Oliver Peoples Sunglasses

In 1988 a customer of mine came in to my store in Soho, and told me about a great range of new glasses called Oliver Peoples. I rang the company in Los Angeles and the phone was answered by Larry Leight, the chief honcho. When I asked if they had a rep in the UK, he burst out laughing – he’d only recently started wholesaling and hadn’t considered foreign distribution. I convinced him to sell me twenty frames, which I had to collect in New York as he hadn't a clue how to send them to England.

A week or so later, I called him and asked for a repeat order. The rest, as they say...

Now, we're one of only a handful of official Oliver Peoples internet retailers. (Which means that we know what we're doing. And do it well).
