Silmo Preview: Under the radar

Sunglasses Frames
Ahead of Silmo next month, Zoe Cosby looks at some of the less well known eyewear brands that are worth searching for at the event in Paris

The new collection by Jacques Durand is a sculptural work of love. Curva represents the embodiment of Jacques Durand’s design research and the mastery of its craftmanship.

Handcrafted in its Italian factory by highly skilled artisans, they carve into a single plate of 10mm Japanese acetate to achieve the desired ergonomic form. Production is carried out in its workshop and premises in Montecchio Maggiore, Italy, and transparent production is an integral part of the brand’s identity.

Each frame comes with a manufacturing card detailing the production process and lists each craftsman and manufacturer involved. The geographic location is also listed to guarantee traceability. This collection is just another example of the brand’s commitment to experimentation, artistry and design, so be sure to track it down.
