Anne & Valentin is a brand born of the wild dream of two opticians from Toulouse, a town in the South-West of France. The couple, looking for graphic and original frames for their friends, decided to create what they couldn’t find. Today, still driven by our independence and our familial state of mind, we continue to develop a vision that embodies our research, fuelled by the highest standards and our love for the object itself.
In the Anne & Valentin creation studio, our designers cultivate a permanent thinking process where design plays a central role. We constantly question ourselves, finding ways to redefine lines and volumes, rethinking the relationship between reliefs and face, drawing on the myriad artistic expressions that have left an imprint in history. Our frames, our visuals, our interior design and the furniture in our stores are the results of our work and the concrete manifestations of our ideas.
Their story evolves with each individual who crosses our path: friends, customers, strangers encountered in the street, emerging or established artists. From their personalities – deep, curious and surprising, who differ, in age, style, genres… to art, in its many shapes and forms – architecture, photography, plastic arts, fashion, cinema, everything is a source of inspiration to our creative flow. Everything is movement. Everything is transformation. Everything is colour. Everything is matter. Our curiosity is infinite.
