Eyewear Enthusiasts

Anne-Solène Guerin, Marketing Executive, Paris, France

21st August, 2011 “My fashion style is classical, yet not boring.  So I like to find clothes that have extra special details, or sometimes – in bright colours. Quality and good cuts are very important.  For example, if I’m looking for a raincoat, it’s usually Burberry, and I like designs by Catherine Andre.  I also like Renouard (www.maroquinerie-renouard.com) from Brittany.  With glasses too, I like something different.  I have a small face, and the trend right now is for big frames, but large shapes make me look like a fly! It was a problem to find small sunglasses, but when I tried on Lafont, it was – OK – that’s it! I didn’t know the brand before, and I really like the small shape. I love to sail and on the water wear Vaurnet (Anne-Solène in Vaurnet, shown above) with polarized lenses. The shape is great as it protects the eye area, and they are really designed for sport – they don’t move and fit well.” JG
