The soul of the createur
This season, FACE Á FACE creates a bold, futurist universe teeming with transformation and metamorphasis. Pascal Jaulent, Co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, with his team of artistic designers, explore the alchemy between neon, transparent iridescent colors. The newest collection from FACE A FACE reveals precious materials crafted with prismatic reflections and bright resonances. Together they form a new cosmos of stellar dimension.
With new concepts such as YAYOI, KEITH and BAHIA, deconstruction is always at play. Each defines a new interlocking theme of the distinct construction elements of a frame - embedded within another to form a mysterious puzzle.
Further defining the collection are the use of lines as a graphical element. Circulating from one concept to the next, each loses itself in a labyrinth of MAZES as highlighted in BOCCA LEMON's eye, the discerning fold in HOLLOW and suspended within the design of TADAO. Experience the latest creations from FACE A FACE: an exclusive gallery of bright, graphical concepts where material and style interweave seamlessly.

The virtuoso NILUDO 2 is crafted entirely from bronze and expertly fashioned by the “crème de la crème” of French eyewear makers. These unique specs are inspired by the works of Nils Udo, best known for creating ephemeral artwork in nature. Poetic and sophisticated, the new addition to the NILUDO collection pays homage to FACE À FACE’s fascination with the Land Art Movement. Playing with abstraction and gravity, this model is an exercise in delicate minimalism, with bronze in place of wood, chiseled metal, and a frame as light as a suspended artwork. Crafted with techniques such as thermal hardening and branch-stamping, the bronze NILUDO yields strength, flexibility and is painted and polished by hand for an impeccable finish.
