Horn eyewear born from a passion shared by two friends
A love for craftsmanship and natural materials unchanged by time
Why not give it a try? This is what Jean Marc Virard and Ti Kwa, two friends and passionate collectors of vintage eyewear, must have thought when they had the idea of creating their own brand. A love for craftsmanship and the use of natural materials – horn especially – that seem to be unchanged, or even improved, by time.
The various frames in horn, which must be "maintained" every three months with a special cream for the veining, have slightly old-school but intuitive lines and have acquired a well-deserved, excellent reputation.
Rigards (from the French "regard" or glance) frequently presents limited edition models moving away - conceptually, first and foremost - from mass production, in yet another reiteration of savoir faire that is rich in details.
And requiring many hours of work. Because it is primarily thanks to the long and meticulous creative process that this interesting brand can guarantee a good mix of comfort, practicality and design, which does not certainly go unnoticed.
