STYLE: The bold and the beautiful: Our pick of Anne et Valentin’s winter collection
Want to make a statement? Anne et Valentin frames are your go-to choice. They’re a whole lot of fun, big on colour, unashamedly rebellious—perfect for the artistically inclined and rule-breakers alike. Here, Taank stylist Leanne chooses her top design-led picks from this Toulouse powerhouse to have you turning heads in the high street.
MODEL: LET’S DREAM
The bottom half of these beautiful little rounds put us in mind of a honeybee with their golden flecks of light offset by a bold solid colour on top. The arms provide another layer of subtle contrast and together, they’re a dream when paired with autumnal tones. They’re just incredibly likable (is that strange?) and versatile, too. They’ve definitely got us buzzing.
Be transported back to the ultra-glam 90s with these playful yet pulled-together frames in translucent aqua and white acetate. A masterpiece in contrast, they’re striking but sophisticated and thanks to clever nuances in thickness, these hexagonal beauties remain fearless and resolutely feminine.
MODEL: NIGHT CALL
Daredevils take note, these retro aviators exude more energy than the cast of Fame. They’re Studio 54 and Top Gun all mixed up in one delightfully decadent design. Just look at that electric blue, which positively sizzles against the contrasting red ‘pockets’! Like a disco diva, these frames demand attention. They look beautiful on cooler skin tones.
Like an impossibly poised hostess who oozes elegance from the tip of her shoes to the crown of her perfectly coiffed ‘do’, these geometric frames are effortlessly glamorous. Strong, angular lines pair with beautiful stained glass, semi-translucent detailing along the rim. These bold 80s-inspired acetates look stunning against darker or olive skin tones.
Tortoiseshell and flattering pumpkin hues soften these oversize octagon frames that look great on square face shapes. It retains the impact of any geometric design, but the rounder style is decidedly more romantic and easier to wear. A unique frame for a unique individual.
