The design of our frames aims at offering the greatest comfort. We conscientiously spare no effort in the design process.
FLAT FRAME FRONT
Jacques Durand conceives pure shapes with distinct outlines. Light and matter are the design playing field — flat frame fronts and clearly defined edges enhance the outline of the shapes. Flat frames front enhances the play of light on the surface.
CLEARLY DEFINED EDGES
Each frame goes through a time consuming process in order to achieve such clearly defined edges. Each frame is hand polished by our craftsmen and craftswomen with the utmost care, ensuring clear-cut outlines.
In designing the temples, we have conceived a unique curved shape that makes the frames suitable to different facial features. Temple bending is made by hand to achieve the perfect gentle curve and provide a firm fit.
PADDED TEMPLE TIPS
We have fine-tuned the fitting of our temples, and developed a padded design for the temple tips. We have achieved the ideal thickness to provide a firm fit and support. Temple tips are designed to lean against the mastoid for a comfortable fit.
The exclusive design of our nose pads makes sure weight is properly distributed to offer the greatest comfort. Each nose pad goes through a time-consuming hand-finishing process to meet our standards of comfort and quality.
In our work, every little detail matters. Adjustable hinges ensure secure connection, providing smooth movement and anti-loosening effect. Teflon is included in the mechanics to enhance performance.
Jacques Durand frames are constructed out of Italian premium cellulose acetate known for its durability and flexibility. We make sure to source the finest materials, and to use non-toxic products in the finishing process.
Our frames are extensively and carefully finished by hand, enhancing the play of light on the surface. Either in the brushed or the polished texture, each frame is finished by hand through finely tuned gestures, gained patiently over time.
Our frames feature Jacques Durand logo, in an understated way. Logo is placed in the lower side of the temple. To feature our logo, acetate is engraved and, in most cases, filled in orange — Jacques Durand signature color.
