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.
Stella McCartney may be to blame for the resurgence of cobalt blue as one of the key colors for fall.

In this week’s Rei Kawakubo tribute on Style.com, Taylor Tomasi Hill wears lots of covetable Comme pieces, but she’s also sporting a pair of neon orange reflective shades from Westward Leaning that might be catching your fancy. We’ve had our eyes on (or behind, rather) these sunglasses since the San Francisco-based label launched in March, and more recently, Style.com’s market director, Marina Larroude, featured a pair of the unisex mirrored lenses in her Techno Beach story. Now they’re giving us more to love—they have just unveiled the neon style with white frames ($165). And you can feel good buying them because this is a brand with vision; for every pair sold, Westward Leaning donates to $10 to the specific charity associated with each style.
