The history of the Anne & Valentin brand is a big love story, started in Toulouse, France in 1984. The two loving hearts, two opticians with a keen passion for glasses craftsmanship, decided to create a unique brand through a revolutionary process of customizing the eyewear based on the wearer’s preferences and lifestyle. Named after its founders, Anne & Valentin is considered to be the pinnacle of French luxury and modernism. From the humble beginning, the designers were focused on making frames that would be not just a fashion statement, but a signature trademark. In this way, they create frames that are both sophisticated and eye-catching.
The family business began when Valentine received his optician’s degree in 1980 while Anne improved her creative design skills. She also got interested in technical aspects of eyewear-making, as well as ergonomics and customer personalization. That unbeatable combination of painstaking craftsmanship and exclusive styling brought their first collection incredible results and has continued up to the present moment. Today, Anne & Valentin offers over 1,000 frame styles, each of which pushes the boundaries of the eyewear industry. What is their secret to success? An emotional and energetic connection with their clients’ needs.
