We photographed Eddie at the opening of the Maison Kitsuné store in Paris, where he was sporting these vintage-inspired “Wilson” frames from Garrett Leight. The frames are a contemporary take on the classic “Windsor” design – named after the town in England where this round, wire-rimmed style was first popularized. The iconic look has been seen on everyone from Ernest Hemingway to John Lennon.
Garrett Leight’s version is made from a stainless steel metal frame, with acetate temples and gold-engraved metal arms and bridge. We love the unique combination of tortoiseshell, with a “bourbon tortoise” on the front, and a “matte spotted tortoise” on the sides. It’s an antique design that still feel relevant and wearable today.
