JF Rey // Concept Carbon Color

In line with the CarbonWood concept, a bestseller in the men’s collections at J.F. REY, the Maison Jean-François Rey is launching a new generation of frames, more colourful, more distinctive, but always surprising technicality. A new combination of top-grade materials, in acetate and carbon fibre, guides the style and gives this line its unique design.


Vintage-inspired shapes, technical excellence, the unique qualities of carbon fibre and extensive know-how for finishing touches: this new collection revisits the codes that made the success of the CarbonWood line by introducing acetate, which becomes a key issue in the design. Assembled on the top of the frame, it energizes and upgrades the shapes playing with electric monochromes and sophisticated graphic prints. Some models are available in limited series: they come with new ranges of Mazzucchelli colours, always preserving this idea of exceptional frames which makes that one feels unique when wearing them.


Colours, thicknesses and textures artistically interact, highlighting the complexity and stylistic performance of the creations. The aesthetics is in the refined details, such as the TORX screws with their starred heads. Traditionally used in fine jewellery, they decorate each side of the frame while ensuring excellent support of the face. Modern, lightweight and current, these frames are the start for new creative possibilities.
