The Soloist x Oliver Peoples 4

I recently had the pleasure of visiting the Oliver Peoples showroom in soho to check out their upcoming designs. What excited me the most was the forth collaboration between Takahiro Miyashita of The Soloist. Since the sub-lines intial launch, Oliver Peoples has been steadily cranking out beautiful eyeglasses that would be perfect to pair with clothes by the Soloist.

This time around the designs are simple but bold. The voluminous shape of the frames was created by shearing a pressed sheet of acetate to 12mm thick at the hinge, resulting in the frame front appearing to flow backward.  The distinctive styles boast sharp-edged beveling of varied widths along the frame front and temples.

The icing on the cake is the special cleaning cloth that comes with each pair, which is designed with the Soloist paisley bandana pattern. All models should be available now at select Oliver Peoples retailers.

Special thanks to Jon Carlo for inviting me.
