The Le Chelle is a retro-inspired frame, with subtle cues from an iconic glass worn by Hollywood royalty in the 1980's. Crafted completely with hard density cellulose acetate and with signature 18K gold plated lens rings. Featuring intricate, wire injected temples with a fine filigree detail.
Introducing Le Chelle
INTRODUCING LE CHELLE
We have always been massive film buffs here at Vieux. Watching and re-watching both iconic and underground classics, quoting every line and obsessing over every detail.
Inspired by the iconic frames worn by Michelle Pfeiffer in the classic gangster film, Scarface, we created the Le Chelle.
Filigrees: A lessor known detail
When creating our luxury eyewear, we are in a constant state of pushing the boundaries of traditional design. Adding a subtle, yet unique element to an all acetate frame, without detracting from the beautiful finish was the vision for our latest style. This led us to craft a stunning filigree detail into the hand-sculpted arms, creating a simple, luxurious element that adds depth to the piece.
