Caroline Abram eyewear is a beautifully feminine collection from Paris, “intended for all women who want to feel beautiful, sensual or just themselves”. These pieces of master crafted eyewear flirt outrageously with colour and seduce you with their bevel edges, curvaceous shapes and polished facets. Caroline mixes these assets together with elegant shapes inspired from the vintage sixties era that gave us cat-eyes and sleek sophisticated styling.
Caroline, who is optically trained, spent many years working in design lead optical stores and has been designing jewels and accessories for the eyewear market since 1998. She first met international success with her accessory designs for chains, magnifying glasses and the now little known object called a lorgnette. She has revived these accessories and remodelled them into pieces of jewellery with a functional value, making them both wearable and desirable.
Over the years Caroline has won four gold Silmo awards for her work and her reputation started to grow. The company trained a team of women in Dakar, where Caroline had spent most of her childhood and opened a workshop. They have now been manufacturing all Caroline Abrams accessory lines for the past fifteen years. Many of these fascinating pieces incorporate diverse materials such as silver, wood, resin and semi precious stones.
Throughout her career Caroline has travelled extensively and she found herself especially charmed by Florida and in particular the old fashioned vintage warmth of Miami. Inspired by the many interesting places she’d visited over the years, Caroline Abram launched her eyewear in 2008. The collection draws inspiration from the sixties, vintage and the old fashioned elegance and charm of south beach in Miami. Included in her collection are pieces displaying beautiful feminine cat-eye shapes with elegant twists of colour.
Each collection release is named after a letter of the alphabet, so within the ‘L’ release we have Lilian, Liv and Lucie and each model comes in up to six different colour combinations. The colour palette is tremendous, travelling around the colour wheel from classic black and tortoise-shell to red and fuchsia fused together. You can find acetate with beautiful sensual lines and bevelled edges which diffuses the light through the frame, bringing a new dimension to each colour combination. The metal collections bring a fresh, clean element to Caroline Abram eyewear and feature beautiful feminine shapes again mixing great colour combinations.
The collection overall is impulsive with elegant lines, fun, and with a stylish colour palette used with passion and confidence. Caroline Abram glasses and sunglasses are styled for ladies who are confident, in control, like to have fun and flirt whilst keeping their femininity.
