Morel // V-Award for Nathalie Blanc collab

Congratz to our friends at Morel on winning a V-Award in the optical frame category for a style that was designed for the exclusive collection created with Nathalie Blanc. The winning frame features pure lines with a translucid acetate brow-bar. The cats-eye shape and vintage feminine styles, are beautifully highlighted through the “de-structured” effect around the outside of the eye.

Morel by Nathalie Blanc

On paper, the Morel-Nathalie Blanc combination might surprise, because the two brands seem worlds apart. Firstly, Morel, an independent family-owned business with a powerful heritage that will soon celebrate its 140 years of existence is recognized by the world for its know-how.

Then, Nathalie Blanc, the young, fashionable brand that challenges ideas through its trendy collections. But in spite of all this, real chemistry has been born between the two brands. What do they have in common? The love of beautifully designed eyewear!
