Oliver Peoples Sunglasses
A cultural vision
A celebration of culture, Oliver Peoples sunglasses perfectly capture the chemistry of music, film and fashion.
From California with love
Growing up in the 60s and 70s in California, founder Larry Leight was heavily motivated by the atmosphere and vibe of the period. Each model of Oliver Peoples is influenced by a cultural happening: for example, the O’Malley - one of the most famous designs from the brand - was inspired by the glasses of Peter O’Malley, the 1970s president of LA-based baseball team The Dodgers.
A cinematic beauty
Although the glasses have an undoubtedly Californian spirit, their ties to film are just as strong. The world of Hollywood inspires the brand: they have released a Gregory Peck collection, designed after the glasses he wore during his role in To Kill a Mockingbird. And Oliver Peoples inspires the world of film in return: their O’Malley glasses were famously worn in American Psycho and started a trend for Wall Street-chic. They are also making their own creative stamp on motion picture, creating short movies, and working with producers such as Robert Evans of The Godfather.
Not like everybody else
These are exclusive glasses made for lovers of the unusual. Frames are manufactured in limited quantities and each pair has a deliberate ‘anti-logo’ labeling to appeal to those who like to be understated in their sartorial choices. Finishing touches, such as their opaque finishes and unique ‘breath’ logo are discreet ways to ensure you are acquiring a truly special piece.
Authentic, original, these are sunglasses that stay close to their Californian roots, transporting wearers to the sun-kissed beaches of Santa Monica in the 60s.
