We photographed actress Casey LaBow at Governor’s Ball in New York, wearing these vintage Oliver Peoples sunglasses. Part of Oliver Peoples’ “Linus” collection, this frame is notable for its unique bridge, which reminded Casey of an old movie theatre curtain. As an actress, that quirky design touch “spoke to her” and made her fall in love with these glasses immediately!
Made in Japan, these frames are hand-crafted from antique gold alloy, with dark green lenses that almost appear black from certain angles. The original frame was part of Oliver Peoples’ extensive archive of vintage glasses, which founder Larry Leight has been collecting and amassing for decades.
