Although conceptualized in Toulouse, France, the ‘ELEGANTES’ collection from Anne et Valentin aims to achieve a very English sense of extravagance that, to the company’s description, “effortlessly combines discretion AND excess”.
These refined frames are based on classic shapes rendered in modern form. Sober colours coal black and chocolate are paired with matte and gloss gold and silver to produce understated yet intriguing results.
The models from the collection are named after the Irish author Samuel BECKETT, English poet William BLAKE, English author Samuel BUTLER and English authors Emily and Charlotte BRONTE. All were watchful, reflective types who kept their eyes on the world around them.
We hope our male and female clients, alike, will appreciate these alternatives to the trend of conspicuous extremes . They represent a resurgence of refinement and an economy of scale.
