Oliver Peoples Upgraded Their Sunglasses by Using Gold

In an attempt to create the perfect shades for summer, Oliver Peoples and MyTheresa worked together to create a luxurious take on eye-protection-as-usual. The result: seventies-inspired, hand-molded, double-bridge, titanium aviators with mirrored lenses, which come with 18-karat white-gold lenses or 24-karat yellow-gold ones (they go on sale today, and will cost about as much as you expect). Watch the exclusive video above too see Justin O’Shea, MyTheresa’s buying director, and Larry Leight, Oliver Peoples’s founder and creative director, hash out their inspirations and design ideas in sunny Los Angeles, where they tease us East Coasters with the sight of palm trees swaying in the background.
