|8mm acetate, rivet hinges
|Through a local fixer
An iconic symbol of French production in the 40s and 50s, these frames were cut from a slab of rare demi-blond acetate from Rhône-Poulenc. First, the shape was cut in one piece. Then, everything else – from fluting to polishing – was done by hand. You'll have to come by the shop often to get your hands on a pair of these, they sell too fast! They pass through our stock only a few times each year.
