Now a mainstay of the optical world, Oliver Peoples began as a humble Los Angeles boutique with an estate collection of retro frames. After developing a rabid following for their unique look, Oliver Peoples started manufacturing a range of forward-looking frames that retained the best parts of the past. The Oliver Peoples Sunglasses featured on this drop- the San Luis, the Cabrillo, and the Piedra- come in the brand’s signature style with solid construction.
The two most American frame designs are the Wayfarer and the Aviator, so if you’re looking for a pinch of ocular patriotism, you’re in the right place. The two Wayfarer-inspired styles, the San Luis and the Cabrillo, feature solid acetate frames with metal temple tips, tapered for a more comfortable fit behind your ears. They both come with polarized lenses and are available in a variety of colors. Taking cues from their home state, the San Luis was named after the California coastal town, San Luis Obispo, and the Cabrillo pays homage to the Portuguese explorer who landed in California in 1542.
The other featured style, the Piedra, is a double bridged Aviator. Made with spotted acetate temples, tapered metal temple tips, and polarized lenses, the Piedra also comes in a variety of colors. Its name comes from Piedra stone, the smooth rock used throughout Southern Californian businesses and residences. Like its namesake, the Piedra is equally suited for taking care of business or relaxing at home. On this drop, you have your pick of the San Luis, Cabrillo, or Piedra. Choose your color at checkout.
