Original Vintage from Oliver Peoples

It must be summer. Grey clouds are creeping their way across the country, but our one weekend of tantalising heat (remember? It was a few weeks ago) still has us blindly clamouring for our shorts, short-sleeved shirts (yes, really) and, of course, our sunglasses.

Of the nine frames on offer, the 60s inspired MP-2 and O’Malley specs are our undisputed favourites. Available in a range of rare colours, including sky blue, spearmint green and rose brown, The Original Vintage Circa 1987 Collection is to be sold exclusively in Adam Simmonds of Primrose Hill, with prices starting at £295.
