Oliver Goldsmith Sunglasses

New Arrivals

Eyegoodies is proud to welcome to the site Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses.

Today, the legacy and traditions set forth way back then is continued through Oliver’s great-granddaughter Claire Goldsmith. The same quality, craftsmanship, and pride in handmade eyewear — One of kind sunglasses that speak not through obnoxious logos, but by the beauty, individuality, and personality in their designs.

Oliver Goldsmith, founded in London in 1926, didn’t invent sunglasses — Nero wore thick slabs of emerald to shield his eyes from fierce Roman sun 2000 years ago. But there are few, if any, who have had the influence that Oliver Goldsmith has. They heralded an eyewear revolution, changing their perception from medical necessity to a fashion must-have.

Every year Oliver Goldsmith opens up their famed vintage archives and carefully selects from among their most beloved styles which will comprise their collection. Here we take a detailed look at one of the most iconic sunglasses, movies, and starlets of all time.

Today I met a delightful young lady called Audrey Hepburn. They tell me she is going to be a big star.”

Oliver Goldsmith Manhattan sunglasses

“Oh, golly gee damn!” … here we go.

The unforgettable frames worn throughout the movie are at the peak of Hepburn’s perfect wardrobes — like her, they epitomize elegance, glamour, and timeless beauty.  Handmade in Italy, the Manhattan is a universally flattering feminine design with a subtle sexy up-sweep.  It features thick and substantial acetate, hand drilled real riveted hinges, and is available in 4 unique colors — including the signature “Dark Tortoiseshell” with Green lenses that Audrey wears in the film.

Oliver Goldsmith has painstakingly recreated and reissued their legendary ‘Manhattan’ sunglasses, as worn by Audrey Hepburn (Holly Golightly) in the classic 1961 film ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

All that’s left to do is slip on your little black dress and indulge.
