Summer vibes with OG Icons

An array of artisan designs are releasing at Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses, including one model originally designed and worn by Audrey Hepburn

Just in, and just in time for the sunny spell! Oliver Goldsmith’s OG Icons collection has six new enticing designs for summer, oozing with the refined and glamorous spirit of the Goldsmith Icons – and its extraordinarily rich history. The OG Icons recreate the brand’s most historic and famous sunglasses worn by a host of celebrities in film, tv and fashion. Above: HEP is one of the new releases: the frame was originally designed for and worn by Audrey Hepburn in the 1960s. Recommended for women with smaller faces who wish to find a comfortable oversized frame with a beautiful timeless elegance, its oval shape is versatile while the colours include very cool nude tones of champagne and pink champagne or classic dark tortoise. The bevelled sculptural quality of this design and its neat vintage key hole bridge are special features.

A layered look: Ego at Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses – designed in 1971. 40 years on, in gorgeous tone-on-tone blush colours

Multi-sided geometric shapes in eyewear are a delightful, alternative shape this season; model Ego is a 1970s variation with a shapely architectural construction that layers a modified hexagon on top of a more squarish shape. If vintage colour is your thing, then this frame delivers with its stylish combinations of black with leopard and tortoise and sand while trendy nude tones of winterfell or pink champagne are feminine, chic and seasonally light.

The good-looking Kendal  sunglasses by Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses were first released in the 1970s – today, they represent the epitome of chic for men in a geometric shape with a linear top line and incredibly refined colours

The 1970s saw a new generation of creative eyewear shapes emerge for men. The Kendal at Oliver Goldsmith is representative of that look with its abstract angles and confident large shape, well adapted to the tastes of the design oriented modern man.
