ACETATE

We are constantly searching for the latest innovations in quality and technical design in an endless pursuit of perfection.  Vieux utilises cutting edge HDCA Acetate. A hard density iteration of the widely used cellulose material. This pliable yet highly stable acetate can be cut in smaller, more intricate designs, allowing us to create such intricate pieces as the Sanctum and Visage. 

Multiple styles feature a complete acetate design, hand sculpted and individually inspected to meet our meticulous  specifications. The incredible stability of HDCA acetate ensures these frames have a "memory" and maintain their shape.


HARDWARE

Design should not compromise style. It is this philosophy that drives the hardware selected for our luxury eyewear. Several metal frames are plated in 18K Gold and Rose gold for an illustrious finish. Every design features our signature temple tip detail, perfectly matched to the colour and design of the glass. Each screw is rubber-dipped to ensure lasting stability.

Several styles feature our German ultra soft, silicon nose pads, each embossed with VX detailing.




LENSES

Our lenses are constructed from CR39, a resin with incredible optical quality without the typical drawbacks of glass. CR39 is lightweight, scratch resistant and highly impact resistant. To further increase impact resistance our lenses are rock hard coated, ensuring the highest level of quality. 

ANTI-REFLECTIVE COATING

We back coat all our lenses with an anti-reflective coating that reduces the light that can enter through the back of the frame and bounce into your eye. This helps reduce glare and creates a greater level of comfort and optical clarity


HINGE SYSTEM

All Vieux frames utilise Italian Comotec hinges. These hinges are built to last and can be tightened / loosened to ones personal preference. All acetate frames feature highly robust 5 barrel hinge, bridging the gap between adjustability and design stability.
