Oliver Peoples launched a new exclusive collaboration with mytheresa.com, introducing the Kincaid Sun. The frame is a hand-molded, double-bridge, titanium pilot featuring genuine precious mirrored lenses. The lightweight sunglasses are available in two exclusive color options, hand selected by Leight and O’Shea, including gold with 18k white gold lenses and pewter with 24k yellow gold lenses. The temple end features a hint of enamel, which highlights the subtly embossed Oliver Peoples logo.

“When Larry and I started discussing the new mytheresa.com exclusive collaboration style in his office in West Hollywood, we simultaneously gravitated toward a Jim Morrison inspired photo he had on his desk,” says O’Shea. “We both love this LA 70’s vibe! Larry took the Kincaid pilot model, popped the lens and personally handcrafted a new squarer shape which added a fresh masculinity, one of fashion’s leading trends. The brand has just introduced precious gold lenses which couldn’t have been more perfect for this style. The most beautiful part of this collaboration is the bespoke authenticity which represents the Oliver Peoples’ way.”

“We wanted to create something really special,” says Leight of the collaboration. “It feels like the perfect way to interpret the mirrored trend in eyewear right now in a luxurious and distinctive way. “

A short film documents the creative design process and gives a behind-the-scenes look into O’Shea’s Los Angeles visit. The Oliver Peoples for mytheresa.com collaboration sunglasses is available for purchase exclusively on mytheresa.com. AMAZING!
