Conservatoire International de Lunettes, Italy

406 by the Milanese label Conservatoire International de Lunettes features a brave combination of acetate, metal and wood. They have several other shapes using this combination and their work on the frame and the finish is carefully studied and executed – in Italy. 406 is a particularly feminine, and glamorous design, with a curvaceous form in acetate with the wood inserted in the brow piece at the front so you can see the contrast in the materials from afar. I had the good fortune to meet the team behind the label on the train to Parc des Expositions from central Paris….delighted to discover their work for the first time.¬†www.conservatoireinternationaldelunettes.com CN
