Oliver Peoples is pleased to announce a collaborative effort with fellow Los Angeles-based luxury label, Parabellum. The limited edition collaboration blends iconic Oliver Peoples eyewear design with the unique, American-made Bison Leather accessories produced by Parabellum. Sharing a commitment to craftsmanship, quality, and exceptional materials, the partnership is a natural fit.
Handcrafted in Southern California, Parabellum bags, belts, and cases are made from the finest Leather in the world and are constructed using old world artisan techniques. Parabellum utilizes a special type of deeply textured, Free Range American Bison Leather that is domestically raised and tanned. As no two Bison hides are the same, no two Parabellum products are exactly alike; while all are exquisite, each is individual. The brand is best known for contrasting the rugged beauty and heritage of its Bison Leather with smooth, state of the art Technical Ceramic Hardware.
The Oliver Peoples for Parabellum collaboration features a version of the Linford sunglass frame in two Limited Edition colors: Matte Black with Midnight Express Polarized glass lenses and custom Matte Black Acetate details, and Rose Gold with Java Polarized glass lenses and custom Sahara Tortoise Acetate detailing. The frames include an exclusive Parabellum breath logo positioned on each of the lenses, and true to brand’s aesthetic, each pair is packaged in a beautifully handcrafted, soft Bison Leather Sunglass Case available in either Black or Pumpkin. As each piece is both one-of-a-kind and limited, the cases are stamped with a number for authenticity. The case is lined with lambskin leather, includes a custom cleaning cloth and is packaged in a protective wooden box. The exclusive Oliver Peoples for Parabellum collaboration can be purchased at Oliver Peoples Boutiques and will retail for $695.00.
