After a long, twenty-year history of eyewear evolution and refinery, Founder and Chief Designer Larry Leight has decided the time is right for a special re-release of the three styles that helped define Oliver Peoples as a brand. To be called Oliver Peoples Vintage, the collection consists of three frames all known by their original names: The O’Malley, the 1955, and the OP 505. In efforts to retain the same craftsmanship and integrity of the original, Leight reached out to the original Japanese factory to reproduce this special batch of optics.
On another note, one can observe that Oliver Peoples incorporated three iconic modern literary works into the Vintage photoshoot, Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas, American Psycho, and Lolita. Not that they have anything to do with the collection, but it’s still ridiculously cool and noteworthy nonetheless.
