Face à Face eyewear is one designer brand that recognizes that the value of glasses and sunglasses can go beyond functionality, becoming an object of desire that’s as personal to the individual as any other accessory with which they choose to adorn themselves.
Established in 1995 by designers Pascal Jaulent and Nadine Roth, Face à Face brings continental chic to every pair of designer glasses and sunglasses in its collections. And yet other than the elite construction, exclusive designs, and distinctive architecture that define the brand, Face à Face eyewear is as diverse as those who find themselves drawn to it.
All Face à Face glasses are handmade in France, near the French Alps, using premium materials like high-impact acetates and optical grade titanium. Jaulent and Roth create jewelry for the face and, like jewelry, their glasses and sunglasses allow the wearer to express his or her own unique style.
Devotees of the brand attribute their loyalty to the brand’s dedication to distinctive texture and color combinations, unexpected pairings of diverse materials, sculptural touches like sweeping contours and crisp angles, and options that include everything from classic neutrals to the trendiest colors, from streamlined frames perfect for executives to oversized sunglasses that are starlet-ready. The keyword is intensity, but it’s intensity without drama.
Maybe that’s why Face à Face frames are so popular with celebrities who want a polished image without projecting flamboyance. You may have admired the brand’s stunning styles on Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Hopper, and Sigourney Weaver without knowing precisely what you were seeing.
No matter who you are, what you wear, or how you live, there is a pair of Face à Face glasses that will bring out your natural allure by framing the brilliance that is already present.
