Beers, Barbies, and beautiful Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses

Don’t be in a hurry to dust off those little black dresses for the Xmas function this year, you’ll be better off in your comfy jeans.  We have it on good authority that this year, most employees will be treated to a beer and a barbie at the boss’ place.

You will of course need to strike the right pose while turning the snaggers, and we have the timeless beauty of Oliver Goldsmith sunglasses, to help you do just that.

Twenty years after OG sunglasses ceased production, Oliver Goldsmith’s great-grand-daughter Claire Goldsmith has resurrected this iconic British sunglass brand to rapturous international reception.  Synonymous with style icons, such as Grace Kelly and Audrey Hepburn and iconoclasts like John Lennon, Oliver Goldsmith is the only sunglass designer to feature at the Victoria and Albert museum, London.  Learn more about this significant episode of fashion history at

We have also had a peek at Claire Goldsmith’s new range of optical frames, which will be available exclusively at MHPE early next year.  Can’t wait…Claire, we may not be sailing around the Auckland harbour in your sunnies this summer, but we like the cut of your gib.
