Anne et Valentin’s independence allows them to create glasses for a niche group of people who are looking for quirky, colorful, artsy, post-modern, retro, chic eyewear. Anne et Valentin does not create eyewear for the masses. As Valentin explains “We will never take a broad approach to address more people – because then you need to go to simple designs. So we will continue to develop great frames for a narrow distribution”. At Artisan Optics we have a wonderful selection of Anne et Valentin eyewear. We invite you to stop by.
This particular style is the Recover from the SUPERPOSE collection by Anne et Valentin – designed with two superimposed thin threads that intertwine, curl, play on thicknesses, meet and part, unite and face up to each other. This approach enables distinct crossings and combinations of lines and colors to reveal fulfilling relief and relieving hollows, to emphasize thicknesses and the always subtle details of the frames, in an eye-opening manner.
Eminently modern, very inspired by contemporary design, like a nod to a Mathieu Mategot rendered in an ultimately minimalist form, the SUPERPOSE concept gives for frames deliberately conceived as timeless objects. Made in Japanese titanium, used for its lightness and flexibility, executed by one of the best manufactures in the country.
The double bars serve as double-bridges, uniting the inner circles. The lower bridge projects slightly to breathe dynamism into the profile. Both technical and aesthetic, the models of this concept represent a serious challenge, for reasons held fiercely secret by our designers.
The line is fluid, refined, giving way to an expression specific to the concept, which wearers come to enrich with their own and individual personality.
When choosing eyewear there are many considerations: prescription, type of lens that will be used, frame fit, skin tone, and personal style. Taking advantage of complimentary eyewear make-overs is a great way to explore shapes, colors and styles that you’ve perhaps not previously considered. This is also an opportunity to gain an outside perspective on updating your eyewear wardrobe.
