(Images do not depict current stock. Contact ABM opticians to find out current stock from this brand)Oliver Peoples was born in the heart of West Hollywood, California. On iconic Sunset Boulevard, in 1986, Creative Director Larry Leight opened the doors to The Company’s first optical boutique. The Oliver Peoples vision was to design a collection of eyewear with a unique retail experience in a gallery-like setting. The Company has maintained a classic yet innovative approach to eyewear from day one, presenting vintage-inspired frames that were a significant departure from the futuristic styles and geometric shapes dominant in the late 80’s. Oliver Peoples metal frames are made from titanium, beta- titanium and alloy, ensuring lightweight style but durable function.
The vintage- inspired aesthetic is modernised with laminates, enamel inlays and acetate/metal combinations. The embossed Oliver Peoples insignia found on the acetate frames is a subtle detail (a discerning way to identify these frames). There is also a custom core wire found within the acetate style featuring a refined, embossed logo pattern. Adhesives are never used to construct these frames, as structural integrity is key. The functional pins shown on these acetates strengthen and reinforce the frames. The five and seven barrel hinges are exclusive to Oliver Peoples and are secured with custom hardware (not with adhesive or glue). This luxury eyewear brand can be found in more than 70 countries and is featured at select opticians, department stores and fashion boutiques.
