcanoes can be beautiful and inspiring, they can also bring with them terribly destructive power and impacts on human life and society. Therefore, a percentage of net profits from the sale of these glasses will go to the National Parks Foundation, which is a leading source of information and study on volcanoes and their impacts, both on the natural world and human development.
Exclusive in Orange: Each pair of Westward Leaning x Alexis Bittar sunglasses comes with our iconic signature small case in exclusive Alexis Bittar orange.
It all started here: The classic Westward Leaning sunglass. We set out to create the perfect wayfarer using only the finest materials and best craftsmanship. Each frame is meticulously handmade in Japan and features high-quality shatterproof lenses with 100% UV protection. The Pioneer shape was designed to be comfortable and flattering on all face shapes. Its super-durable construction and smooth, high-quality hinges ensure these will be your favorite shades for years to come.
Pioneer, our first design launched in 2012, is an original take on the wayfarer shape which pays tribute to California's pioneering heritage. It represents our hope, determination, and goodwill for California's future and is the gold standard of our collection.
All Westward Leaning sunglasses are designed to be flattering and comfortable on every face. Our handmade acetate frames are highly adjustable for the perfect fit, from very loose to very tight. Learn more about how to adjust the fit of your glasses here.
