Only a select few eyewear labels can look back on a storied tradition like GOUVERNEUR AUDIGIER. Back in 1878, Clément Gouverneur established his first factory in the town of Morez, deep in the French Jura region, with the goal of manufacturing eyeglasses at the highest level of quality. Even today, almost 150 years later, this type of attention to craftsmanship and the long history of excellence are palpable in every single model released by the brand. That’s also because manufacturing still takes place in the exact same workshop in the town that is now the capital of the French eyewear industry.
Despite its traditional background, GOUVERNEUR AUDIGIER is far from resting on its laurels or stagnant when it comes to new impulses. Instead, the French label is open to blending more than a century of experience with new, innovative impulses while working with luxe materials such as gold, titanium and leather. The eyewear line-up is divided into two collections: In the premium luxury collection Gouverneur, the designers are playing with the full bandwidth of contemporary designs and elevated accents. And in the more fashionable and youthful GOUV/AU collection, the shapes offer a special twist and include several delicate frame designs as well as daring interpretations of chic panto frames. Something for everyone!
