Oliver Peoples Sunglasses

Vintage Inspired Sunglasses by Oliver Peoples

Oliver Peoples was founded in 1986 on Sunset Boulevard in the heart of West Hollywood, California, when Co-Founder and Creative Director Larry Leight opened the doors to The Company’s first optical boutique.

Earlier in 1986, Leight discovered an estate collection of vintage American-made eyewear that included thousands of beautifully filigreed rimless and metal frames, including clip-on metal sunglasses produced by iconic American companies. All the frames were unworn, in mint condition, and in original packaging. He purchased the entire lot, which included a receipt signed “Oliver Peoples,” who he reasoned was the original owner or distributor. When he decided to sell the estate collection in the retail store, it seemed fitting they use the name. It was then that the Oliver Peoples vision was realized: to design a collection of eyewear and create 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. Because runway fashion was moving in a heritage rich direction, the debut of the retro collection was fortuitously timed, as the direction of eyewear changed globally.
