Watch the French brand encapsulate the energy and artistic influences of Marseilles in a creative and colorful patchwork of acetates


Master of Eyewear design, Monsieur Jean-Fran├žois Rey has made colour and graphics his very personal (and differentiating) way of expression. His free mind and creativity uses an independent and unique approach. The latest example for this is his new URBAN COLLAGE collection: a line of 3 acetate models inspired by Street Art and its colorful mural frescoes, all kinds of graffiti that liven up the alternative districts of Marseille, such as the very famous Cours Julien. The designer encapsulates the light and the artistic excitement of this cosmopolitan city in the South of France, home of the J.F. Rey Showroom. Watch his singular and intuitive interpretation here below.


Composed of 12 pieces with very feminine lines, the collection stands out for its collages of acetate materials, artfully achieved on the face with an asymmetrical and diagonal lamination technique that shakes up the classic codes of the acetate frame. The technical complexity goes together with an extremely meticulous stylistic research based on the individual selection of each color, each shade and pattern of acetate plates. The materials fit together into a sophisticated artistic patchwork, while offering an artistic and contemporary crossbreeding where colours and prints find a new energy and bring a new emotion. 

The design is focused on the subtle and detailed refinement of the materials, as well as the choice of vibrant and bright colours. The use of various tortoise shell shades in graphic combinations and contrasting styles add an assertive, distinctive and modern look to the models (JF1493 9030, JF1494 9545, JF1495 9545).
