Eyewear: Westward Leaning
Marc Yuquico is a buyer at Holt Renfrew, so he knows a thing or two about being stylish. He fell in love with these aviator sunglasses from Westward Leaning, thanks to the bronze tint on the lenses. “Not many people have bronze lenses,” he told us, “so these sunglasses are definitely unique.”
Inspired by one of history’s most famous airplanes, these “Concorde 7″ frames are Westward Leaning’s take on the iconic pilot’s glasses (a.k.a.”aviator” shades). These glasses combine a shiny “Tokyo Tortoise” acetate with a black metal frame. Walnut side inlays and bronze ceramic nose pads add to the unique materials used. The tint on the mirrored lenses is actually labeled “Rose Gold,” though in different lighting it can project hues of brown, orange and red as well.
Westward Leaning is known for donating $10 from every sale towards supporting education. Proceeds from the Concorde Collection support the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), whose mission is to make excellence in science education a reality for all students.
