It has always left a lasting impression of timeless sophistication. However, the recent collaboration between Oliver Peoples and Swiss former professional tennis player Roger Federer has truly brought about a pleasant surprise.

A perfect pairing for sport and lifestyle, the lightweight glasses feature impeccable lens technology and precise fit. Featuring collaboration exclusive details that honor Roger’s tennis legacy throughout, the collection is a noteworthy combination of style and precision.

The RF x Oliver Peoples collection features a total of six styles that seamlessly incorporate Oliver Peoples’ elegant and sophisticated DNA, a pursuit of craftsmanship, and the sporty spirit represented by Roger Federer. Among them, the shield sunglasses are an unprecedented release from Oliver Peoples, symbolizing the brand’s venture into a completely new category of sporty fashion eyewear. It undoubtedly catches the eye and leaves a lasting impression!

This collaborative collection showcases several exclusive design elements. For example, the “8” plaque on the temple was specially designed for Federer, as he has a strong connection to the number “8.” Not only was he born on August 8th, 1981, but he has also won the Wimbledon tennis championship a record eight times. The custom pattern of the metal plaque is inspired by the threading patterns of the strings on tennis rackets. Each eyewear style in the collection is adorned with an octagonal metal plaque at the end of the temple, reminiscent of the racket’s butt cap, featuring Federer’s RF logo. This logo is also subtly incorporated into the metal components of the temples, lenses, and hinges, maintaining a discreet yet exquisite attention to detail. The end tips of the temples and the nose pads of individual styles are made of rubber, allowing for easy adjustment and preventing slippage, making these fashionable sports eyewear suitable for both daily wear and athletic activities.
