Maison Bonnet

Fourth generation haute-spectacle maker favoured by the international jet set

5 rue des Petits Champs
75001 Paris,
M° Bourse

Le Corbusier, YSL and Jacques Chirac sourced their spectacles from this fourth-generation haute-eyewear specialist. Exceptionally, they still work with tortoiseshell for their signature frames (donating part of profits to tortoise preservation), but customers to thei atelier-boutique can nowadays enjoy more accessible buffalo horn and acetate models too. All frames are made by hand, with the bespoke service involving multiple measurements and a mild form of psychoanalysis!
