National: Gregory Peck Frames By Oliver Peoples

By Departures Dispatch | Shopping


The image of a bespectacled Gregory Peck as attorney Atticus Finch in the 1962 movie To Kill a Mockingbird is one of the most iconic in film history (the performance also earned Peck an Academy Award). So it's fitting that on the heels of the 50th anniversary of Harper Lee's novel, Oliver Peoples worked with the actor's son, Anthony Peck—who kept the original pair of glasses worn by his father during filming—to introduce the new Gregory Peck frame, in boutiques now. The style has a round P3 lens shape and an exaggerated keyhole bridge, and comes in black, buff and two tortoiseshell esque shades called cocobolo and raintree. The Peck family's portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Los Angeles Public Library. $315 at Oliver Peoples boutiques; oliverpeoples.com..
