STYLE Westward Leaning Collabs With Jewelry Label, Alexis Bittar, on Capsule Collection By Jamie Wilson Monday, November 12, 2018 12:30 AM SAN FRANCISCO—Sunglass brand, Westward Leaning, and Brooklyn-based jewelry design label, Alexis Bittar have come together to create an innovative sunglass capsule collection for fall 2018. The collaboration, inspired by volcanic textures and molten metals includes Westward Leaning’s classic silhouette, the Pioneer, and best-selling Double Bridge design. The capsule also includes new styles like the oversized Big TV and cat eye Lynx sunglass shapes. Alexis Bittar’s touches can been seen throughout the capsule collection in the brand’s signature rose gold encrusted snake and removable gold tassels that add a whimsical touch to the collection. Each design’s embellishment consists of Japanese acetate jeweled accents in mixed yellow and rose gold tones, as well as rhodium and ruthenium metals that create textural elements. The collection is available on both companys’ websites as well as in Alexis Bittar boutiques. A portion from the sales of the Westward Leaning x Alexis Bittar collection will go to the National Parks Foundation, a leading source of information and study on volcanoes and their impacts; both on the natural world and human development.
