Oliver Peoples is the iconic brand of classic eyewear. The styles are timeless, with beautifully subtle colouring and design. From the immediately recognisable Gregory Peck model with flip up sun clip, to the more understated Riley, we have a full range of the collection to view now in store.
With misty blues and smoky purples, our three new optical and three new sun shapes each have their own unique features that take their inspiration from Fall/Winter 2016’s popular earth and sky tones.
The new sun styles use the acetate/metal combinations to showcase the season’s contemporary colors and textures.
For optical, the feminine square shape 278 pairs colorful acetates with a metal bridge and detailing. Colors like matte misty blue and a red-brown rust
feather bring new soft textures to a square style.

Revision of standards is needed to test sunglasses quality and establish safe limits for the lenses’ UV filters, according to research published in the open access journal Biomedical Engineering OnLine.
Exposure to the sun may deteriorate your sunglasses over time and the lenses may become lighter and so alter the category under which they are classified. It may also diminish the impact resistance of lenses (how ‘shatterproof’ the lens is). Current national and regional standards require that sunglasses provide levels of UV protection linked to the luminous transmittance, which decides the category of the lenses.
Lenses should provide adequate UV filters, because insufficient protection could lead to pathological modifications to the cornea and to the internal structure of the eye. This could cause edema (swelling of the eye which can distort vision), pterygium (growth of pink, fleshy tissue on the white of the eye that can interfere with vision), cataract (clouding of the lens of the eye) and retina damage.
