French Designer Jean-François Rey is a 1980s enthusiast and reminisces with fondness about those years when he first made a name for himself as a creative designer of sunglasses and specs. Today, his eponymous line includes the 1985 collection – highlighting emblematic revisited classics of this significant decade in fashion as well as some creative styles that point to this particular passion and influence.
The most recent addition is the Limited Edition JF2910SL – a concept frame with an inventive design inspired by tennis wear of the 80s, and more specifically the sport’s retro visor cap.
This metal model offers a round retro eye shape with a top bar which wraps around the front. The “peaked structure” appears to rest on this bar shading the eyes with a layered solid and textured construction.
The style is available in raw urban tones of ruthenium, black or khaki finely highlighted by hand in electric tones which add to the innovative sporty design. A range of related designs include an optical version – JF2910SL – (pictured above) and the minimal JF29120016. For more information: www.jfrey.fr
