Sophistication and style are at the core of Oliver Peoples’s identity in the world of high fashion. It comes as no surprise, then, that the craftsmanship involved in creating these styles – lux in design and sleek in personality – is of the highest importance. The luxury eyewear brand’s latest capsule collection, Takumi, offers credit to that very artistry that makes its products so memorable by highlighting its Japanese heritage.

In Japanese, the word “Takumi” translates to “artisan.” The capsule collection captures the very essence of this word, creating Japanese titanium eyeglasses and sunglasses with subtle yet striking details and sophisticated designs. Since quality has always been at the forefront of the Oliver Peoples brand, this collection is no exception to the fine, hand-crafted features and minimalist aesthetics that Japanese artisans know so well.

The capsule collection consists of two optical styles, one sunglass, and a sunglass clip, with custom lenses in vintage-inspired colors that compliment the frames. The timeless designs provide a modern edge to a classic look while incorporating memorable Japanese visuals as an homage to the eyewear’s origins in craftsmanship. Each style also sports custom filigree craftily pressed into titanium, as well as a multi-dimensional pattern of raised diamonds and dots.

The dreamy, visually-magnificent campaign video was captured at the Frank Lloyd Wright’s Clinton Walker House in Carmel, California, another nod to Japanese design and the aesthetics of Japanese architecture.

Starting July 29, the Takumi collection will be available for purchase exclusively at Oliver Peoples boutiques (currently offering private shopping appointments in accordance with CDC guidelines) and at Oliverpeoples.com. The collection will retail for $198-$625.
