Ahlem Manai-Platt, a Paris native living in Los Angeles, has a long-standing fascination with the relationship between beauty, functionality and design. The culmination of her passions has resulted in the development of Ahlem Eyewear. Her debut collection consists of five designs, each capturing the essence of a particular Parisian neighborhood: encapsulates the soul of Paris in springtime – relaxed, elegant, playful. The Barbes embodies the excitement of a cultural melting pot… Sourcing rare vintage materials from France and the finest contemporary materials from Italy, Ahlem Eyewear is manufactured exclusively in Jura France. Ahlem’s passion for detail extends to the exquisite design of the cases, which, this season, includes a print by acclaimed Belgian designer Glenn Martens. If the eyes are truly the windows to the soul, surely they should be well framed?
