In the realm of fashion, the most successful design houses are thought by many to be spearheaded by a singular force, the Creative Director. This notion couldn’t be farther from the truth, even more so when it comes to accessories. There are many moving parts and components that constitute the extraordinary creations we see season after season. One such upstart who boasts its collaborative genius is the artisanal eyewear company, Rigards.
Named after the French word “regarder” meaning to look, Rigards is a line of eyewear to be on the look out for. Helmed by Jean-Marc Virard and Ti Kwa, Rigards offers beautiful, hand-sculpted designs made of natural materials such as genuine animal bone and horn that is unlike anything ever before seen.
Rigards manages to be unique without compromising the masculinity scores of men look for in a pair of shades. The texture of the genuine horn instantly screams luxury and elegance, in a sophisticated and subdued manner. When collaborating with the heavily Arabian inspired designer Thamanyah, Rigards carved beautiful lines around the lenses that added an artistic touch to a classic frame.
Owning a pair of Rigards sunglasses is the equivalent to a bespoke Tom Ford tuxedo, its feels like they were made for you and only you. They are unique and worth every dollar of their hefty price point. Their unmistakably natural sunglasses are for the forward thinking gentlemen of the future who appreciates subtle luxury.
