Pierre Eyewear // An object of beauty

Meet Jeminah, a beautifly handmade piece of art by French artisan Pierre Cariven of Pierre Eyewear. We just love how the simple square shape mellows down the frame design, yet the flower cut outs creating negative space around the lenses still make this a very unique design.

Patience and determination are two of Pierre’s hallmarks. From his youth, fashion and design have been his passions (he is a devoted admirer of Ferdinand Alexander Porsche and his 911). For practical reasons he pursued business school, graduating at age 21.From there, his attraction to novelty and change drew him to the United States. During his ten-year stay there he discovered the eyewear world while participating in the development of the collections of Lacoste, L’Amy et Nina Ricci. Upon returning to France, his collaboration with several creators renewed his own creative and entrepreneurial spirit. Why not set free his personal inspiration and create his own collection?

Each frame is the product of high quality fabrication, handmade by skilled craftsmen using advanced techniques. The expertise of French manufacturing in the international eyewear market is supported by Pierre-Eyewear : «100% Certified, Hand Made in France» is the mark of the brand. Strengthened by his unique experience and encouraged by his clients, Pierre developed his first prototypes. His mind brimming with sketches and his flair for innovation left no doubt that the time was ripe for launching out as a creator. His determination and patience are the keys to achieving his dream.

To Pierre, eyewear should be an object of beauty. Above and beyond being a fashion accessory, it can be a work of art! An ergonomic and comfortable object, naturally, but also one that is a pleasure to look at, to possess and, of course, to wear. Certainly, a singular style. Subtile and ingenious. Striking allure and purity of design for this, his first collection. The clever forms are enhanced by a careful choice of colours. His motto: Harmony of elegance and simplicity.
