Saint Laurent Eyeglasses
Bold defiant elegance
High-fashion without following trends, Saint Laurent eyeglasses are as chic as they are easy to wear. Each collection is a refined selection of unique products underlined by high quality.
The man that started a style
Founded in 1961, Saint Laurent has had a massive impact on fashion but also on a wider social-cultural context. It is a name associated with an image of youth, freedom, and modernity. Founded by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, the first collections by the house rejected standards of the time and were characterized by masculine elements on women’s dresses. It was this fusion of masculinity and femininity that created some of the label’s most famous pieces: Le Smoking and the Sahariana. These pieces became symbols of possibility for women, connoting the idea that women were equal - a somewhat revolutionary idea at the time. This concept is ever-present in the eyewear design.
A master of mixing
Saint Laurent didn’t just blend gender, he was also one of the first to combine art with fashion, when he launched his legendary Mondrian line. The house is also noted for its ability to mix haute couture with the casual, helping the high-end to feel current. However, what the brand is truly brilliant at, is understated elegance: using simple shades like black and gold, and employing exceptional tailoring in all designs are the stylistic elements that create modern day classics.
I wish I had invented blue jeans. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity - all I hope for in my clothes.
Each pair of eyeglasses embodies this attitude. Lines include Classic, designed for people looking for glasses that are both contemporary and never out of fashion. The New Wave, instead, are for true fashionistas and are the definition of a cool, free spirit vibe, taking unique colors and shapes straight from the catwalk. Monogram are the most ambitious: these are iconic models and are the soul of the brand.
For those with a rebellious nature, set your maverick side free with these authentic styles.
