Virtual products showcase: Glasses designer Jean Philippe Joly’s passion and commitment to unique handmade design is always apparent in his collections which tell a story of inventive creativity, savoir-faire and high artisanship. The designer is a self-confessed detailist with an eye for colour and sculptural aesthetics. His limited edition styles are popular with artistic individuals and have recently been worn by Natalia Vodianova, the Russian model/entrepreneur.
Above: the ever popular cat eye has a new “soft” look in this new entry by Jean Philippe Joly (model Jalouse) which would have launched this month in Paris : vintage turquoise acetate fitted with 24 hour delicate custom aqua sun lenses. A small wave detail on the side of the frame front and nicely formed hand-finished bevels are a finishing touch in this individual design.
Model Producteur by Jean Philippe Joly returns to the collection in new colourways : this frame has custom blue lenses for 24 hour wear. It has a discreet “depression” in the 8 millimetre Mazzucchelli acetate on the sides of the front and on the shiny polished temples. Real rivets are a typical “hallmark” feature of these designs.
The choice of quality acetates by Mazzucchelli in Italy and the highest standards yet traditional manufacturing methods results in a refined design product of uncompromising quality.
