The German Collective

Five optical store owners from Germany, including featured boutiques on Eyestylist, Klar in Darmstadt and Leidmann, Munich, are teaming up together to launch limited eyewear models in their unique stores across the country – in an initiative inspired by a mutual love of great design and good friendship. Their first edition? A Limited Edition acetate sunglass design with Californian eyewear designer, Garrett Leight, produced in a run of just 150 for the five participating stores.
