Spectacle celebrated the launch of the “Made To Measure” event last week with a shopping party at their Queen Street West location with the help of special guest, Larry Leight, Oliver Peoples Founder and Creative Director. The event allows customers to purchase newly released Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith Spectacles or Mosley Tribes’ from the Spring and Summer 2012 collections, and have them customized with a rare assortment of over 50 polarized and recreated vintage glass lens options. “This is Oliver Peoples’ first custom tailored lens event in Canada, and we are honoured that Larry Leight will be in attendance.” says Spectacle Founder and Owner, Jag Dhillon.
Oliver Peoples was co-founded in 1987 by eyewear visionary and designer Larry Leight.
