Oliver Goldsmith was one of the biggest names in eyewear in the 1960s – and now the company is back – offering 1960s-style sunglasses.
Oi Polloi has a good selection of the designer shades, with our pick being the Oliver Goldsmith Fred (above top) and the Oliver Goldsmith renzo (above lower). The Fred shape is based on the Peter Sellers frame, originally created in 1964. They are hand made in Japan using Italian cotton acetate, Carl Zeiss lenses and hypoallergenic hinges, sold with a hardcase, cloth bag and box for £189.99.
The Oliver Goldsmith Renzo shape is based on the frame worn by Michael Caine in the Ipcress File, originally created in 1967. A two tone frame, again hand made in Japan using Italian cotton acetate, Carl Zeiss lenses and hypoallergenic hinges and like the Fred, sold with hardcase, cloth bag and box. A pair will cost you £174.99.
