Design Philosophy

With over 15 years in the business of designing and producing top-tier fashion eyewear, our team understands the rigorous process behind how the best designs take shape. Building on this experience, we’ve distilled elements from the most successful styles in our archive to create our three essential silhouettes: Le Rond, Le Carré and Le Chat.

Our core collection is guided by three design principles: purity of form, integrity of materials and thoughtful consideration of details.

Every millimeter is carefully considered to exude a timeless, vintage-inspired aesthetic combined with subtle modern details. Each style is perfectly weighted for all day wear and universally flattering across face shapes.

Our first focus is quality—the definition of true luxury. We begin with lustrous handmade Italian acetates from the most reputable artisans in the business since 1849, Mazzucchelli Italy. Acetate is a natural plastic material derived from purified plant-based cellulose, it's comfortable to wear, simple to adjust with light heat, and exceptionally durable.

We use exclusively CR-39 lenses with an anti-reflective coating to reduce glare from light entering the back of the lens. CR-39 is the lightweight alternative to mineral glass with maximum UVA/UVB protection and superior visual acuity. Our signature detailing includes custom hardware and authentic pin hinges to achieve the sturdiest construction.

Finally, we place an exceptional focus on fit, comfort, and versatility. Each Aperçu style is destined to become a quotidian favorite, worn with every look for any occasion. Clean, modern packaging includes:

  • lightweight, padded soft case in ultra-suede 
  • oversized microfiber cleaning cloth
  • recyclable presentation box
  • re-useable dust-bag in microfiber
