Oliver Peoples teams up with TAKAHIROMIYAHITA TheSolo1st. for a new eyewear collection. We're big fans of Japanese designer, Takahiro Miyashita of Number (N)ine fame, so it's even more exciting to check out this new Resort/Spring 2012 collection.
Turns out that the Oliver Peoples team scoured for original pieces in old factories and warehouses, then replicated techniques with tools that Oliver Peoples used years ago when originals could not be located. Miyashita then put the finishing touches and fused parts of the original. A redux of vintage and modern masterpiece.
The collection consists of the Solo1st Teardrop which features an aviator shape and double bridge metal sunglass and the Solo1st Round which offers a blend of antique gold and silver in round frames. Buy the collection now at Colette, $485.
