ORIGINATORS OF ICONIC EYEWEAR
"Show me something made by a machine that has the same personality and attention to detail as something handmade. What we do here is special."
Oliver Goldsmith (1967)
In 1919, Phillip Oliver Goldsmith sold glasses that were considered as medical devices but felt that there was an alternative and aimed at creating eyewear that was as fashionable as it was functional.
This is where it all started.
OLIVER GOLDSMITH PIONEERED A WHOLE NEW CONCEPT. EYE WEAR.
THE FIRST TO CREATE A NEW WAVE OF EYEWEAR, WHERE FUNCTIONALITY AND FASHION WORKED HAND IN HAND.
Oliver Goldsmith believes in longevity and makes glasses meant to be enjoyed for decades. This shines through in the quality of the frames and the production methods that are used, sourcing artisan craftsmanship and components from Italy and Japan.
INTRODUCING EYEWEAR TO THE WORLD OF CATWALKS, FASHION, HOLLYWOOD, MUSIC AND ROYALTY.
