Alain Mikli: Unique French Designer Eyeglasses

About

If there were an eyewear wing in the Louvre it would almost certainly be filled to the ceiling with the work of Alain Mikli. Born Alain Miklitarian in 1955 in France to an orchestra conductor and a dressmaker, he was always destined for the artistic path. He later went into optic school to learn the mechanics and functioning of eyewear. It wasn’t until the age of 23 that he discovered he had a passion not for the functionality of eyewear, but the aesthetics of them.

At this point in Mikli’s life he began his own company to focus on driving the ideal that eyewear is not meant as a simple prosthetic, but as true “jewelry for the eyes.” An ideal that has been proven correct by the overwhelming success of Alain Mikli. Today the Alain Mikli brand can be found everywhere from Paris to New York.
