EYEWEAR

Francois Pinton

Handmade in Paris since 1953 and always at the forefront of the latest eye wear trends, this eyewear fashion house drew the attention of celebrities such as Jacky Kennedy, Aristotle Onassis and Cathterine Deneuve in the 50s and 60s.

 

Having created the iconic eyewear looks of the famous, the third generation of the Pinton family is still hand-making elegant shapes today, some of which have graced the eyes of Nicole Kidman in her recent role as Grace Kelly of Monaco. It was reported that Grace Kelly herself demanded 20 pieces of Francois Pinton glasses and sunglasses on her wedding day to the Prince of Monaco! Now that’s an eyewear addict.

 

If you’re after a timeless and light frame, many of which are built for smaller faces, this is the collection for you. Think French, think Francois Pinton!
