OLIVER PEOPLES OPENS IN SAN FRANCISCO

Northern California is Home to the Newest Oliver Peoples Location

Announcing the opening of our new boutique in San Francisco!  Situated on the corner of Grant Avenue and Maiden Lane, we are happy to join the established shopping area that houses many of San Francisco’s most impressive luxury retail addresses. The boutique offers a large array of new and iconic sunglasses and optical styles from Oliver Peoples.

“Being a California-rooted brand, San Francisco has always been a target city for us to open an Oliver Peoples Boutique,” says David Schulte, CEO “It’s really been a matter of finding the right location. We have had a strong presence here for over 25 years via our great wholesale partners, and to now complement this business with a flagship store is extremely exciting.  So many elements of San Francisco inspire us – its beauty, art scene, bohemian yet sophisticated aesthetic, entrepreneurs, music, etc.; the list goes on. We can’t wait to be a part of it and hope to add to what makes this city great.”

Together with Larry Leight, Oliver Peoples Founder and Creative Director, Los Angeles-based design-build practiceMarmol Radzinerfashioned a distinctive architectural identity for the new boutique that brought to life Leight’s vision for the store.

“Infusing the Oliver Peoples boutique with the local surroundings, while maintaining the company’s existing visual identity was an exciting approach for us,” says Ron Radziner, Marmol Radziner design principal. “By referencing the San Francisco Bay’s rugged shoreline features, we set the stage for the meticulously designed and crafted Oliver Peoples eyewear."

The store design draws inspiration from objects found on the beach, ships coasting in the bay, grey hues of the sun-bleached terrain, and striking colors of the coastal sunset. The center of the 800 sq. foot space holds a live-edge, wood-slab table, reminiscent of logs washed ashore. Multi-length planks of live-edge wood, supported by slender geometric metal bases, provide a refined display for the eyewear. The weathered look of the consultation tables artistically contrasts the custom bronze-colored lighting fixtures that add polish and definition to the setting. An eye-catching, woven-wood wall detail evokes the construction of a ship’s hull, while creating a flow to direct the eye along the lit shelves of sunglasses and optical frames. The boutique’s design maximizes the functionality of the location, encourages customer engagement, and reinforces the integrity and California heritage of the Oliver Peoples brand.
