ANNE & VALENTIN X PIERRE-LOUIS MASCIA
For this new Limited Edition, we’ve invited PIERRE-LOUIS MASCIA – PLM, for those in the know – inside the ANNE & VALENTIN Creative Studio. The PAROLES concept is the result of our respective universes meeting with, at its core, a love for culture and for the city of Toulouse.
As if dipped in Jacques Prévert’s ink, the JE SUIS COMME JE SUIS frames are inspired by intense playfulness and, more specifically, the powerful text Je suis comme je suis, meaning “I am what I am”, made famous by French singer Juliette Greco. I am what I am has inspired many performers, amongst whom the great Gloria Gaynor.
These three models, each available in three colors, are meant for the truthful souls out there, who enjoy cultivating doubt, who love to tell stories and who, with ferocity and panache, see humor as the quintessential salt of life.
From the very start, the intention was clear. The round shape, the ultra-presence of color… To ensure the execution of such ambitious models, we needed another kind of know-how, of the phenomenal kind, that of the Japanese. Only in Japan can you hope to achieve such precision in workmanship and detail work. Japan also has the very best titanium.
The cases and boxes of this Limited Edition were created according to the iconic patterns and colors of PLM, with prints that characterize his research for uniqueness.
