Morel // The reinterpretation of an iconic model

In 1880, Jules Morel created his first pince-nez. 140 years later, Morel reinvented them with a contemporary twist. Refined and original, these frames are the testimony of history and eyewear know-how since 1880.

Today, the French eyewear brand launches two reinterpretations of this iconic model.


This model creates a distinct look for men and is inspired by the first pince-nez made by Morel. The frame is worked with finesse with a reversed nylor assembly that gives it all its originality. The brand’s signature M monogram adds a subtle nod to the heritage of the Morel brand.


Morel offers a feminine reinterpretation of the pince-nez featuring a charming cat-eye shape that highlights the eyes. The rose gold of the frame catches the light and subtly reflects it, bringing radiance to the front. Signed with the monogram M, in a guilloche all around the rim, refinement is pushed to its peak.

The story of Morel begins in 1880, on the heights of the Haut-Jura National Park: the cradle of French eyewear. For four generations, Morel has been designing eyewear with passion and creativity.

The 1880 collection is inspired by the brand’s emblematic models and reinterprets designs at the heart of the trend.

Morel’s history is first and foremost that of a family passionate about their work as manufacturers of the eyeglasses they have designed and created since 1880.

The French brand is both creative and trailblazing, making its mark on the public through its iconic models sold in millions of copies throughout the world. 140 years during which the brand has never stopped perfecting its know-how, refining its technical skills and cultivating its creativity.

Today Morel owns the largest design center for eyeglasses in France. Artistic directors, designers, prototype makers and color specialists work hand in hand to design the eyeglasses of the future, from the initial idea to the finished product.
