-Oliver Peoples Fall 2022 campaign “Nineteen Sixties” features a film directed by award-winning Czech director, writer and producer Eva Doležalová, who is represented for commercials and content by Ridley Scott’s RSA Films. The film invokes a refined 1960s aesthetic, complete with old Hollywood, rock star style and a TWA flight terminal owned by aviation tycoon Howard Hughes.
