Anne et Valentin DARWIN is scientific, rational, but his favorite thing is to experiment in his lab while listening to rock. Evolution, OK, but only with a sense of rhythm. The angles are marked, the line is horizontal. DARWIN moves his body while keeping a cool head, and keeps an eye on the stats to steer clear of any excess. DARWIN is a part of the Anne et Valentin HYPERCUT collection.
The all-masculine concept HYPERCUT cultivates accuracy, measure and balance. The work on the lines aims to transcend trends in order to return to what the word “allure” is meant to convey. With essential shapes, these classy basics, cut to the millimeter, leave no room for the superfluous, and find their source in the very technique that inspires them.
The post-polishing recovery cuts, with the straight edge on the face and arms reinforcing the pure lines; the finesse of the proportions, the tight outline, serious, taut… Every detail converges towards a certain idea of what the intellectually sober man is, one over whom time has no hold.
The tones are chosen to make profound frames, easy to wear, indispensable even. At the end of the arms, a metal insert, a feather like a secret sign, discreetly shared between those in the know.
HYPERCUTs are literary, cerebral, able to take deep breaths in order to carry the story to the end. They are made for spirits who like to mark their time without making a big splash. These are frames that accompany a life of reflection, where objects matter, from the spine of a book to the timeless pen, and where thoughts are all organized toward a specific goal.
