Carytown Optical Richmond Virginia is now the exclusive Anne et Valentin dealer of Richmond Virginia. Come by to see our collection of this unique artisan eyewear from France. Anne et Valentin make eyewear - it's in their blood. They believe a frame should not only flatter and complement, but express who you really are. The purpose of Anne et Valentin Eyewear is to express the essence of every individual through their choice of eyewear. Each time you put on your frame, you present yourself to the world just as you are.
Anne et Valentin’s sole existence is due to... Anne et Valentin. When these two forces of nature were struck by lightning during a chance encounter, Fate offered them a future, which they shared professionally and personally for thirty years, their hearts beating as one. The deeply united couple spent their lives nurturing and expanding their brand over time. In Toulouse, where the company was founded and where its headquarters still harbor the core of the team, the Anne et Valentin lively spirit has been an inspiration to many. The adventure truly begins in September 1980 when Valentin the neo-hippie obtains his optician’s degree. The two lovebirds are eager to start an optical store with a different approach than what is available at the time, with a unique selection of original, nondescript frames and a radically different sales philosophy.
For over fifteen years, they have designed frames in the spirit of a constant renewal of form and color. They combine savoir-faire with an equal mix of respect and anti-conformism, to create frames that never let you down. They create nothing that doesn’t already exist within you. The Anne et Valentin design process is akin to alchemy; mixing geometric cuts, brilliant colors and materials. Their collections reflect the paradox of spontaneity combined with meticulous design, and are available across Europe, the United States, Canada, Korea, Japan and beyond.
Anne & Valentin tirelessly cultivates its own singularity, listens to your insights and interprets your needs by responding with grace and precision. For the crafty, the serious, the self-confident and the free-spirited: Anne & Valentin works to create noble and radical eyewear in which you are delighted to be yourself!
