Classic is being true to yourself. It means being honest with what you value.
At Jacques Durand we are committed to excellence, and craftsmanship is the way we want to achieve it. Our spirit of creative craftsmanship finds fulfillment in the synergy of goldsmiths’ crafts and the heritage of eyewear manufacturing know-how. Each particular craft brings technical accomplishments, improves quality of details, and broadens our perspective.
CURVA speaks the language of sculpture.
It represents the quintessence of Jacques Durand’s design research and the mastery of our craft.
Our skilled artisans work from a single-piece 10 mm thick acetate plate, carving the solid mass of material to achieve the desired ergonomic design of the inside of frames. Like a sculpture, the work develops as an organic whole. Gold plated hinges complete the frames.
