Why Choose Oliver Peoples sunglasses?
If you love sunglasses that are totally discreet and subtle when it comes to branding, you will love Oliver Peoples. The brand's eyewear collection has been designed to not use any other-the-top branding or special logos. Only those who are very familiar with the brand are able to recognise its distinctive eyewear. Celebrity fans of this brand include Brad Pitt, Jennifer Aniston, Patrick Bateman, Justin Timberlake, Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson, Rihanna, and Jay Z who are well known for wearing designer sunglasses whenever they're out and about.
The Oliver Peoples Story
American brothers Larry Leight and Dennis Leight opened their first optical boutique in 1986. The brothers bought their first collection of vintage eyewear frames and signed their receipt under the name “Oliver Peoples”. So when the duo decided to release their own collection of frames and spectacles a year after, they felt that is was only right to use the name for their brand. Oliver Peoples frames are significantly different to any other optical model out there.
Oliver Peoples is unique and totally distinctive; by getting rid of the entire labelling which most designer brands love to do, Oliver Peoples frames become almost anonymous. Another great benefit of the company’s products is that all of the eyewear has names instead of numbers so you can ask for a frame specifically by model name. Popular sunglasses models include Benedict, Gregory Peck, Sheldrake, Fairmont and Remick.
Oliver Peoples & Zooey Deschanel
In 2013, the LA-based brand teamed up with actress Zooey Deschanel for her second short film titled Catch a Tuesday. Oliver Peoples even dedicated a beautiful frame in her name. The collections of sunglasses are cool and quirky but also stylish and sophisticated. Whether you are into retro-inspired designs or prefer a modern take on retro designs, there’s a frame in this collection for you.
