California-based eyewear brand RAEN offers up a new collection of luxurious frames, dubbed the “Fabriqué en France” collection.
The capsule features three of RAEN’s Essential silhouettes: the Remmy 49, Wiley and Norie. Each is hand-crafted in the mountainous region of Haute-Jura in Northeastern France. RAEN pays tribute to the artisans in the region, who have a long history of manufacturing eyewear.
For the collection, each frame boasts premium Mazzucheli Acetate. The 5-barrel hinges are sourced from Comotec in Italy and the lenses are Carl Zeiss CR39 sunless with Anti-Reflective Azure coating to minimize internal glare. Also, the frames are hand-finished in either a high polish or a rich, brushed matte.
Finally, the styles are available in three colorways: Noir, Fumeé and Arbois, and will be wrapped in special packaging for the collection.
The RAEN “Fabriqué en France” Collection is available now at the brand’s online store, retailing for $225 USD.
