NATHALIE BLANC PARIS
Established in 2015, Nathalie Blanc Paris, the luxury brand of eyewear, rose quickly to set itself apart from the rest of the industry with its innovation, its impeccable craftsmanship, and the finest materials. Nathalie Blanc Paris collection is designed to match perfectly with the face's curves. The avant-garde collection offers a variety of colors in a subtle palette, delicate frames, and detailed temples, mixing tradition with a modern approach.
The winning design is described as a pure, delicate form, with particular care placed on every detail. Each frame features a distinguished two-tone detail at the end of the temples. With overtones of the 1970s, the frames have featured a delicate flash or graduated lens and sophisticated combinations of the French know-how.
The eyewear collection is made exclusively in France in one of the most prestigious factories founded by Jean Lempereur in the 60s combining the finest materials with high-quality design.
Nathalie Blanc Paris creates its own acetate plates. Noble materials are used such as cellulose acetate, made from cotton blossom and seaweed. The acetates are organic and recyclable and they offer an infinite possibility of colors, constructions and shapes. The particularity of this acetate is its extraordinary quality and breathtaking beauty.They often age them over thirty years to reinforce their solidity.
The lenses are also made in France. The solar glasses, signed by Carl Zeiss and Divel are equipped with anti-reflection, which allow a high protection of the retina.
Nathalie Blanc collaborates with Mazzucchelli acetate to develop artisanal frame series that feature layers of depth through the finest materials in optical. Cellulose acetate is a plant-based plastic that is hypoallergenic. This material was first used for eyewear in the late 1940's because of brittleness and other problems with previously used plastics. Today's acetates are known for being strong, lightweight, and flexible.
Insightful and innovative, Nathalie Blanc has, since autumn 2017, included an exclusive metal collection. Each piece of the frame is handmade. Elegant and sleek, metal glasses are the result of a complex and precise process.
Entirely manufactured in France, the frames are laminated in 22k gold, with stunning intricate detail, with the two-tone spatula on either ends of the temples.

A HANDMADE BRAND
A frame by Monsieur Blanc is designed to adapt perfectly to the features of a male face. This avant-garde collection will take up the same codes that made the success of Maison Nathalie Blanc: a sleek and elegant design, for timeless models with subtle colour varieties. The frames are delicate and detailed, mixing tradition with a modern approach.
All this combined with a 100% French manufacture in the most prestigious factories of the Jura and Normandy regions, allowing our frames to combine the best materials with high quality designs.
In order to diversify our creations, different materials were chosen for Monsieur Blanc.
A high-quality Italian acetate that Maison Nathalie Blanc uses with 8mm thick sheets, giving depth to the frames and conferring a lot of character. For this type of acetate, each part of our glasses spends a week in beech wood barrels and is then hand milled by our artisans in order to give them a puffy look and soften the edges of the frame.
A range of pure and beautiful colors, as well as a great rigidity. This rigidity is the result of a much higher resting time during its manufacturing process, allowing us to create thin frames with softer color gradients.
Our metal frames are bathed in 22-carat gold. The hinges and central temples are developed by the design team to be the absolute lightest and most comfortable for the wearer.
Beta-titanium temples and 3D faces
The custom-made Japanese beta-titanium temples are lightweight and strong but also flexible and adjustable. This brings to the frame unparalleled levels of comfort. Resistant to very strong heat as well as to the coldest temperatures, our 3D faces are made of bio-sourced materials, since they are composed of 70% castor oil. Furthermore, 100% of the material is used by the craftsman, allowing us to not create any waste. This material allows us to offer to the customer a pair of light and hypoallergenic glasses.
