Jacques Durand, the French Eyewear Maestro
Spike Lee really likes his thick, bright frames. you can see him wearing these unique French glasses everywhere. The cool eye wear is created by Sir Jacques Durand and is rather obscure collection in the US. Jacques Durand is a well established industry veteran and is an incredible designer who manages somehow to combine the edgiest shapes and funky colors into almost conservative and very normal, wearable frame. Being involved into something from the conception to production is not many modern frame designers have on their resumes. Jacques Durand has done it all. He was managing the production of Alain Mikli collections before striking as designer on his own. The Eye Spot carries a large selection of Jacques Durand frames.
