FACE à FACE
Free, bold, colorful – Face à Face’s style has a real character!
Far from standardized fashion diktats and conformist trends, each collection asserts its artistic temperament drawing its inspiration from the sources of Modern Art, architecture and contemporary design.
Designed & Handmade in France
Face à Face eyewear will reveal your individual personality and underline the boldness, the modernity, the seduction of an independent, creative object of design.
To embellish everyday life. To contribute to personal well-being. To catch the trends of the present time. Such is the Face à Face spirit. The various collections of eyewear and jewelry are designed along the themes of architecture, contemporary design and international fashion.
Like subtle little pieces of architecture, Face à Face frames surpass their function and enter into the sculptural dimension of the object. Even further: into the times of presences, encounters, exchanges… gazing into each others eyes.
DESIGN & CRAFTSMANSHIP
Face à Face frames are developed within the design studio directed by Pascal Jaulent resembling small subtle pieces of architecture, playing with volumes, shapes, material and textures. The frames express themselves through a unique color range which is a true Face à Face trademark.
Pure and truly contemporary lines, sensual volumes and colors, a refined sense of touch: the natural beauty of the eyes are fully revealed through the clear, graphic design of the frames. Face à Face designs diffuse audacity, glamour, a charming and pleasant, relaxed elegance, as well as a positive, altruist energy.
Signs of their time, the Face à Face collection reveals the individual personality of their wearer. The glasses become a narcissistic object that underlines its wearer’s personality and makes it unforgettable.
Each frame’s own design and stylistic evolution is motivated by its various functions. Indeed, beyond its basic purpose (to give everyone the ability to look at things clearly), a Face à Face frame is a guarantee of efficiency, of pleasure, of sharing, of style.
HISTORY & AWARDS
In 1995, Face à Face is created by Pascal Jaulent and Nadine Roth as a French eyewear design company, based on modernity and creativity without compromise. Face à Face is fabulous and French, high end, rich in color and expression.
The founder Pascal Jaulent has a passion for human and social issues and for ethnology and his dream was to become an urban planner. His studies at the Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (Paris Management School) led him to first join the financial departments of large companies (Nestlé, Dior ) before his desire to work for a smaller company was fulfilled as General Manager of Lunettes Lafont Paris.
He discovered the amazing connections between the work of an architect and humans as well as the technical and fashion components of creative eyewear.
In 2014, Face à Face becomes part of the “Design eyewear group”, where Pascal Jaulent advances to Chief Creative Officer (CCO) for all brands in the group.
