Caroline Abram - Parisian-born Caroline Abram, is a child of the trade. She created her first collection of eyewear accessories while she was learning the business in her family’s stores. “The market needs sexy and elegant eyewear that enhances the femininity of all women” and it was with these words that, in 2008, she launched the Caroline Abram eyewear collection, which was followed by collections for men and children. Her style is avant-garde, with cat eye frames taking the dominant role and unusual combinations of bright colors.

David Marc
The David Marc brand is the result of the encounter between David di Porto and Marco Efrati, one very heedful of details and subtle nuances of design, and the other, focused on Italian products and their quality, and both share a passion for original eyewear with fine finishes and trims. And this led to the idea of creating an eyewear collection that is handmade in Italy with a vintage flair – reinterpreting classic styles in camouflage plastic or metals with an aged finish.
