New vision for eyewear label
THE Saint collaboration between WA-born photographer Pierre Toussaint and AM Eyewear transpired out of a shared desire for superior optics.
As a leading fashion photographer, Toussaint understood the need for a precision lens and had the idea to create a range of sunglasses to raise money for eye research, having worked with the brand previously.
Three limited edition feminine shapes named after the idyllic locations of St Bart, St Tropez and St Lucia have been created and are available in multiple colours.
With the support of high-profile celebrities and models including Natalie Imbruglia and Jessica Gomes, a generous contribution of all lenses from this collaboration will be donated to Optometry Giving Sight, providing support to the millions of people around the world who are needlessly blind or vision-impaired because they can’t get an eye exam and corrective eyewear.
“Our ethos is simple – to design beautiful, unique and exceptional eyewear that makes a difference,” Toussaint said.
“With so much effort going into the design and manufacture of every frame, we choose to dedicate every design to the person who has inspired it.
“Our designs are born with a sketch pad and pencil, where all the aspects are meticulously brought to life.
“Our sunglasses are specially fitted with their highest quality Italianmade lenses, ensuring your eyes are protected while also looking their best.”
