Oliver Goldsmith has been a family-run business for over 80 years. Founded in 1926 by P. Oliver Goldsmith, the world of spectacles was about to be revolutionised. Sunglasses gained high profile status during the mid-fifties and a selection of unusual designs started to appear. OG’s were becoming not only a means of protecting eyes from the sun, but also a fashion statement. Dress designers approached Goldsmith to create frames that would compliment their seasonal collections.
First to see sunglasses as fashion accessories, first to make sunspecs, first to make ‘winter sunglasses’…..first to work alongside fashion houses to create one-off pieces for the catwalks, first to appear in Vogue and Queen, and first to be endorsed by celebrities and Royals. OG pioneered a whole new concept. Eyewear. From Bamboo frames to butterflies, tennis racquets to TV Screens, all overtly striking. All signature OG.
