We love a great love story. Anne et Valentin tells a story of how two people-fated to fall in love-shared a passion for eyewear craftsmanship. Named after its founders, Anne et Valentin is a brand considered to be the pinnacle of French eyewear.
Anne et Valentin began when Valentine obtained his optician’s degree in 1980 and Anne mastered her passion for design. The couple decided to create their brand through a revolutionary process of customizing their eyewear based on the customer’s lifestyle. In order to create the perfect frame, the couple opted to get a better understanding of their customers, assessing how they move, think, what their personalities were like and other particulars. They conducted a survey to learn what aspect of glasses matters most to the wearers. With this in mind, Anne drew some designs and their first collection was launched in 1984, when they named their brand, Anne et Valentin.
Anne incorporated her creative design skills perfectly described as colorful and lively. She also began to design with ergonomics, technical aspects, and customer personalization in mind. The combination of meticulous craftsmanship and unique styling brought their first eyewear collection spectacular results and has continued even until present day.
Made from the best materials available
Anne et Valentin glasses are made from the finest materials available only in Japan and France. Japan is known for its highest quality of Titanium while France produces the best frame materials like acetate and plastic. Anne et Valentin not only focuses on manufacturing high-end designs, but also values supreme quality and durability.
While technology has advanced the eyewear industry, Anne et Valentin has kept its original touch and continues handcrafting their products. Frames are designed and iterated by their skilled artisans, while technicians in France and Japan apply the finishing touches to complete their frames. Their personal approach combined with its artistic designs and the use of top quality materials is what makes Anne et Valentin one-of-a-kind.
