Philippe V

Chantal stopped wondering which pill she should take. Wearing Philippe V’s No.5 she sees life like no other and makes memorable marks along the way during the Rio shoot.

Philippe V, the creation of Philippe Vergez, was born out of the observed need of people to express their individualism in a world where they are surrounded by globalized conformity, even as they have to exist in that world.  Philippe embraces authentic anarchistic values and is a direct reflection of what is buried deep inside many people: a refusal to be tamed, a desire to live an unconfirmed life, or if living a conformed life is necessary, to do it with a twist, with a chameleon-like grace that keeps your spirit alive. His model Numero 5 is  frame with no hinge, a monel and stainless steel frame, CR39 lenses with front oilophobic treatment and inner anti reflective coating. Eyewear design requires talent and skills. Shapes, colours and textures are meant to highlight a person’s unique features and style.
