Oliver Peoples is the true eyewear of celebrities. When you get a creative genius owning a boutique opticians on Hollywood Boulevard with A-lister celebrity clients the result is inevitable. In 1986 the desire to produce top quality stylish frames for the rich and famous led the Opticians owner Larry Leight to create his very own brand. He purchased an old range of vintage American-made eyewear and the production machines in a job lot. The receipt for the frames and machines were signed off by Oliver Peoples and hence the name was born. When Gill Opticians first came upon Oliver Peoples we were blown away but the incredible detail and high end finishing of each of the handmade frames.
