Oliver Peoples was founded in 1987 with the opening of its first boutique in Los Angeles and subsequent launch of the original collection. From the beginning, Oliver Peoples had a passion for superior product, a distinctive culture rooted in California, and an obsession with service. These core values have remained at the foundation of the brand and endure today. Through an authentic and consistent voice, Oliver Peoples has never relied on a logo but instead on fostering relationships with likeminded consumers who appreciate and respect the brand's approach.
Each Oliver Peoples frame is hand crafted with careful attention to detail, sculpting and perfecting the materials to achieve a balanced and refined final product. The technically intricate process involves both state of the art machinery and the human touch, such as the individual hand-insertion of the genuine pins and plaques. Each frame is tumbled and polished, and finally hand adjusted, carefully referring back to the original drawing created in the design studio in West Hollywood.
The unique culture of Los Angeles - elements of fashion, film, art, music, and the Southern California lifestyle - remains at the core of the brand's DNA. This lifestyle inspires what we do and continues to have a global appeal.
