Los Angeles, California – The Oliver Peoples Resort 2020 Collection presents a variety of frames fit for every look, with inspiration taken from the brand’s extensive archive and 1970’s styling aesthetic. Rimless sunglasses, thin oversized acetates, and bold frames offer a wide range of styles that enhance the Oliver Peoples assortment.
The Resort 2020 Collection expands the brand’s partnership with American fashion house The Row, adding three new styles to the sun offering – Hightree, Brooktree, and Georgica. These new designs perfectly reflect the effortless design sensibility and understated elegance of both brands. Made in Japan, the Hightree is a unique titanium sunglass. The classic lens shape is accentuated with a bold top bar, giving this style an edgy look and feel. Inspired by the sunglasses frequently worn by style icon Jacqueline Kennedy, Brooktree is a glamorous women’s oversized design, offering a classic and timeless frame. Inspired by the 1960’s styling, Georgica is a bold women’s sunglass in an upswept, oversized cat-eye aesthetic. The collaboration also introduces iconic styles, the Brownstone 2 and Board Meeting 2, offered in optical for the first time.
The sunglass category introduces four new sun styles- Rikson, Jaye, Keenan, and Lachman Sun. Made in Japan, Rikson is a teardrop sunglass with a modern streamlined design, highlighted with the brand’s custom filigree pattern. The Jaye is the perfect combination of a classic and modern, available in iconic Oliver Peoples colors that showcase the bold acetate and shallow lenses. The Keenan is a sophisticated, oversized, and masculine sunglass offered in two sizes. A quintessential Oliver Peoples design, the Lachman Sun is a unisex sunglass featuring strong angles and glass lenses for a distinctive look.
This season, the optical collection focuses on strong acetate designs and introduces three new styles- Lachman, Emerson, and Osten. A compliment to the Lachman Sun, the Lachman is a unisex optical frame offered in classic acetate colors. A re-launched design from the archive, the Emerson is an iconic Oliver Peoples vintage design. For a classic look, the Osten is an essential oversized rectangular frame.
To complete the eyewear offering, the collection launches three clip-on lens options – MP-2 Clip, O’Malley Clip, and Lachman Clip. An integral part of the Oliver Peoples heritage, the brand has always created clips to compliment iconic optical designs. These unique accessories enhance the frame for a dashing vintage appeal.
