* Inspired by glasses worn by Gregory Peck in To Kill a Mockingbird
* UV400 photochromic lenses adapt to light for optimal shade all day long
* Handcrafted in Italy, the jet black frame gracefully melds into tortoiseshell
Gregory Peck was the epitome of Hollywood cool back in the day, and he was at the height of his popularity in his most iconic role as Atticus Finch in the movie version of To Kill a Mockingbird. Now, California-based eyewear company, Oliver Peoples is releasing its latest tribute to the actor, with these “Peck” black and tortoise sunglasses.
Made in collaboration with the Peck estate, these shades are inspired by the eyeglasses worn by Peck in the film, and maintain the signature rounded shape with an exaggerated keyhole bridge for a handsome, retro look. Modern touches include advanced lens technology, durable hand-crafted acetate, hand-laid functional plaques that adhere the glass to the frame and sturdy three-barrel hinges, which help maintain the strength and integrity of the sunglasses.
These bespoke sunglasses are handcrafted in Italy out of layers of custom designed acetate, so the unique gradient fades from midnight black to a tortoiseshell pattern, which varies slightly on each individual frame. The mark of distinction is the discreet Oliver Peoples logo that is laminated on the temples.
Oliver Peoples eyewear has a sophisticated, intellectual aesthetic. The West Hollywood-based brand is known for its obsession with creating superior frames that is the result of artisans and highly-trained technicians working together to handcraft each and every frame.
For the “Gregory Peck” line, Oliver Peoples has captured the essence of silver screen magic in a way that at once conveys iconic sophistication and swagger – made for a man, but you can argue (and win) the case they look great on women, too.
