In 1986, brothers Larry and Dennis Leight won a collection of vintage American-made eyewear at an auction. The eyewear consisted of both glasses and sunglasses, that dated back from the 40s and 60s, produced by American optical companies such as Bausch and Lomb. The name Oliver Peoples was printed on the receipt and the brothers sold the eyewear in his name out of honour. In 1987, they decided to pursue their dream of designing their very own eyewear that would be vintage-inspired. The Oliver Peoples name stuck and thus a brand was born.
The Oliver Peoples DBS sunglasses are handcrafted with polished acetate which has been imported from Italy. Oliver Peoples are renown for using only the highest quality materials which are durable and light in weight. These sunglasses are comfortable for the wearer because of the chic keyhole shape bridge which sits perfectly on the nose. The keyhole shape is highly stylish and eye-catching in a tasteful manner.
The Oliver Peoples OV5206S sunglasses are retro-inspired like all of the brand’s designs. They have a masculine look but are unisex. This model is designed as a partner to the iconic Oliver Peoples best-selling Daddy B sunglasses. The lens shape is more square and has a three pin accent detailing on the front of the frames. The oversized glasses are currently very trendy and these glasses are available in different colours.
The OV5206S provide the utmost UV protection. The brand is one of the best in the optical world and for giving us the best visual aid. These sunglasses are both practical and a fashion accessory. The direction of eyewear changed globally, heading into the vintage look, as the retro style is worn by fashionistas and celebrities everywhere. Many Hollywood elites are fans of the brand and their eyewear has been spotted many times on the red carpet and in famous films. Each pair of glasses has a slight edge which makes them unique and recognized as an Oliver Peoples.
