BISHOP is an ever-so-gentle hexagonal round, whose magical powers allow it to cross generations. The height of snobbery, it is suitable for both dedicated followers of no-style (norm-core rising) and precious dandies. And what does BISHOP have to say? Nothing. It has better things to do.


BISHOP is part of the SYM­BOL­IQUES collection, all-ti­ta­nium right through the temple tips, knows how to use the codes of bygone elegance in order to subvert them. Their high­lighted hinges and ar­tic­u­la­tions, inspired by retro-vin­tage, propel the frames of this concept towards the future, with the sense of design dear to Anne&Valentin.

With their deeply aes­thetic me­chan­ics, SYM­BOL­IQUES models are almost sen­ti­men­tal and, in any case, very en­dear­ing. The chiseled models are inspired by the re­fine­ment of watch­mak­ing. We think of Delaunay, the kinetic art of Marcel Duchamp, pre­ci­sion me­chan­ics, or the cosmic ar­tic­u­la­tions of plan­e­tary move­ments. While the curved end pieces lend dynamic, circular motion, the bridge gives fluidity to the whole. The three di­men­sions of the object ac­cen­tu­ate movement and create con­trasts punc­tu­ated by colors and ma­te­ri­als.
These are ar­che­typal frames, designed for thinkers, ex­plor­ers of ideas, re­searchers and the­o­reti­cians of a deeper daily being. But they also enchant mu­si­cians, artists, anti-hip­sters, asphalt rebels who find here a happy coun­ter­point to too-con­ven­tional ten­den­cies.

Our made in Japan titanium takes on its full im­por­tance in this concept, whose way of tran­scend­ing ages and eras is quite un­prece­dented. SYM­BOL­IQUES rises to the chal­lenge, seizing a tra­di­tion and mod­ern­iz­ing it.


Anne et Valentin believes a frame should not only flatter and complement, but express who you really are. And while their creations are original, colorful and lively, they are, above all, objects that combine ergonomics, technical requirements, and respect for those who wear them.
