Stephane Christian is a Korean based brand that caters to the Asian demographic. They feature a mixture of bold and simplistic styles for both men and women in a vast array of different colour options. A mixture of both acetate (plastic) and metal (titanium) frames are available at mid-range price points ($200+ CAD per pair). Wink Optometry will be bringing in this brand as the first Canadian retailer! We want to bring the Korean craftsmanship and fashion to Vancouver and share what they have to offer. Being designed and crafted in Korea, all frames will have “Asian-fit” bridges or nose pads to ensure that the fit is optimal (very few of us Asians are blessed with prominent nose bridges to support frames that don’t have nose pads – thus the influx of North American and European brands creating “Asian-fit” options for some of their frames).
From the company: “French chic style combined with modern and retro includes an identity of Stephane Christian”.
Their logo is the Penrose Triangle that represents “time that never stops, endless challenge, and free imagination” that Stephane Christian embodies in their products. Wink strongly believes in freedom of expression through subtle details and intricate craftsmanship that Stephane Christian produces with it’s frames.
Many Korean pop stars, actors, and models have been seen wearing the brand as they continue to strive to produce unique pieces in the competitive eye wear market.
Here is a look at some of our favourite pieces!
Stay tuned to know when these beauties hit the shelves!
