Anne et Valentin DIDDLEY is an angular model, assertive, roomy, and knows how to play with its exaggerated squareness. It is an electric, rock, taut frame, which brings, with exigency, a real energy to wide faces. There is a lot of personality and quirkiness in DIDDLEY, as well as a soft spot for the hard-boiled detective genre: nonchalantly striding across a glistening tarmac at night, or taking in spectacular panoramas in the black and white daylight of Film Noir…
Anne et Valentin DIDDLEY is part of the CLUB collection. Refinement, elegance, sobriety... The rules of this club - more Chicago than New York - are tacit, and centered on the desire to share, collaborate and discover the world. A retro revisited series, with distinct angles and remarkable attention to form, CLUB shows off relief temples finished with surprising dynamism.
Emphatic and architectural shapes inspired by the creations of Franck Lloyd Wright are clearly marked with the bold planes.Dark-ish, rock-n-roll-ish, political songwriter-ish, CLUB re-calls the Beat Generation. The frames are iconic without going over the top, literary without lyricism, and confer to their wearers a sharp and intelligent aura.
One thinks of Kerouac, of course, early Dylan, and the Sixties voices whose great minds and underground poetry explored vast internal and external worlds.Intimacy, adventure, subtlety. And a lot of inspiration.
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.
