Frédéric Beausoleil established his own business because he unable to find someone who could produce the spectacle designs that would meet his expectations. Having founded a company of only two persons, this French designer created his own factory 20 years ago. Now the name Frédéric Beausoleil is a luxury brand – spotless and neo-classic. As he himself said, “this brand is for rich people who do not want to look rich”. That is probably why this brand is preferred by Robert De Niro, Julia Roberts, Robert Redford and so many of us.
The Leight name is well-known in the world of optics – Larry Leight is the founder of legendary brand Oliver Peoples. But that is another story. Garrett Leight is Larry Leight’s son, who started developing his own brand a couple of years ago. Currently, it is widely known for its unique identity.
The goal and vision Garrett Leight California Optical wants to provide its customers is the opportunity to complement their own style and image rather than create it from scratch. This brand is devoid of pageantry and pretentiousness – Garrett Leight prefers classic, vintage style, making play of it in his individual manner and applying his perception and understanding of what glasses should be like. The brand produces glasses for people who already have their own style, are distinguished by their personality and want to be invisible when they carry garish brands with logos on the sides. This is why Garrett doesn’t highlight the logo – spectacle frames and sunglasses don’t bear the logo at all; it is seen on the spectacle temples only from the inside.

The name of the French independent eyewear brand – Anne & Valentin – includes all the brand’s essence: the union of two kindred souls! This love story has changed not only the lives of Anne and Valentin but also the wide world of optics. The technology that highlights and makes Anne & Valentin very special lies in frames and sunglasses from several collections made as sculptures cut from a solid piece of material. The brand is produced in only two countries in the world – France and Japan. The best French factories specialise in high-quality acetate, while the Japanese factories use the world’s highest quality titanium. The products made by this brand are objects of art which are not and will never be intended for the mass market. These products are devoted to people who are able to evaluate them and are looking for something really special and original. Frames are selected not with respect to suiting the client or his face shape but rather fitting his personality, lifestyle, movements and feelings. Anne et Valentin collections are meant for people who have their own free will, are open to the world and themselves, draw inspiration from everything that they see around them, and most importantly – are not afraid to explore themselves throughout their lives.
