The missed but not forgotten tortoiseshell specs by Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes just had to be repurchased.
Regular readers will remember that I went through a traumatic experience during a little over enthusiastic dancing at a New Years Eve party. I lost my beloved Bruno Chaussignand glasses. For months I had searched the streets and stalked the Internet for on the quest to uncover the perfect pair of tortoiseshell spectacles. I tried on countless frames but none of them felt right, that was until a good friend recommended Spex In The City to me. t was then, that the lovely proprietor, Gillian Caplan first introduced me to Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes and my ideal frames. Six months on and after growing fond of he latest face adornment, I wore them to a duuuurty warehouse party in Dalston in a moment of style over common sense. Of course I drank far too much bring your own booze and danced a little too hard. During a particularly raucous, audacious but ultimately disappointing move my glasses flew off my nose and in to the black hole that was the dance floor. From that moment on I have squinted and strained rather than wear any of the frames lying in the graveyard of specs located in the bottom drawer of my bureau. There was no replacement...until now.
The story of Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes is really the story of lifelong friends, Bruno Chaussignand, and Sandie Ortola. Their common passion for design and travel forged during a ten year friendship, which thankfully for us, inspired them to channel their creativity and excellence into eye wear. Rebuking current mass market production techniques, Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes hand-make each frame in France. These are then polished over three days to ensure a smooth and seamless finish, free from all superfluities. Lacquer is not applied at any time in production of the frames; all-natural materials are used to safeguard against potential allergy risks.
Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes take great pride in the exceptionally high quality of materials and workmanship that goes into producing each individual frame
It is obvious that Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes take great pride in the exceptionally high quality of materials and workmanship that goes into producing each individual frame. The moment I first put them on back in August last year I fell head over heels and invested in a pair. Over the course of the next few months I rarely took them off because I felt somewhat naked without them sitting astride my nose. Like all good frames, they became an extension of my face. So after a few months of scraping a few pennies together, I invested in another pair. My decision came in the nick of time because these are currently the last frames available in my desired style. I promise treat them with the respect that they deserve because I dont want to lose another pair!
My face is complete with these Bruno Chaussignand Lunettes
