Anne et Valentin
In 1981 Anne et Valentin opened a small frame shop in a beautiful location in the historic 15th century city of Toulouse in the south of France. Quickly, they discovered that the frame selection in France at the time was very poor. The only way to improve their selection for their customers was create, design and manufacture their own collection.
The first small collection was of colored acetates which debuted in their own shop and also with a few early adopter opticians internationally. In 1994 the first titanium frames were introduced.
Today Anne et Valentin is sold in 20 countries in the finest boutiques. Still, it is a small company, employing under thirty people globally.
“We want people to have pleasure in choosing a frame, where this choice is usually difficult.”
The frames embody a timeless beauty and strength with a chic, modern bent.
