Oliver Peoples has made a frame inspired by Gregory Peck as the attorney Atticus Finch in the classic movie “To Kill a Mockingbird” from 1962.
A round shape frame and key hole bridge. Love the horizontal plaques on the front and the temples, it really gives it the perfect look!
Earlier today we showed you a few true classics. There are many frames inspired by them but with a modern touch.

The Classics are a great investment and will look good for many occasions and for many years. If taken good care of, a classic sunframe may be passed down to the next generation. If you find one of these in your parent’s drawers, take great care of it.
These classics have been inspiration for many many sunglasses and still going strong.

Our favorite Graz teams up with Chronicles of Never to make these very dark, think sunglasses. They really make a statement!
Oliver Peoples and Japanese fashion designer Takahiro Miyashita teamed up for a collection called the SoloIst.
All frames are made of deadstock vintage materials, aged metal parts. And there are clip on sunglasses to match! These warm and dapper frames are currently only released in Japan, can be baught here.
MYKITA and Bernahrd Wilhelm teamed up once more for another sunglass called Violetta.
This Psychadelic frame is exactly what I’ve been looking for in a sunglass: large, fun gradient colors and LIGHT! They come in thsese two cool color combinations. I love the gold with the green/pink lenses, the green looks like eye shadow and the pink looks like rouge!

The mermaid in the picture is wearing Cutler And Gross 1029 in Nude Net. Looks like net stockhing or fishing net. Actually there is a layer of net in the acetate!
The frame has a great classic shape which allows a crazy color or fun pattern like this.
Superfun print on the 0690 from Cutler And Gross. Something for the stockbroker.
l.a. Eyeworks always has crazy shapes and colors. And now they have the craziest textures as well. It looks and feels like wood grain – feels very soft and natural – but its actual acetate!
Even other brands, such as Vasuma and Theo have made wood-inspired frames. What do You think? Bonocle loves it!
