Ahlem Manai-Platt, a Paris native living in Los Angeles, has a long-standing fascination with the relationship between beauty, functionality and design. The culmination of her passions has resulted in the development of Ahlem Eyewear.
“I wanted my collection to represent the real Paris, a city that isn’t defined by brands or trends, but rather by the people – a mix of artists and intellects who work hard and hustle, yet who take time to relax and play as well.”
Every frame is named after a neighborhood in Paris and are as full of life and character as the area they represent.
Each pair of frames is entirely made by hand, with uncompromising attention to detail. Mazzuchelli and vintage acetates used are all hand-selected. Organic Divel Italia lenses provide superior UVA/UVB protection with built-in anti-reflective coating. Every pair of glasses is created with the utmost respect for material and process.
While the frames may look familiar at first, it’s the subtle touches that reveal Ahlem Eyewear’s signature: beveled temples, rounded edges and a finely-curved nose bridge invites an interplay between hard and soft elements, while a unique metal and rubber binding on the hinges adds stability.
