Bringing a taste of cachet and culture to the Windy City, the luxury eyewear brand Oliver Peoples who just opened their doors in the Chi-town's prestigious Gold Coast just in time to usher in summer is selling limited editions just for.
In celebration of the boutique opening, Oliver Peoples has created an exclusive, limited edition aviator sunglass designed specifically to embody the classic Windy City Style. The “Oliver Peoples ? Chicago” (aka) Benedict aviator style features 24k gold, polarized glass lenses with a custom stamp. The limited edition style, which retails for $595, will come with a custom case and cloth and will be available exclusively at the Chicago boutique.
As previously noted, the boutique is stocked with a myriad of hand crafted eyeglass frames and sunglasses from the three brands that fall within Oliver Peoples' portfolio - Oliver Peoples Eyewear, Paul Smith Spectacles, and Mosley Tribes. Gold coasters and touristas may take advantage of the super sexy onsite optician who can provide consultations, custom frame fittings, and prescription services.
