Swiss tennis champion Roger Federer has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with Oliver Peoples, with plans for the inaugural eyewear collection to be launched in the northern spring of 2024.
EssilorLuxottica said the collection will “take inspiration from the two brands’ shared dedication to excellence in one’s craft and appreciation for understated luxury”, describing Federer as a “legendary athlete, a passionate entrepreneur, and a force in the worlds of fashion and lifestyle”.
Federer said he had been an Oliver Peoples fan for years. “We both found great commonality in how we approach our work, and they are a perfect partner for the debut of my RF eyewear collection in 2024.”
Roger Federer holds the men’s record for most Wimbledon wins (eight) and has won 20 Grand Slam titles. The Roger Federer Foundation has created educational opportunities for over 2.5 million children in Africa and his home country of Switzerland over the past 20 years.
