The brand takes huge focus on the superior craftsmanship of its products, using the finest quality materials, exclusive product details and innovative lens technology. Not reliant on an overly showy logo, Oliver Peoples is very much known for it’s authentic and consistent voice within the eyewear market and is often worn by like-minded individuals who have the same progressive and distinctive taste.
Founded by Larry Leight who was the creative director for decades before its acquisition by Luxottica via Oakley, the brand is solely designed in L.A. and made in both Italy and Japan. As a brand they’ve been seen all over popular culture, from Christian Bale’s Patrick Bateman in American Psycho to Brad Pitt’s Tyler Durden in Fight Club – who’s seen wearing three different Oliver People 523’s – to the Cary Grant collection, Hollywood has deemed them the coolest of sunglasses available. They’ve also been worn by the likes of Bono and Noel Gallagher.
With unisex and men’s and women’s styles available, there’s a whole array of different shapes, frames, and lens colours to choose from. Iconic classics such as the Gregory Peck, the timeless Sheldrake and the Forman L.A. (worn by the likes of Di Caprio), to name a few.
