Face a Face's Pascal Jaulent, Designer of the Month!

Our lovely display of offerings currently at Spectacle on Yonge Street.

A spectacle favorite for many seasons, Parisian eyewear line Face a Face has built their reputation on stunning colours and vibrant shapes.  February is a big month for the fellow behind many of these designs as Eyestylist, the Fine Eyewear Design Review has selected Face a Face designer, Pascal Jaulent as their influential designer of the month!

In his interview, Pascal explains some of the design ideals behind the handmade line:

The basic principle of Face à Face has always been architecture, and now we also combine fashion with shapes and colours – it is very artful. When designing frames, it is important to pay attention to design, but also fashion trends. Frames are a personal object or accessory that has to be connected to fashion trends.

The Ebony 1 in colours 494, 598, and 794 just arrived at Queen Street today!

There are many more collections now than a few years ago. Frames are a personal expression, and the attention that people are paying to frames is a growing, positive trend. I want customers to say ‘this is beautiful, and my eyes smile’. I like to make people look beautiful in their glasses.

With some of the most distinct, handmade acetate styles, it's no wonder the brand has warmed it's way into our hearts, which is why you'll find the collection at both our Yonge Street at Lawrence Park location as well as our Flagship Boutique on Queen West.
