Oliver Peoples was founded in 1987 with the opening of its first boutique in the heart of West Hollywood, California and subsequent launch of the original designs. The frames were inspired by an estate collection of vintage American made eyewear purchased by the Founders of the brand in the late 1980s. This vintage aesthetic, along with the unique culture of Los Angeles - elements of fashion, film, art, music, and the Southern California lifestyle - remain at the core of the brand’s DNA and serves as inspiration for designs with global appeal. Oliver Peoples eyewear is hand-crafted of the finest quality materials, with a focus on exclusive product details and superior lens technology. Exclusively available at the finest optical retailers, department stores, and specialty boutiques around the world, Oliver Peoples has built a loyal following of culturally distinctive, progressive and influential tastemakers. The company currently has distribution in more than 60 countries worldwide and operates 30 retail stores with new openings in Dallas, Rome, Miami, Madrid, and Hong Kong.
