Anne et Valentin DISTER carries the spirit of a rocking intellectual, in all sobriety and measure. This revisited iconic model, quite structuring, recalls the class of 1950s American men, and will highlight masculine literary types, and movie types, even. Need we name-drop? Think James Dean with his mesmerizing gaze, the ever-so-classy Cary Grant, of course, and Jim Jarmusch, whose zaniness rhymes with his genius.
Anne et Valentin DISTER is part of the CLUB series: Refinement, elegance, self-affirmation… 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 recalls 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.
