Founded in West Hollywood in 1986 by opticians and brothers Dennis and Larry Leight, Oliver Peoples was built upon a vision "to design an original and authentic collection of eyewear, utilize innovative marketing strategies, and create a unique retail experience in [their] own gallery" states Larry Leight, founder and creative director.
The brothers set an ambitious objective: "to be the most prestigious and culturally distinctive eyewear brand in the world." And this, they have accomplished. Worn by many of the most influential people in the entertainment industry, Oliver Peoples prides itself on confederating with and appealing to celebrated tastemakers. Their success could be attributed to their uncompromising allegiance to distinctive, timeless, and sometimes vintage style, regardless of trends, fads, and flavors of the month. When, in the late 80's, futuristic styles and geometric shapes dominated the eyewear scene, Peoples inaugurated a retro collection inspired from 1940's and 60's eyewear.
"Their designs were based on a find of vintage eyewear from that time period, and they have maintained that old world aesthetic. The quality of the eyewear is outstanding, using plastics and metals that will withstand the test of time" stated Dr. Karen Allen.
Dr. Karen Allen, of Eyecare & Eyewear of Carrollton, strives to carry sought-after designer frames, compiling a complete combination of urbanity and utility in their eyewear. She and colleague, Dr. Mary Anne Peck, are pleased to announce the addition of Oliver Peoples to their collections.
