Jean-François Rey // Hello Darling

Captivating aluminum Eyewear in lightness and contemporary minimalism through a high-level search for balance in shapes, volumes and colors. That’s what the new “Hello Darling” collection by Jean-Francois Rey is all about.


Resulting from the handcraft work in Jura, this steel-aluminum concept offers a new captivating experiment in lightness and contemporary minimalism.

Its expressive and assertive look comes with the original design of the front which consists of the assembly of a colored aluminum piece on the top of the frames.

Highlighted eyebrows (JF2940) or fashionable double-bridge (JF2939), the silhouettes are structured in contrasts of volumes, thicknesses and colors.

The touch of JF Rey design comes as a driving force with this ability to give character and uniqueness to simple shapes, to rethink the balance in which artistic dualities give shape to frames.

The aesthetics is thought out down to the smallest details, in particular with the use of a thin and distinctive hinge which brings character and lightness to the frame. Highly curated color schemes are pure, fresh and radiant, highlighting the expressive energy of the line.


Always combining graphic style and modern sobriety, Jean-François Rey signs here two assertive models distinguished by the right detail, in the right color and the right proportions. A lightweight, distinctive and clean design in a modern mood. See the whole collection on their website.
