Introducing the Brunello Cucinelli x Oliver Peoples Summer 2022 collection. Set in the iconic film landmark known as the Bradbury Building, a suspenseful scene transpires.
In addition to the site’s sterling cinematic reputation, its ornate iron interiors feel directly connected to Oliver Peoples and Brunello Cucinelli—aligning with the former’s custom filigree corewire and the latter’s detailed crest and use of Solomeo’s medieval skyline. This further emphasizes that it’s an apt setting to honor the latest collection, which introduces four new designs: Capannelle, Gerardo, Eduardo, and Jep.
Each expressive style in this collection has been made in Italy and incorporates collaboration exclusive details. Capannelle’s retro aesthetic nods to frames from the Golden Age of Hollywood, with a square lens shape and the pairing of acetate and metal detailing on the bridge and eyewire. It’s offered with either sun or blue light filter lenses. Crafted with a thin acetate front and precisely proportioned metal temples, Gerardo’s sophisticated design complements all face shapes.
Featuring a modern take on the classic panto lens shape, Eduardo incorporates a deep lens and distinct keyhole bridge. In contrast, the vintage-inspired Jep invokes a thick acetate to make a bold impression. Both of these options offer a matching clip-accessory detail as well. A stand-out from the inaugural collaboration, Filu’ returns in a sustainably sourced, genuine horn iteration. Jep is also available in this ultra-premium material. Finally, the popular Oliver Sun and its timeless square acetate frame returns in five new exclusive Brunello Cucinelli colorways.
The second iteration of #BCxOP pays homage to the collection’s emphasis on storytelling, craftsmanship and timeless style.
