The Oliver Peoples x KHAITE Collaboration - 1969C Sunglasses

To create a collection of luxury sunglasses that blends timeless style with contemporary sensibility, Oliver Peoples has come together with KHAITE, a luxury women's ready-to-wear and accessories brand that reimagines classic American sportswear for the 21st century. Oliver Peoples and KHAITE glasses were launched on the KHAITE Fall/Winter 2023 runway at New York Fashion week.

Inspired by vintage silhouettes, this collection showcases the shared dedication of both brands to distinctive and enduring design, utilizing only the finest materials and unequaled craftsmanship. The main focus of the campaign is on balancing opposing elements, such as softness and strength, femininity and masculinity, fluidity and structure —while embodying a signature sensuality and ease. The collection of Oliver Peoples x KHAITE sunglasses showcases these dualities through optical illusions: reflections in the lenses mirror the explorations of our own identities, the ways of seeing oneself and others.

“We’ve infused our point of view through transformative details—nuances of form, fit, and color that make each pair uniquely KHAITE—all made possible by the exceptional materials and fabrication of Oliver Peoples. It’s a true collaboration.”

- Catherine Holstein, founder and creative director of KHAITE.

The new collection introduces three frame styles: the 1969C, the 1971C, and the 1983C, all handmade in Italy. The details dedicated to the collaboration are instantly recognizable along the temples, where a first-of-its-kind double embedding process exposes custom core wire inspired by the streamlined hardware of KHAITE handbags. Tipped with alternating Oliver Peoples and KHAITE logos, the temples also feature dual pins that improve the strength and flexibility of the sunglasses. Each of the three styles debuts in five color combinations. Versatile neutral hues of brown, black, and buff are joined by statement hues like translucent red and optic white.
