A Maverick Frame of Mind

View all 7 Photos

“Mav-er-ick: an unorthodox or independent individual.”
These LA-based makers aim to make better choices available to Maverick people, no longer restricted to unoriginal frames made from conventional plastic or metal. Custom designed and crafted by hand, each pair of sunglasses by Maverick Eyewear is flawlessly constructed from wood to take full advantage of the intrinsic of the beauty in the sustainable material. “We’re not handcrafting who you are. We’re just making it a lot easier to say, ‘This is ME.’ “ The words that these West Coasters live by express their deep appreciation for individuality and allows for the unique ability to customize a personal look “that refuses to conform.” Once we had the chance to try them out in person, there was no doubt that these unconventional shades live up to their name; refined craftsmanship and a simple form accentuate the seamless connection of natural elements. Best of all, you can make it your own with a choice of three distinct styles (Malibu, Manhattan, or Venice), seven polarized lens colors (campfire smoke, pacific blue, mojave gold, pine green, high octane orange, purple heart, or steel grey) and five types of gorgeous hardwood (birdseye maple, cherry, dark walnut, teak, zebra) – though it may be hard to choose. You don’t have to be in CA to rock these stylish and sustainable specs, but a trip to the beach couldn’t hurt.

​Lizzie Wright is an aspiring artist and designer with a passion for the written word. While she works on her BFA in Industrial Design at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), she spends her (rare) spare time riding around Providence on her trusty Cannondale and drinking lots of coffee. She is especially fascinated by the dichotomy between aesthetic form and function, which has an immense influence on her work. As a lover of the natural world, Lizzie plans to focus on Nature, Culture, and Sustainability Studies to pursue a more efficient future for design. Read more by visiting her website
