The Statement Piece

05 Nov
2016

To the reserved ‘wallflower’ seeking greater exposure, or the ‘bell-of-the-ball’ eager to make a grander entrance, Michel Henau’s new collection offers hope!  Josephson Optician’s has received a variety of  unconventional statement pieces sure to command attention.

The company’s founder and Marc Delagrange were both independent opticians in their native Belgium. Their mutual admiration and artistic approaches to design ensured that they inspired each other.

Since the death of his collaborator,  Marc has been designing from the perspective of the frame wearer, ensuring the comfort and functionality of each frame.  The simplicity of his shapes are enhanced by the striking use of colour and material.

Bolder styles, such as Odorono, are now available with translucent coloured frame fronts. This feature of the Xtra series offers the classic model more depth and complexity.

We invite you to view an inspiring assortment from the Michel Henau collection at Jospehson Optician’s Flagship location.

True to Form

20 Jan

Celebrating its 15th year in production, the MICHEL HENAU eyewear collection remains an anomaly in our industry by presenting a consistent style which is rarely in step with what is ‘on trend’.   Designer Marc Delagrange, based in Kortrijk Belgium, creates with the end wearer’s comfort in mind and the intent of  producing  objects which are contemporary and timeless.

   These bold forms actually flatter and compliment the uniqueness of our faces which, structurally, vary greatly from the ‘idealized’ oval.

   We encourage you to marvel at the unique qualities of the MICHEL HENAU eyewear collection at our Flagship location.

Shape Shifting

18 Jan

  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.
