Colour blocking the sun...Anne et Valentin

collage by Eyespectacle - Frames by Anne et Valentin
Anne et Valentin have been playing with form (geometric!) and colour (bold! my favorite...) for over fifteen years and the collection I saw at SILMO, the Parisian eyewear fair, a couple of weeks back was true testament to what they stand for: frames for the confident!

This year the fair was free of big multinationals and their endless portfolio of licenses. Instead the smaller, more interesting, independent brands (the ones I like to write about on Eyespectacle!) were prominent. SILMO reached out to all those that support true personality and style. Standing for leaders in design and fashion, and not the sheep, Anne et Valentin are true veterans of this aesthetic and I can see how they have inspired, throughout the years, many designers present.

I loved the frames as well as the graphic backdrop of the display which reminds me of those ruled notepads I used at at school for my geometry class, or Tron...how 80's!!!
