Oliver Peoples eyewear founder and chief designer Larry Leight is giving us a compelling reason to look back this spring. As an homage to the label’s debut 1987 collection, Leight has released a retrospective line featuring limited-edition vintage frames made from his original models. The 505, one of the first optical frames to offer a clip-on sunglass attachment, is available in several colors, as well as the 1955, MP-2, and the O’Malley, which was inspired by former LA Dodgers president Peter O’Malley.
“The DC man appreciates subtle, yet distinctive details that, upon closer inspection, set him apart from the rest. Oliver Peoples’s Vintage collection is perfect because it is geared toward representing the wearer’s style, and not overtaking it,” says Georgetown Optician’s Pierce Voorthuis. “The O’Malley is my favorite pair. It’s clean and understated, but with a retro charm that won’t ever feel dated.” Georgetown Optician, 1307 Wisconsin Ave. NW, 202-337-8237
