Teddy Hamilton

We met Teddy at the Gogosha Optique store in Silver Lake, where she told us that her signature style revolves around a great pair of glasses and a bold-colored lipstick. These chic and sassy Garrett Leight “Louella” frames, and her magenta lips seem to fit the bill. Designed in Venice Beach, California, these frames are handcrafted from a cured cellulose acetate from Japan and Italy, along with stainless steel gold and silver hinges. Though this model was originally designed as sunglasses, Teddy swapped out the plum gradient lenses on the frames for clear optical ones. We love the mix of acetate and metal, which lend a sophisticated and delicate touch to the oversized frames. The slight cat eye and narrow bridge add further visual interest. And while we’ve seen a lot of tortoiseshell this summer, this soft taupe presents a nice and neutral alternative, complimenting the shape of the frames without taking away from its uniqueness.
