Oliver Peoples’ mission statement has always been to be the most prestigious and culturally distinctive eyewear brand in the world. That’s what the brand lives by. That’s what drives it every day. And that’s the brand’s inspiration. When Larry Leight, the founder and creative director of Oliver Peoples Eyewear, and his team were developing the concept of the brand, they wanted to design an innovative line of eyewear that would be reflective of Los Angeles.
