A spectacle-maker’s style 

« Glasses give a signature look ». Nothing predisposed Valérie Carlotti to take an interest in the world of spectacles, except perhaps her insatiable curiosity and sharp aesthetic sensibility, but her establishment, a stone’s throw from Place Saint-Sulpice, has been here for 7 years now. Valérie has created a creative, original « spectacular » universe where her teams are trained in the art of deciphering: style, attitude, beauty criteria, personality, habits of interacting, tendency towards discretion or making an impression… All of these elements inform the customer’s choice for the ideal pair of frames. Guided by her passion, she knows better than anyone how to unearth new talent, and her boutique stocks no less than 20 designers of spectacles from around the world. Buoyed by her experience in fashion and design, this former employee of Goldman Sachs has also put her name to her own range of made-to-measure glasses, manufactured in her own workshops. A pair of sunglasses that suit you so well you’d like an identical pair for reading? She adjusts the size of the bridge and the lenses, chooses the shade of rims and arms and works her magic. She even takes the time to add a secret touch! Delicately hidden on the inside edge of an arm, there’s a space for a secret message where lovers can write their highest declaration of love, or, for the more distracted among us, an email address or telephone number! Ingenious! A visit to 40 rue Saint-Sulpice is an experience of both discovery and pleasure. Carlotti has created a new way of seeing spectacles!
