TEF TALK – Vision Expo NYC:
The French made, California based brand Davette’s Lunettes, designs their eyewear not just around the face, but also around someone’s personal character. At Vision Expo, Davette and Stephen showed me some of their latest styles and on what characters they were based on.
Davette’s inspiration starts with her love for colorful vintage accessories, and is finished with a modern contemporary fit. Designer Davette Fournier states, “I’m simply making eyewear that I love for me… and I love sharing it with people who want pretty things. I focus keenly on women’s accessories with vintage flair, and the intent to capture the beauty of independent women interested in making a lasting impression everywhere they are seen.” Davette’s Lunettes is handmade in France from original dense cotton acetate. We do not apply any varnishes, as all of our frames feature hand polished or tumbled finishes with hand set stones and studs.
Each unique frame is named after a woman who has inspired Davette in life, is personally inspected by Davette, and features Davette’s personalized signature for authenticity on the inside temple and 250 limited editions.
