Anne Fontaine's exclusive solar eyewear collection is manufactured in the North of France using ancestral techniques and craftsmanship. It takes between six and nine months to design and manufacture our eyewear line. For one week cycles, the frames and the arms are cradled in wooden barrels, twisting and turning among logs and ceramics which shape and give the frames their polished and shiny appearance. This traditional method of manufacturing results in exceptional quality. Retro in spirit and inspired by the 1960's and 1970's, they are adorned with the signature codes of the house. Floral motifs or metallic bow jewelry on the arms of the frames makes them recognizably Anne Fontaine. Available exclusively at Anne Fontaine boutiques worldwide.
