Anne et Valentin DYLAN, rigorous and rock-n-roll, albeit with a sense of chic and class, knows its strengths, but doesn’t brag about them. A wind of freedom blows through this frame, which assumes its iconic status with confidence. Its thick, masculine bridge is attenuated by gently rising lines, and carries a confident, sober expression. Intelligent is the new sexy.
Anne et Valentin DYLAN 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.
