Oliver Peoples - Master & Dynamic - Gregory Peck 1962
Los Angeles-based eyewear brand, Oliver Peoples, proudly releases an exclusive collaboration with New York City-based premium audio company, Master & Dynamic. The limited-edition collection features three custom Oliver Peoples acetates – made by world-renowned, Italian manufacturer, Mazzucchelli – on limited-editions of the OP-505 sunglasses and Master & Dynamic’s MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones and MW07 PLUS True Wireless Earphones.
The collaboration brings together a Los Angeles icon in eyewear with a New York innovator in sound and design. The pairing was a seamless fit given that both brands look to vintage aesthetics for inspiration and aim to create pieces that will always remain in style. Master & Dynamic’s founder, Jonathan Levine, was initially inspired to launch headphones after seeing a pair of WWII aviator headphones in a museum and for Oliver Peoples, inspiration came from vintage eyewear found in an estate collection.
The exclusive partnership looks to the heritage of both brands by bringing forth modern, exclusive editions of core styles. For Oliver Peoples, there is nothing more iconic to feature than the OP-505. The frame was the first style in the debut Oliver Peoples 1987 collection and sparked the vintage eyewear trend. Defined by its filigreed temple and bridge reminiscent of machine age craftsmanship, the OP-505 is reimagined for this exclusive collaboration with three custom acetate colors – including an 18k gold plated option – all matched with vivid glass lenses and sleek metal detail.
The MW65 Active Noise-Cancelling Wireless Headphones – known for aesthetics as much as product innovation – feature lightweight aluminum alongside fine leathers and for the first time, include custom acetate details. The MW65 headphones offer two active noise-cancelling modes to tailor sound to specific surroundings for a clear, balanced listening experience without compromising sound quality. In addition, custom 40mm Beryllium drivers deliver Master & Dynamic’s signature rich, warm sound that captures the detail of well-recorded music.
The MW07 PLUS True Wireless Earphones are the most technically advanced earphones offered by Master & Dynamic. They feature the same custom acetate details and include a sleek, stainless steel charging case to match. The MW07 PLUS include an unparalleled 40 hours of total playtime with 10 hours of battery life and 3 additional charges in the case and Bluetooth 5.0 with 30m/100ft connection range. With dual beamforming noise reduction mic arrays, the headphones provide best-in-class talk performance with 10mm custom Beryllium drivers to deliver overall exceptional sound.
Oliver Peoples, shares its latest addition to the Gregory Peck collection, the Gregory Peck 1962. Similar to the iconic Oliver Peoples frame, made in collaboration with the Peck Estate and inspired by the signature style worn by its namesake in To Kill a Mockingbird, the Gregory Peck 1962 is a modern, foldable edition to the classic frame.
With an ode to the year the film first premiered, the Gregory Peck 1962 maintains the same design details as the original, including the vintage-inspired keyhole bridge and elongated genuine plaque detail, in addition to a functional plaque on the temples for added strength and durability. Each frame features a custom Oliver Peoples logo-engraved corewire to maintain the integrity of the frame as well as a hand-inlaid logo insignia brand detail. The Gregory Peck 1962 style comes in an array of tortoise hues and limited-edition colors to match alongside glass lenses.
