Roger Pope and Partners are proud to announce a new addition to our collection of luxury eyewear; the Oliver Peoples’ Cary Grant range eyewear. Inspired by the signature Cary Grant sunglasses & frames worn by the actor in the seminal film ‘North by Northwest’ the range beautifully captures the style and sophistication of the actor.
The Oliver Peoples Cary Grant range, designed in collaboration with the Cary Grant estate, is a worldwide first for both the brand and the estate and has never been done before.
“Cary wore glasses that were simple, sophisticated and of great quality. We realised that this was Oliver Peoples’ mantra,” says his wife Barbara Grant Jaynes, explaining why the Grant estate chose Oliver Peoples. Daughter Jennifer Grant adds, “Dad had great taste but above all it was his innate elegance. Elegance in his movement, his thought and the way he put himself together.”
A brand born of California, Oliver Peoples found the perfect inspiration in Cary Grant. Their love of Old Hollywood is known, as is the star's admiration for the coastal state. “Cary absolutely adored California,” Barbara says, “It was the cherry on top of the cake for this partnership.” Considering no one embodies elegance more than Cary Grant, the Oliver Peoples Cary Grant frames are a must have for anyone who aspires to classic Hollywood style with a modern twist.
From colour to form and material, Oliver Peoples delivers a loyal representation of Cary Grant’s sophisticated nature with a considered touch of modernity. Six clever colourways have been crafted to include a product-exclusive Grant tortoise acetate, and an 18k gold plated style for Oliver Peoples boutiques and online. On the temple tip of the frame there is a discreet Cary Grant monogram created from his personal stationery, and a custom case inspired by the colours of his suit worn in the film.
Available in both optical and sunglasses form, the Cary Grant Oliver Peoples range of glasses and frames is available at Roger Pope Opticians in Marylebone, London. For more information on the Cary Grant sunglasses and frames, contact our practice via 02079352124 or on firstname.lastname@example.org
