Oliver Peoples Goes For Gold With MyTheresa.com Collaborative Sunglasses Range

18 July 2013 by

The sun looks like it's here to stay! What better time for the launch of a new sunglass range. Today eyewear experts Oliver Peoples have unveiled an exclusive collaboration with online retailer mytheresa.com.

The collection, which went on sale this morning, features a hand-molded, double-bridge, titanium pilot with genuine precious mirrored lenses. The shades, available in two exclusive colour options - hand picked by Oliver Peoples Founder and Creative Director Larry Leight and mytheresa.com Buying Director Justin O’Shea - include gold with 18k white gold lenses, and pewter with 24k yellow gold lenses. Three cheers for shades which match the sunshine!

O'Shea revealed: "When Larry and I started discussing the new mytheresa.com exclusive collaboration style in his office in West Hollywood, we simultaneously gravitated toward a Jim Morrison inspired photo he had on his desk. We both love this LA 70s' vibe".

"Larry took the Kincaid pilot model, popped the lens and personally handcrafted a new squarer shape, which added a fresh masculinity, one of fashion's  leading trends. The brand has just introduced precious gold lenses, which couldn't have been more perfect for this style," he continued.

"The most beautiful part of this collaboration is the bespoke authenticity, which represents the Oliver Peoples way."

The sun won't be the only thing shining when you've got these bad boys on!
