When I went to 100% Optical for the first time, the Optometry Today team asked me to select three standout pieces of eyewear and to create a piece to camera about each. One of my choices was by Parisian brand Face A Face. I was drawn to their stand of vibrant, stylish eyewear and it has remained on my radar ever since.
The brand was created by Pascal Jaulent and Nadine Roth in 1995. Their concept was based as on modernity and creativity without compromise. It is fabulous and French, high end and rich in colour and expression. It is now one of The Design Eyewear Group‘s portfolio.
Face A Face Split 2
This sun style is the Split 2. The gap at the temple makes for an unusual yet very wearable style. I chose tortoiseshell and nude pink, but there are other, more vibrant colourways too. It is lightweight and comfortable and, although I have only had it for a few weeks, it is already a favourite.
“Far from standardized fashion diktats and conformist trends , each collection asserts its artistic temperament , drawing its inspiration from the sources of Modern Art, architecture and contemporary design. Frames are developed within the design studio directed by Pascal Jaulent resembling small subtle pieces of architecture, playing with volumes, shapes, material and textures. Experience the dream filled with awe inspiring light, optical illusion, controlled deconstructions, and intrigue. Truly a paradigm shift.”
