OLIVER PEOPLES 
GREGORY PECK FRAMES


I have been waiting since February to introduce these Oliver Peoples Gregory Peck frames to you as I wore the tan tortoise shell ones at London Fashion Week for the duration, snapped in The Guardian and Fashion 156, below.  



Released to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the film 'To Kill a Mockingbird', these frames are named after the actor who's portrayal of lead character Atticus Finch made the Hollywood star a style icon. 








My obsession admiration for the brand, headed by Larry Leight, has grown steadily over the past year or so, after seeing the store in Los Angeles on Sunset Boulevard. These frames come as the film celebrates said anniversary and culture looks towards greats such as Peck for style inspiration. Larry and his brother Dennis, co-founder of the eyewear label, were approached by Anthony Peck, son of Gregory and long time Oliver Peoples customer, to re-create the iconic style frames - which are very on trend for the coming season. The book was written in 1960 by Harper Lee, wining the Pulitzer Prize, but it was Peck's portrayal of the lawyer that captured the hearts of the literary and film pack. 




The frames come in these four colours and are made from acetate, and like most of the Oliver Peoples frames, are probably made in Japan. Retailing at £190 from 36 Opticians in London and from oliverpeoples.com as well as Barney's in the USA - proceeds received by the Peck family for the project being donated to the Los Angeles City Library. 

What a fitting donation for a superb and timeless frame.
