Los Angeles, CA – This season Oliver Peoples and The Row introduces a bold and edgy collection of sunglasses in rich acetates and thin titanium metal. The results perfectly reflect the effortless design sensibility and understated elegance of both brands. The collection includes four new sun styles Aero LA, Victory LA, BA CC, and LA CC. Three of the four designs are unisex, which aligns with The Rows recent launch of menswear.
Aero LA and Victory LA are new interpretations of two of Oliver Peoples most iconic sunglasses “Aero” and “Victory”. Originally launched in 1997 and 2001, both frames quickly became sought out staple pieces amongst the Hollywood elites. Celebrities such as Jennifer Aniston, Brad Pitt, Meg Ryan, Angelina Jolie, and John Stamos were among the many who repeatedly wore the frames. Aero LA and Victory LA include The Row’s now recognizable linear engraving in titanium on the eyewire, endpiece, and temples as well as vivid-colored custom glass lenses.
BA CC and LA CC are two new distinctively sophisticated acetate frames. Both styles include linear engraving on a custom plaque and embedded core wire. BA CC is a classic oversized square lens shape which combines richly hued-acetates and vibrant glass lenses for an effortlessly cool look. LA CC is a shallow women’s design which plays with an unconventional scale for an assured aesthetic creating a mod yet retro design.
To complete the collaboration, Oliver Peoples and The Row will release new color additions of famed styles After Midnight, Brownstone 2, and Board Meeting 2 from the previous collection. After Midnight, a round 80’s inspired sunglass fashioned after the late nights in New York and styling of the era. This style quickly became one of the most recognized styles of the collaboration. Brownstone 2, a classic Panto design made of ultra-chic titanium featuring linear engraving. Board Meeting 2, a vintage inspired design made of titanium and base glass lenses for a progressive touch.
