I love my glasses by Paulino Spectacles, because they are produced by hand in Portugal with quality materials and with enormous attention to detail. Likewise, Maison Bonnet has a beautiful collection of carefully made glasses produced in France. Founded in 1950 by Robert Bonnet, the French brand started its journey in the thirties, when his father Alfred specializes in making frames in gold and shell. In 2000, the founder's son, Christian Bonnet, received the prestigious distinction of 'Maitre d'Art', joining the very exclusive circle of 74 craftsmen representing French savoir-faire in different areas of craftsmanship. Currently being run by the fourth generation of the Bonnet family, the Maison has always stood for respecting tradition, resisting fads and maintaining its reputation in creating quality eyewear with a timeless design, as evidenced by the glasses designed since the fifties for figures like Le Corbusier, I. M. Pei or Yves Saint Laurent. With the mission of fitting glasses to the facial anatomy of each client, Maison Bonnet's service includes dozens of measurements and steps to be completed, a real demand for excellence.
"Taking pride in exceptional craftsmanship and a rich history, custodians of the rich traditions that have conferred on them the title of Maitre d'Art, Maison Bonnet invented 'luxury eyewear'"
