Each frame named after a neighborhood in Paris, as full of life and character as the area they represent.
HANDMADE IN FRANCE
“I really pay attention to every single detail, never compromise on quality because. I want to be able to stand behind every piece I make.”
On a recent sourcing trip in Europe, we fell in love with these rare sheets of vintage acetate, originally produced by the iconic Mazzucchelli family in Italy. Culled from a limited batch of raw, vintage stock, these pieces are highly collectible and no longer produced today. The vintage acetates are incredibly multifaceted, with unique colors and textures that change depending on the light. It is rare today to see so many colors layered together in one sheet of acetate, and the handmade nature of the pieces means that each is one of a kind.
Mazzucchelli has been producing acetate since 1849 and the quality and touch is unrivaled.
CHRISTIAN DALLOZ CRIDAL LENSES
When it comes to buying glasses, we believe that a beautiful frame should be paired with the right lenses. That is why we use Cridal lenses from French optical company, Christian Dalloz. With more than 50 years of experience in lens technology, the company offers the most complete and advanced line of optical and sun lenses in the industry today.
Cridal lenses are 100% compatible with acetate and offer excellent resistance to stress cracking, while also passing the 45 m/s low energy impact test required in eye protection standards. In addition, Cridal lenses offer excellent transparency without light diffusion, allowing for clean, clear vision free from any distortion.
Produced entirely in France, Cridal lenses are held to the highest manufacturing regulations for quality and standards. The lenses are made from a recyclable thermoplastic material, resulting in a low carbon footprint and responsible environmental practices.
