First Look: Westward Leaning Wintermute
Since launching in March, do-good eyewear line Westward Leaning’s neon-coated, reflective sunglasses have been seen everywhere. Taylor Tomasi Hill sported an orange pair of her own in our Comme feature and style stars like Kate Bosworth and Natalie Portman have been snapped wearing them. The San Francisco-based label, however, is taking things down a notch with its latest Wintermute collection. “I love science-fiction, especially cyberpunk novels like Neuromancer, and have always wanted to design a pair of glasses that was inspired by this genre,” the label’s cofounder and CEO Robert Denning tells Style.com of the more understated sunglasses in matte gray and black. “To me, the aesthetic of cyberpunk can be summed up with a color: muted neon—think of the movie Blade Runner.” The collection ($150 each) launches on WestwardLeaning.com today, and Style.com has the exclusive first look, above.
