Oliver Peoples Vintage - Take a Journey Back in Time with Spectacle!

Something has been catching the eyes of shoppers enjoying the warm weather up and down Yonge Street - Look a little closer and you'll find another Spectacle Exclusive collection that has made it's way uptown.

Spectacle is proud to bring you the Oliver Peoples Vintage Collection, a showcase of frames celebrating the twenty year legacy of one of the most influential eyewear companies in the world.

This collection includes re-issues of some of the first frames released by the L.A. Based eyewear company and re-affirms their commitment to design and style. Designer and founder of Oliver Peoples, Larry Leight explains:

"Among these treasures are some of my favorites, including the first style introduced in the Oliver Peoples 1987 debut collection the OP-505. The 505 features filigreed antique metal temple and bridge detailing."

"Others were the OP-1955, a unique style recognized for its contrasting frame front and temple colours and the O'Malley, inspired by former L.A. Dodgers President Peter O'Malley which is one of the most recognizable frames in Oliver Peoples History."

"Convinced that interest in these classic styles is just as strong today as it was twenty years ago, I wanted to make some available to select customers. Since very few original pieces exist, and because it is essential that the same attention to detail, craftsmanship and the integrity of the original styles be retained, I reached out to the same Japanese factory to reproduce a limited quantity."

Thanks Larry, a passion for style and attention to detail is why Spectacle Loves Oliver Peoples and why we invite you to pay us a visit to see these limited edition pieces while you can!

We'll always strive to bring our clients the most exclusive collections in the world and provide an unparalleled selection of styles because Spectacle Loves You!
