For all those Burn Notice fans out there who have been looking for the sunglasses worn on the show, the folks from Oliver Peoples have decided to re-release the design for a limited time.
Check out the full press release below:
Oliver Peoples is pleased to announce a limited production of the classic and highly sought after Victory aviator sunglass. The discontinued frame has been widely recognized over the last ten years, appearing in television shows, on celebrities, and in renowned publications. Due to numerous requests and a high demand for re-production of the frame, Oliver Peoples is excited to release a limited supply of the Victory in March 2015.
The Victory gained massive recognition from USA’s network show Burn Notice which premiered in 2007. The main character, played by Jeffrey Donovan, wore the Victory in the cognac polarized lens. Subsequently, that same year Oliver Peoples ceased production of the frame leaving the many consumers who wanted to purchase it to sadly discover it had stopped being made.
The Victory is a surprising phenomenon for Oliver Peoples. The sunglass is discussed on internet forums nearly every day with people trying to figure out where the original can be found. Oliver Peoples wants to be able to satisfy our loyal customer’s needs and therefore have found it is time for a small re-production of the frame.
The Victory is a handsome double-bridge square aviator made from high-quality metal designed with a straight brow bar. The silicone nose pads and temple tips provide additional comfort and fit, and the 6-base lens curve and exclusive crown glass Photo-chromic or Polarized lenses with VFX technology provide maximum coverage and 100% UV protection. The cognac lens has been the most desired as it is the color worn in season one of USA network’s Burn Notice and quite a statement piece for those looking for a more unique aesthetic.
The sunglass will be released in the original size (55) in the Gold/Cognac Polarized lenses and will also come in three other color ways including Gold/Rose Quartz mirror photochromic, Gold/Photochromic Amber and Birch/Quartz mirror polarized lenses.
The Victory sunglasses and will be available beginning this Friday on www.oliverpeoples.com
