“Les Belles Lunettes“
It really is true…everything does sound more romantic in French. Les Belles Lunettes, or beautiful eyeglasses, are what we have come to expect from the Anne et Valentin collection out of Toulouse, France. The colors, the lines, and the dynamics of Anne et Valentin eyewear consistently reflect that French sensibility of style and romance. That certain something, we say. Or, je ne sais quoi.
Gabriel Gestin of Anne et Valentin had such a great time with us last year that he is making a return visit to Specs Optical. If you missed him, here’s your chance. On Tuesday, February 28th 2012, from 10am to 7pm, Gabriel will be showing the Anne et Valentin collection in its entirety. It really is tremendous to see Anne et Valentin in all its glory.
Par usual, we will be offering coffees, cappuccino, and lattes along with some French-inspired treats (no, not French fries). Gabriel is looking forward to seeing you all again and meeting some new friends. So, stop by anytime. Feel free to contact us with any questions at 612-374-2114 or firstname.lastname@example.org .

Below are a few pictures from the day. Check out the fancy spread of croissants, breads, wine and cheeses that John put together. Will we ever forget that imported smoked hand-carved ham? Not anytime soon…

—Wednesday February 3rd, 2010— Noon to 7pm
All of us at Specs Optical are excited to announce that Elizabeth Faraut of LaLoop and Gabriel Gestin of Anne et Valentin will be here with their entire collections on display!
It is an extremely rare occasion that the entire Anne et Valentin collection will be available for viewing outside their own family run shop in Toulouse, South of France. Anne et Valentin frames are all-at-once clean, colorful, sculptural, vibrant, and unique. It is not uncommon to hear us describe them as “show-stoppers.” The right Anne et Valentin piece will compliment and accentuate your identity…a style all your own.
And after you pick out your beautiful new Anne et Valentin specs, why not compliment them with a handmade LaLoop. Designer Elizabeth Faraut created LaLoop out of necessity as an alternate to old-fashioned granny leashes (you know…the ones the dangle to either side of the face). LaLoop, worn as a necklace, is a must-have for anybody wearing sunglasses, multiple pairs, readers, etc.. If there is always a place for your specs, you won’t lose them, right? Sterling silver, gold, and bronze loops are paired with leather, shell, horn and tortoise acetates, semi-precious stones, and wood. Styles range from clean and simple to downright couture and have been prominently featured in Cosmo, Allure, Instyle, and Elle…to name a few.
Elizabeth and Gabriel are looking forward to meeting and playing with all of you. If you’d like to make an appointment to sit with one or both of them, please give us a call @ 612.374.2114 or drop us an email. Otherwise, stop by anytime between Noon and 7pm!
