London’s Oliver Goldsmith and L.A.-based Oliver Peoples eyewear brands share more than first names and cult followings: The founders of each inspired their next of kin to create eyeglass lines. Claire Goldsmith’s namesake collection (15 All Saints Rd., London; clairegoldsmith.com) references her great-grandfather’s classic British style with colorful updates to frames, like the Bailey (top, $445). Garrett Leight California Optical (165 S. La Brea Ave., L.A.; garrettleight.com) was started by the son of Oliver Peoples’ Larry Leight. Glasses like the GL x TL No. 2 (below, $450) are vintage-inspired.
