Frame designer Jean-Francois Rey has added two new models to its 1985 collection of frames. Originally designed in the 1980s by the French designer, the new additions have been updated with modern materials and utilise today’s construction techniques to make a come-back. The rebooted frames are available in a selection of placid urban colourways, with both frame styles available as sunglasses for those looking to protect their eyes.
Imagine 0260 embodies the minimal design aesthetic, mixing pared-back thin grey minimalist rims with panto lenses. Slim temples belie a robust construction of metal, and the statement electric-blue double brow-bar adds a stylish flair to these otherwise stoic frames.
Lennon 0230 is sunglasses frame featuring the same metallic grey construction as Imagine 0260, with the panto rims switched out for perfectly circular lenses. The brow-bar again comes in electric blue, but becomes a single straight bar extending slightly over the centre of the rims to create a satisfying architectural look.
