Oliver Peoples recently unveiled its newest line of glasses, in collaboration with Cary Grant’s estate. This release marked the first time that Grant’s likeness had been offered in partnership with a brand, an exciting prospect for both parties involved. Inspired by the shades donned by Grant in “North by Northwest”, the glasses were launched in style, with a star-studded, intimate dinner in Los Angeles. Hosted at the Tower Bar in West Hollywood, Rocco Basilico and Giampiero Tagliaferri, Oliver People’s CEO and Chief Creative & Marketing Director, ushered in a three-course, seated dinner with many famous friends of the brand, like Mahershala Ali, Abigail Spencer, Ethan Beck and Lucky Blue Smith. Jennifer and Barbara Grant Jaynes, direct relatives of Cary, were the two guests of honors for the night. Equipped with a backdrop reminiscent of the train car in “North by Northwest” and live music from DJ Myles Hendrick, all attendees had a great time celebrating the new glasses.
