First created in 1995, Face à Face glasses grew out of a passion for architecture shared by a small group of eyewear enthusiasts. One of them, Pascal Jaulent, the creator of the original concept behind the collection, dreamt of giving eyewear the power to reflect the character of the person wearing it. “Face à Face was designed to reveal the sense of the modern that’s in all of us.” Nadine Roth, his partner, felt that nothing could reflect the look that makes each of us what we are better than our own eyes.
Like an architect, Face à Face works with volumes, shapes, materials, colours and textures to give its glasses the power to express the personality of their wearer, whether that be bold, carefree, energetic, independent or even seductive. Each new collection is preceded by a research and design stage, resulting in new styles enhanced by innovative concepts and incorporating the latest in fashion.
Over the last 19 years, with a collection renowned for its creativity and its “Made in France” quality, the company has gained a strong foothold in the world market for designer glasses (80% of its turnover comes from exports), opened a subsidiary in the United States, set up a production and finishing centre in the French Jura region.
