Feast Your Eyes on Oliver Peoples' Summer 2012 Collection

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

What do Zooey Deschanel, Kristen Stewart, Robert Downey Jr. and Rooney Mara all have in common? Besides being screen-stealing brunettes, they're all high-flying fans of Oliver Peoples. Co-founded in 1987 by native Angeleno Larry Leight, the iconic eyewear house is known for producing classically cool specs that transcend trends, which is why top celebrities have been rocking these frames for decades. Hell, even Andy Warhol was a fan.

Given that Oliver Peoples is having a major moment right now (they just unveiled an enchanting short film in coordination with their snazzy redesigned website), we had to swing by their HQ in West Hollywood to see their latest offerings in the flesh. After marveling over the summer 2012 campaign images that cleverly lined the office, we beelined to the collection, which is inspired by academia and cinema.

View the gallery for our favorite styles (with pricing), shop it all here, then watch the Lisa Eisner-directed campaign film starring the daughter of Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson here.
