Looking for sunglasses which can make you look chic, and at the same time, provide the protection you need? Mosley Tribes, a global lifestyle brand, is the right one for you. This eyewear-rich collection was created by founder, creative director and trained optician Larry Leight in 1987.

The L.A.-based company’s aesthetics is inspired by a variety of things, including street luxury, sport culture and iconic fashion. Each eyewear is a re-interpretation of vintage classics and a fusion of couture and quality performance.

Leight, in his Vapors magazine interview, defined his line as “a very young, Americana-inspired brand. The inspirations, however, come from a variety of different places, people, etc. It is a part of the brand’s global appeal… The brand remains consistent and is classic style, sport culture, and street luxury.”

He goes on to add that fashion capital New York is one of the many inspirations of his numerous collections.

Mosley Tribes has also collaborated with other fashion bigwigs such as Crooks and Castles, Maharishi, and Free City.
