We met the very dapper Jordan Eady at The Power Plant’s annual PowerBall party, where he dressed up his look with these “Emerson” frames from Oliver Peoples. These retro-shaped frames totally suit Jordan’s “old-fashioned” charm, and lend a sartorial flair to his outfit. Hand-crafted in lightweight plastic, these frames feature a vintage keyhole bridge and pin-detailing. The “Cocobolo” colour, meantime, is a lighter, cleaner take on traditional tortoiseshell.
Check out the “Emerson” frames in person at the upcoming Karir Eyewear x Oliver Peoples Shop-in-Shop, taking place June 13-22 at Karir Eyewear’s Yorkville location in Toronto. And don’t forget to enter our contest to win a pair of Oliver Peoples glasses (up to a $500 value!) for yourself, courtesy of The Spectacled and Karir Eyewear.
Liem looks great in these Oliver Peoples “NDG” frames (part of the brand’s collaboration with hip New York culture hub/clothing label Nom de Guerre). Though he rotates between four pairs of prescription glasses, Liem says he likes these thin, polished “Noir” frames because of the way they fit his face so well. We totally agree!
The frames were inspired by New York’s art and fashion scene and we love how the slimmer profile gives off that “artsy” vibe without being over-the-top, while the square frame adds a retro influence and dapper finishing touch. Though they may be part of an underground collaboration (literally, as the NDG flagship is housed in a bunker-type showroom near SoHo), these glasses work well on almost any face shape and gender, and are definitely worth trying on.
Wayne Petti, from Canadian folk-rock band Cuff The Duke, has been wearing glasses since he was 12 years old. Fittingly, the two people that inspired his eyewear choices were musicians: John Lennon and Buddy Holly. In fact, Wayne’s first pair were circular frames from the John Lennon collection (Interesting eyewear fact: Wayne’s grandfather was an optometrist so he had a box full of frames from the 1960s growing up).
Bob Beckerman is the fashion-forward father to Beckerman Bite Plate girls, Caillianne, Samantha and Chloe. He showed off his sartorial flair in these “Gregory Peck” frames from Oliver Peoples. The retro design was inspired by the style worn by Peck as Atticus Finch, in the classic film, To Kill A Mockingbird. It features a black and dark tortoiseshell gradient, along with an exaggerated keyhole bridge. Beckerman actually purchased these as sunglasses, but had them changed into prescription frames. This collection was designed to coincide with the 50th anniversary of the release of the novel, which was written by Harper Lee in 1960.
There was no way you could miss Nicolle Anderson outside Lincoln Center during the recent New York Fashion Week. Her glasses from Oliver Peoples‘ vintage collection featured some serious cat eye, while also giving off a futuristic vibe. A product developer for Revlon, Nicolle’s been wearing glasses for more than 15 years and it’s clear she’s not afraid to have fun with it.
