Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses
Updated versions of truly classic designs, each pair of Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses in the current collection is steeped in history.
In London, 1926, P. Oliver Goldsmith founded an eponymous, family-run eyewear company dedicated to high-end, hand-crafted, marketing-by-superb-design spectacles.
Without compromising this quintessentially British artisanal heritage, visionary family marketing and aesthetics soon saw the company pioneering the twentieth-century paradigm shift that transformed glasses from functional necessities into fashion-and-lifestyle essentials.
A procession of iconic British devotees – Audrey Hepburn immortalising the Manhattan in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, John Lennon rocking his ‘Olivers’, Michael Caine killing the Consul and Lady Gaga owning the Y-Not – was soon supplemented by an international array of celebrities, designers and expert craftspeople alike.
And, judging by the renaissance of ‘vintage’ and a prestigious Frame of the Year 2015 award for the Norum frame courtesy of Optrafair, Oliver Goldsmith’s iconic legacy looks set to evolve apace.
