guapard

Mr. Yamamura, the owner of SPEAKEASY, and Mr. Yanagihara, the owner of Fréquence., a vintage eyewear specialty store that sells only dead stock, have dealt with a huge number of French vintages. In addition, he is one of the few specialists who is well versed in French vintage, such as co-authoring the book "FrameFrance", which summarizes French vintages of the 1940s and 1950s, which were original and boasted the highest quality in the world.

Guépard is a collection that understands and expresses respect for the high design and essence of French vintage, where the only parts that need to be modernized are the size. I made it a price and a design.

Frame design, tags, oil paper, lenses (lenses at the time did not have multi-coating technology and the lens surface was reflective, so in order to improve reproducibility at the time, guépard custom-ordered a multi-coated flat lens on the back side. The surface is easy to reflect because there is no anti-reflection coating) is an element that cannot be expressed without knowing the background of the French vintage at the time, and it resonates with those who actually own the vintage.
