HISTORY
In 1986, opticians Dennis and Larry Leight purchased an estate collection of vintage, American-made eyewear. The assortment included thousands of beautifully filigreed rimless and metal frames, including clip-on sun lenses, produced by iconic American companies (i.e. Bausch & Lomb, American Optical). The frames were unworn, in mint condition, in their original packaging. Given their love for 1940s - 1960s eyewear, it was a goldmine for the Leight brothers, who envisioned designing an authentic collection of classic eyewear and creating a unique retail experience in their own gallery. They purchased the entire lot, which included a receipt signed with the name “Oliver Peoples,” who they reasoned was the original owner or distributor. When they decided to sell the estate collection later that same year in their first optical boutique on legendary Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood, California, it only seemed fitting to use that name in his honor.

The Oliver Peoples collection, inspired by the vintage frames purchased in the estate sale, debuted at Vision Expo East as wholesale in 1987. The unveiling was quite a departure from the futuristic styles and geometric shapes dominant in the late 80’s and fortuitously timed, as runway fashion was moving in a vintage-inspired direction.

THE PRODUCT
Oliver Peoples reflects the Southern California lifestyle – elements of fashion, film, art, sport, and the unique Los Angeles landscape. This includes a major Hollywood presence, as the brand has been a longtime favorite of many popular celebrities and fashionistas around the world. Designs are easily recognizable by identifiable elements attributed solely to Oliver Peoples – specifically the lack of branding or visible logo. The absence of this otherwise prevalent component in other brands lends understated sophistication to the accessory. Conceived in-house and crafted by hand, most frames are retro-styled, often using vintage shapes, details and colors, while incorporating cutting-edge technology and trends. Many pieces from the collection are iconic, inspired by legendary famous faces, such as Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison or Audrey Hepburn in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. Produced in Italy, the collections use the finest quality materials available, ensuring beautiful eyewear that lasts a lifetime.
