Nathalie Blanc // Unparalleled Lightness and Finesse

Elise is wearing both a sunglass as an optical frame by the talented designer Nathalie Blanc, who is positioning herself as an “haute couture” brand mixing tradition with an avant-garde approach. Inspired by the 70’s trend, their Esther eyeglasses are thin, feminine, and retro. They became an indispensable basic for your everyday wardrobe. A must-have is made to last so we are using high-quality materials such as Mazzucchelli acetate.

The sunglass, which is called EMMA is a beautiful metal frame with very thin temples, which offers unparalleled lightness and finesse to the person who wears it. We love its double curved bar that brings more character and softness to the face.

I wanted to revisit the iconic shape of the pilot frame with a modern approach in order to bring a distinguished look to this mount through a unique curved top bar. This detail is very important to the construction of the pair and brings a unique feature to make it both bold and chic.

The Parisian house has become one of the benchmarks of the eyewear design, positioning itself as an “haute couture” brand mixing tradition with an avant-garde approach. In 2015, Nathalie Blanc launched her first eponymous eyewear brand Nathalie Blanc Paris, with the desire to create comfort for the complexity and individuality of each face.

Pure & Delicate Design

The winning design is described as a pure and delicate form, with particular care placed on every detail.

Unique & Differentiating details

Its iconic inverted bridge reduces the curve of the nose and makes women look more beautiful. A hollow circle at the end of one of the temples brings a differentiating touch to the sunglasses. A reference to the three small dots of our logo.
