Steven’s style icon is Woody Harrelson, and he recalled seeing Woody in a similar pair of glasses in the 80s. So when he spotted these “Linus Cloisonné” frames from Oliver Peoples, he knew he had to have them.
This is a pair of vintage-inspired glasses that Oliver Peoples introduced for their 20th anniversary. Designer Larry Leight went through the company’s extensive archives to find this classic round silhouette, then took the sketches to Japan, where the frames were produced with a feather-light antique gold titanium. The frames are coated with a laminated acetate in tortoise, then combined with tortoise crystal polished acetate temples. A recessed bridge and nose pads add comfort, while the only mark of branding is a tiny Oliver Peoples logo embossed on the arms. Steven liked that the glasses are lightweight and comfortable; we like that they work equally as well on Steven in 2013, as they did on Woody Harrelson in the 1980s!
