When Pierre-Hubert Pinon contacted me, it was for my experience as designer at Alain Mikli International and my collaboration with Tropique.
Pierre-Hubert has kids and when he looked for sunglasses for his 3 years old son he noticed that there were only two choices : fashionable sunglasses inspired by adults models (in fact adults scale-down models) not adapted at all for kids anatomy, or ergonomic models like Julbo's with poor finitions and style.
He decided to create his own brand and products with the idea of conciliating ergonomics and classical fashion "pantos" style with very good finishes and also French manufacturing; so he called out me.
My involvement :
- Art Direction
- Product Design
- 3D modelling
