Pascal Mathieu is putting an innovative spin on sunglasses design with his eponymous eyewear brand. Founded in Chamonix Mont Blanc, France, the label creates handcrafted sunglasses using a skilled approach that mirrors the exacting precision of watchmaking—the capital of which is merely a stone’s throw away in Switzerland.
There are three different models in the Pascal Mathieu collection—aviateur, carée and ronde—and each is designed for unisex wear. The Pascal Mathieu signature comes in the form of a brushed steel frame that gives the sunglasses a sleek, industrial look and quality feel. Each frame is cut individually from steel and aluminium sheets and crafted into an uncommonly solid pair of sunglasses by skilled craftsmen at a family-owned factory in La Chaux-du-Dombief, France.
As part of an exclusive collaboration with Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, Pascal Mathieu has created a striking pair of Côte d’Azur inspired aviators that are available online and at the hotel’s Eden Being boutique. The aviators’ aquatic blue colour and sporty shape make them perfect for boating excursions or simply lounging by the pool. As you prepare for your summer getaway, think about protecting your eyes from the sun with a pair of precision crafted sunglasses with total UVA and UVB protection from Pascal Mathieu.
