KHAITE x Oliver Peoples

This next chapter of KHAITE x Oliver Peoples comes to life in the dynamic urban density of Manhattan, viewed through a long-focus lens. Photographer Daniel Arnold captured model Mila van Eeten in a reportage-style campaign of glamour and surveillance. Shot from a variety of distances, angles, and focal points, the images make a voyeur of the viewer, following van Eeten as she moves through a cinematic landscape that recalls the New York of Fatal Attraction and A Perfect Murder. KHAITE x Oliver Peoples sunglasses are featured along with elements of the KHAITE Fall/Winter 2023 ready-to-wear collection to propose a new balance of power and pleasure—seen and unseen.
Details dedicated to the collaboration are instantly recognizable along the temples, tipped by alternating logos. In the acetate styles, which are strengthened by functional pins, a first-of-its-kind double-embedding process exposes custom corewire inspired by the streamlined hardware of KHAITE handbags.
The vision of KHAITE extends further, through new additions to the KHAITE x Oliver Peoples collection of sunglasses for the discerning eye. The ongoing collaboration reimagines vintage forms through a shared dedication to distinctive yet enduring style, exquisite materials, and unparalleled craftsmanship.
The augmented range also includes new color combinations for two of the collection’s existing styles. Both the stylized oval silhouette of 1969C and the decisive yet dramatic shape of 1983C introduce versatile hues of smoky taupe, paired with carbon grey lenses, and transparent crystal, paired with mirrored silver lenses.
