Designer Glasses Inspired by French Art and Culture.
I’ve always found inspiration in French culture and art when creating designer glasses.
Among those who really stood out for me was Serge Gainsbourg, a French culture and fashion icon.
His style and talent are legendary, from being an accomplished jazz pianist, to poet and singer.
He also loved painting and art in general.
Gainsbourg was disillusioned as a painter, as he lacked talent.
He never actually considered himself a great artist and was seeing music as a “minor” art, as opposed to painting that he saw as the “major” art.
But he was a great musician and “provocateur”, breaking norms and embracing the sexual liberation movement in the 60’s and 70’s.
His life was filled with beautiful muses from Brigitte Bardo to Jane Birkin who were some of the most famous fashion and pop-culture icons at the time.
Gainsbourg himself has been described as an unlikely sex symbol and fashion icon, noted for his sharp suits!
The Parisian house in which Gainsbourg lived from 1969 until 1991, at 5 bis Rue de Verneuil, remains a celebrated French culture shrine.
Creating designer glasses and frames is an artistic process that finds its roots in different art forms and mediums.
Serge Gainsbourg's art is part of L’Écurie Paris cultural heritage and a great source of inspiration!
L’Écurie Paris offers a range of designer sunglasses for men and women as well as prescription eyeglasses.
