Oliver Peoples x Public School Available Now

World renowned eyewear brand Oliver Peoples has partnered with Public School, a duo of highly regarded, CFDA Award Winning designers, on a limited edition sunglass collaboration.

The Oliver Peoples x Public School collaboration features a sunglass model which, according to the designers, “naturally complements the aesthetic of Public School”, while taking inspiration from classic Oliver Peoples’ designs as well.  The frame is a bold acetate style with a slightly sporty aesthetic while maintaining a fashion edge.

A long, linear metal detail runs from the temples and through the bridge, creating an illusion of one connected piece.  The sunglasses come in 3 colourways which coincide with Public School’s predominantly black palette.  These include two black versions – matte black with midnight express lenses and shiny black with obsidian mirror lenses, both polarized – as well as a neutral grey frame with opal flash electric lenses.

Limited Quantities.

This collaboration is currently available via direct phone and email orders only.  For additional information on ordering your pair, please Contact Us today!
