Westward leaning was founded in 2012 so it is a fairly new brand within the eyewear industry. Since they started, their signature design is the “side inlay”.
The brand is from Californian and each piece is hand assembled in San Francisco. The side inlay always come from unique materials such as reclaimed wood, marble, gemstone, beading and embroidery just to name a few sources.
With their distinctive design, they have attracted a celeb following and the latest celebs spotted wearing Westward leaning is Christina Aguilera, Rita Ora and Gigi Hadid.
Both Christina Aguilera and Rita Ora have been spotted in the Westward Leaning Sport style. In the UK they are available to purchase from net-a-porter.com and do you want to know what the good news is? They are not ridiculously expensive.
At £165 and you do get quite a few perks such as adjustable non-slip nose pads and wire-core temples for a custom fit. They are lightweight and have shatter proof, anti scratch lenses with an anti-reflective coating. Not only that, the lenses are also hydrophobic (sweat proof) and Oliophobic (finger print resistant). Nice!
