Shape Shifting

18 Jan
2014

  After  an absence of over a decade on our shelves, we are pleased to reintroduce to our clients the exceptionally original designs of  the MICHEL HENAU eyewear collection.

Henau began crafting hand- made frames in Belgium in the 1970’s and by the 1990’s was collaborating with like -minded sole mate and art educated optician Marc Delagrange.

  Conceptualizing his designs  from  the point of view of the end wearer, Delagrange concentrates on the necessities of comfort and of achieving harmony, in both colour and shape, with the facial structure of an individual.

The craftsman rationalizes that “a frame should be full of contemporary purity and refinement, made from materials and colours which reinforce the simplicity of the shape’s timeless functionality.”

  Delagrange’s  resulting  collections  include innovative shapes in their purist form without embellishments. Their bold forms actually flatter and compliment the uniqueness of our faces, which structurally vary greatly from the ‘idealized’ oval.

  We invite you to view the MICHEL HENAU eyewear collection at our flagship location.

  Should you be traveling by bus from Nairobi to Mombasa or by ferry from Dar es Salaam to Unguja, your journey would be considered a safari.  While  touring  the African continent, or roaming the streets closer to home, one needs to be outfitted with the most appropriate   accessories.

  Robert Marc has created a limited edition collection of eyewear that could be worn with adventure in mind.  Inspired by the observance of wildlife and landscapes while on expedition, these hand made frames evoke the spirit of a safari.

The models Cheetah, Jaguar and Leopard feature the  printed  skin of a big cat on their temples.  The complimentary colours camel, sunset and twilight are featured on the frame fronts.
