Le Corbusier

Le Corbusier, pseudonym for Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, the famous French-Swiss architect and artist known for contibuting to what is called “Modern Architecture”. He was very loyal to one type of frame, in fact that type of glasses are called Le Corbusier or “Architect frames”.

This type of frame has lots of character, is bold and simple. A great feature is that even strong prescriptions look great in a round think frame like this. Frames inspired by the Le Corbusier frame:

Oliver Peoples Vintage

Finally, I had the pleasure to see the whole Oliver Peoples Vintage collection in real life. As we’ve been mentioning before it’s a limited edition collection containing 3 classic models: OP-505, Oliver Peoples very first frame, O’Malley, the famous frame worn by Christian Bale in the movie “American Psycho”,  and OP-1955, with it’s significant plastic temple in another color than the front.

I really love the whole vintage concept, that even the spectacle cases, the bags and the product sheets are specifically designed for this limited edition collection. This gives the whole collection a genuine feeling of exclusivity!
