Vue dc

Vue dc is Frederic Ferrant and Christian Mascre of France.

They are veterans in the eyewear business and decided to, as Frederic said in an email, “create a collection inspired by people from a time where the craftmanship was really in the hands of true craftsmen. …with our modern perspective on eyeglasses inspired by the past …We wanted to recreate an atmosphere and also develop a uniqueness.”

Every frame is handmade, hand polished and finished.

Here are my favourites:

“We didn’t want to compromise on the craftmanship and we decided to use thicker acetate sheets to create some volume and a bold statement for some styles.” – Vue dc

“They are a true vehicle of communication for the wearers. They are as important as an old watch or some antique furniture.” – Vue dc

Oh, and Frederic tells me you will be able to purchase them from the wonderful Silver Lining!

They’ll also be at the Vision Expo in New York later this week.
