A nod to Cary Grant in the 1959 movie North by Northwest.

Luxury California eyewear brand Oliver Peoples collaborated with the estate of Cary Grant to produce a frame inspired by the actor. Based on the style he wore in the 1959 film North by Northwest, the frame is available in both optical and sun configurations.

Named after the actor, the Cary Grant frame is currently available in five colors per configuration including a newly developed “Grant Tortoise” acetate. Other nods to Grant include a discreet CG monogram (created from his personal stationery) on the temple tip of the frame and a custom case inspired by his suit color in the Hitchcock masterpiece.

The optical style is priced at $380 and the sun style ranges from $415 with standard lenses to $475 with polarized lenses. If you’re in the market for some new eyewear, these are certainly worth a look — they meld top-tier construction with a truly iconic silhouette.
