Shape Shifting

  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.
