“I have always dreamed of embodying French excellence: extreme precision, undeniable quality, pure and timeless design.”
The force behind the brand is the daring, passionate and French-born designer Nathalie Blanc.
Nathalie Blanc is a true ambassador for the French manufacturing and excellence in know-how, and her talent exudes in the refined and delicate frames she designs, the ones that combine the perfect harmony between the face, the style, and the material.
“My collection is designed, developed and made in France”
At a young age, Nathalie Blanc started wearing glasses. The shape didn't fit her face, and the style was not graceful nor trendy.
As a teenager, the idea of shaking the world of eyewear had become an obsession. Nathalie made a promise to herself to create her universe, to reinvent a style where this functional and unattractive accessory would reflect one's style, personality, and aesthetics.
"I was so embarrassed to wear my eyeglasses, and this trauma has been pivotal in my life."
The attention to detail in her work and creations reflects her passion for art, design, and architecture, in which beauty and elegance fuse.
Her studies at ISO in Paris leads her to become an optician and to open two optical stores.
In 2010, Natalie Blanc creates collections for the ready-to-wear brand Michel Klein and in 2012 for Swildens.
