Monsieur Blanc, a collection made exclusively in France and dedicated to men. The frames are raw and masculine yet delicate and elegant.
MASCULINE DESIGNS WITH A MODERN SENSIBILITY

Monsieur Blanc uses the codes that made Maison Nathalie Blanc successful: a pure, elegant and timeless design combined with a 100% French craftsmanship realized in our Jura and Normandie regions.
Monsieur Blanc combines world-class craftsmanship with advanced production methods, embracing an array of rich materials, bold shapes, and an exuberance of attitude to create impeccably crafted spectacles that elegantly infuse men’s traits with a modern sensibility.
16 masculine designs embodied by Hugo Marchand, star dancer of the Paris Opera Ballet.
With Monsieur Blanc, Nathalie Blanc offers men timeless, functional and unique glasses that perfectly lend themselves to their faces.
GLASSES HAND MADE IN FRANCE
A design language that combines a respect for men, craft and technical innovation.
Powerful and meaningfully original, Monsieur Blanc offers sophisticated statement pieces infused with a distinct perspective, eyewear informed by a design language that combines a respect for men, craft, and technical innovation, ultimately resulting in 16 pairs of glasses that pay homage to the past while pushing the aesthetic into the future.
In order to create a variety of designs, different materials were chosen for Monsieur Blanc. Some frames are made of Japanese and Italian acetate, some are dived into a 22 carats gold bath, and others more innovative with 3D eyes wires and tailored Japanese beta titanium temples.
A high-quality Italian acetate that Nathalie Blanc uses with 8mm thick sheets, giving depth to the frames and a lot of character. For this type of acetate, each piece of our lenses spends a week in beechwood barrels and is then hand-milled by our craftsmen to give them a puffy appearance and soften the edges of the frame.
A range of pure and beautiful colors, as well as great rigidity. This rigidity is the result of a much higher resting time during its manufacturing process, which allows us to create fine frames with softer color gradations.
Our metal frames are bathed in 22-karat gold. The hinges and center arms are designed by the design team to be as light and comfortable as possible for the wearer.
Beta-titanium temples and 3D face
The custom-made Japanese beta-titanium temples are light and sturdy, yet flexible and adjustable. This gives the frame an incredible level of comfort. Resistant to the highest heat and coldest temperatures, our 3D faces are made from bio-sourced materials, as they are composed of 70% castor oil. Moreover, 100% of the materials are used by the craftsman, which allows us to create no waste. This material allows us to offer the customer a pair of light and hypoallergenic glasses.
