Oliver Peoples

Born from a love of vintage eyewear from the 1940’s to 1960’s brothers Larry and Dennis Leight created Oliver Peoples in 1987. It was a departure from the futuristic and modern styles of the late 1980s and was an instant hit. Since then they have continued to create unique and timeless styles creating trends rather than following them.

Oliver Peoples frames and sunglasses are made using the finest quality materials such as Italian acetate and Japanese titanium. They are one of the only fashion brands to offer advanced lens technology in their sunglasses such as Polarized lenses, photochromic lenses and extra anti-glare coatings.

Notable styles this season include the Benedict - a classic unisex aviator with a subtle wrap around for great glare protection and a titanium frame for lightweight durability. As seen on Bradley Cooper in the hit movie the Hangover Part 2 and Robert Downey Jnr in the movie Due Date

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the landmark film To Kill a Mockingbird, Oliver Peoples has collaborated with the family of star Gregory Peck to create a replica of the spectacles worn by him throughout the film. It is a bold acetate style featuring a classic keyhole bridge and is perfect for anyone who, like Atticus Finch, does not choose to follow the crowd.
