Anne et Valentin SOLSTICE, the natural, voluptuous, glamorous cat-eye of the series, that appeals to an inherent, expressive, evident and unabashed femininity. Retro and Felliniesque, its deployed wings harbor a tempting seductress.
Anne et Valentin SOLSTICE is part of the ECLIPSE collection: A conversation between subtly interlocking shapes. Using plays of light, our designers have refined the proportions of these sunglasses while maintaining their volume. It is as if material were subtracted and yet still present. In the void, the frames reveal a hidden dimension. Superimposed layers, like transparent Plexiglas, display the frames’ composition with the surprising effect of a delicate relief.
Varying the colors leads to more or less subtle effects. Crystalline hues create contrast – here with gradations, there with complements – and ever so present plays of shadow and light to filter the tones and highlights. A trompe l’oeil, an illusion, a magic trick… Who knows?
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.
