Westward Leaning x Alexis Bittar Lynx 05
Fall 2018’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.
Volcanic Bejeweled Inlay in Rhodium: Lynx 05 features super silver mirrored lenses and a polished black acetate. The frame is accented by an Alexis Bittar rhodium tone rocky metal side inlay encrusted with jewels.
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.
Frame Color: Polished Black Acetate
Lens: Super Silver Mirror
Signature Side Inlay: Rhodium Tone Rocky Metal with Jewels
A modern take on the cat eye. Lynx is inspired by the namesake constellation which was discovered in the late 17th century, usually observed in the northern sky, and named after the fierce feline.
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.
