"Bill Barton and Patty Perreira innovated the art of seeing at some of fashion's most iconic brands. In 2007, these eyewear legends set off on their own journey, coming together to create Barton Perreira. Their vision was clear. An independent brand that sees things differently, taking the time to invest in craftsmanship that produces nothing less than the finest eyewear in the world. Bill Barton began his career as an optician, learning the intricacies of the eyewear industry and the value of human connection. These experiences informed his tenure as CEO of Oliver Peoples, leading and driving remarkable growth, before moving on to transform the eyewear industry toward a more authentic future with the creation of Barton Perreira. Patty Perreira's intuitive style and storied designs have been the centerpieces of collections ranging from Vera Wang, Prada, Miu Miu, Paul Smith, and for over eighteen years, Oliver Peoples, where she redefined what eyewear means to the modern world. Fearless, soulful and endlessly versatile, her intuition guides every move."
