Anne et Valentin
Anne&Valentin’s sole existence is due to... Anne and Valentin. When these two forces of nature were struck by lightning during a chance encounter, Fate offered them a future, which they shared professionally and personally for thirty years. The deeply united couple spent their lives nurturing and expanding their brand over time. In Toulouse, where the company was founded and where its headquarters still harbor the core of the team, the Anne&Valentin lively spirit has been an inspiration to many. The adventure truly begins in September 1980 when Valentin obtains his optician’s degree. The two are eager to start an optical store with a different approach than what is available at the time, with a unique selection of original, unique frames and a radically different sales philosophy.
From day one, rather than trying to adapt the customer to a frame, Anne and Valentin opt for a deeper comprehension of who their customers are - how they move, live and think - in order to find, for each, the perfect frame, dedicated to the customer’s unique personality and particularities. In 1984, they launch their first collection, named Anne et Valentin. And while their creations are original, colorful and lively, they are, above all, objects that combine ergonomics, technical requirements, and respect for those who wear them.
