Born and bred in West Hollywood, luxury eyewear label Oliver Peoples opened its first boutique in 1987 on the iconic Sunset Boulevard. With bespoke details, heritage design, and premium craftsmanship at the core of the brand’s ethos, Oliver Peoples has maintained a passion for superior sunglasses steeped in authentic Californian culture since its inception. Classic eyewear for the modern man or woman, each item is made to be adored for its authentic design that transcends quick trends to become an irreplaceable wardrobe essential.
Each frame is hand-crafted with meticulous attention to detail to ensure top-grade quality, combining state-of-the-art technology with the inimitable human touch of expert artisans. Every step of the manufacturing process is carried out with the utmost care, from the hand-inserted pins and plaques to the four-day tumbling process that smooths the custom raw acetate frames to polished perfection. The label’s sunglasses are also renowned for their exclusive lens technology and selection that utilises polarized and photochromic mineral glass to offer superior protection and visual clarity. The lenses are manufactured at the prestigious Barberini factory in Silvi, Italy, where each piece is treated with high performance coatings that assure maximum optical precision and durability. A special ink-transfer process also allows for the creation of the label’s subtle yet distinctive breath logo, which is a signature that only reveals the branded symbols when warm air fogs up the lens.
Inspired by the unique art and lifestyle of Los Angeles, Oliver People’s sunglasses are loved all around the world for their delicate designs that nod to archival silhouettes and timeless style. Intricate filigreed metal frames and perennial accents give every pair a beautifully curated aesthetic that combines the best of the old and the new. Earth-toned hues and natural tortoiseshell are spotlighted in every collection for its classic appeal, and discreet branding lend a pared-back luxurious touch for those in-the-know.
To this day, the label stays true to its original vision of creating authentically designed and manufactured eyewear that is innovative yet enduring in its charm. Invest in your new keep-forever pair with THE ICONIC—with an enviable range of premium sunglasses online, you’re sure to find one that catches your eye.
