In 1987, Larry Leight opened his first luxury eyewear boutique in West Hollywood. Inspired by the culture of Southern California and an estate collection of eyewear purchased by the founders, the first collection departed from the trends of the late 80’s.
Oliver Peoples quickly attracted attention with its vintage aesthetic, intellectual appeal, subtle detail and high-quality materials. Intentionally discreet branding appeals to customers who seek to compliment their own unique style. Oliver Peoples frames are handcrafted in limited quantities and continue to uphold their retro-inspired aesthetic and commitment to quality
In early 2016, the eyewear label partnered with Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen's highly successful fashion label The Row to produce six styles of sunshades and spectacles. All sunglasses are fitted with mineral-glass color lenses. Available as both optical and sunglass options, the collection – aptly dubbed The Row x Oliver Peoples – represents subtle femininity and timeless elegance.
