Oliver Peoples Cary Grant Collection

Apr 3, 2019

Category: Style

Cary Grant’s name might not ring a bell for many modern-day folks, but in the ‘50s and ‘60s, he was a bonafide cultural icon. As one of the most prolific and best-dressed actors of the period, he would help to define what was perhaps the greatest era of men’s style — and now, the iconic eyewear manufacturer Oliver Peoples has decided to reintroduce Grant’s classic tortoiseshell frames for sunglasses and eyeglasses.

The “Cary Grant” collection references the actor’s trademark style — and more specifically, the iconic eyewear that he donned in 1959’s North By Northwest. As a New York City executive, Grant’s style was undeniably refined, but his tortoiseshell glasses stole the show with their simplistic aesthetics and features. Oliver Peoples’ reintroduction of the famed accessory is the first-ever collaboration with the Grant Estate, which has worked alongside the company to ensure accuracy and legitimacy. The glasses are available in a variety of different colors and come with a Cary Grant monogram scrawled on the temple tip. And if you think that the eyewear manufacturer didn’t show any love for the actor’s iconic French & Stanbury suit, think again — each pair of specially-crafted shades and frames suited for prescriptions lenses will come with a custom case inspired by the character’s favorite suit in the film.
