Japanese label The SoloIst and Los Angeles-based Oliver Peoples have teamed up once again for a small collection of eyewear. In total, three different styles will be available, with each dropping in two gradient colorways — black and light brown. As you’ll see from the shots above (and below), there’s a more classical style that’s been crafted and one that’s a bit more modern as well to appeal to a wider range of folks out there. The frames are set to drop in early Spring 2012 to the Japan/Asian market, though you can expect a small quantity to hit Oliver Peoples Boutiques as well.
California-based Oliver Peoples has hit the big 2-5 and to celebrate, they designed a small capsule collection that’s made in Japan and available in limited numbers. The four styles include the Myriel, NDG Flip Clip, Florenz 46 and J Gold, with each piece made with the utmost care and detail. (via hb)
Oliver Peoples’ Red Havana Sheldrake Sunglasses are a great pickup as they feature a classic design reminiscent of Andy Warhol and are fitted with Cosmic Tone vintage glass lenses with an Oleophobic coating to help repel fingerprints, water, oil and dust. The acetate frames are hand sculpted with a unique keyhole shaped bridge and visable core wire within the temple which is embossed with the Oliver Peoples logo.
Oliver Peoples has teamed up with TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloIst for an amazing run of eyeglasses for Spring 2011.
The effort marks another notch in Oliver Peoples defining list of respected works and incorporates distinctive elements from each brand in the finish. Spanning five pairs of classic Oliver People silhouettes the glasses use mix of acetate and aged metals and come with an additional set of clip-on sun glasses. The line is slated for release in March of 2011.
We hope these frames make their way stateside somehow as they really are something else. (via Hypebeast)
California’s finest eyewear maker, Oliver Peoples, is reissuing one of the brand’s most iconic glasses. The O’Malley frames was worn by Christian Bale in American Psycho back in the eighties but now the shades are returning in a limited edition run. The round tortoiseshell design is timeless and grabbing a pair won’t be easy.
