Brigitte Bardot sunglasses collection
Seized by this mysterious character,
the house of François Pinton has captured the icon
to make it a model, a true source of inspiration.
It is then that two particular destinies meet:
that of a brand that is sensitive to legendary personalities,
and that of a star who is a symbol of popular culture.
From this meeting, a unique collection was born that
combines the past and the present in mythical frames.
Exotic and iconic,
CANCUN is BB's
Those sunglasses were inspired by the one worn by Brigitte Bardot during her visit to Mexico City
for the presentation of Louis malle's film "Viva Maria" at the French Cinema Week.
In this movie, filmed in 1965 in Mexico, she shoots alongside Jeanne Moreau
in sophisticated costumes created by Pierre Cardin.
Note the details like
the play of thicknesses on the hoops,
the key nose and the half-ring
that softens its shape.
the sassy Brigitte Bardot
This model captures the eyes
with its oversized square shape
and beveled contours that
emphasise the beauty of the look.
The contrast between the thin
acetate temples and the thicker
front makes it
a must-have in the collection.
In 1969, Brigitte Bardot
plays a pretty young woman
mischievous and capricious in the film
"L'ours et la Poupée"
shot in the Paris region.
The area inspired François Pinton this pair of sunglasses,
very seventies spirit,
which we see her wear in the movie.
Sincere and spontaneous
After covering the Madrague
with rose petals to declare
his love, Gunter Sachs will marry
Brigitte Bardot on July 14, 1966
in Las Vegas. From then on, Brigitte Bardot
travels to New York and then Tahiti
on her honeymoon,
wearing her sunglasses
which today inspire François Pinton
for his new capsule collection
in the effigy of the mythical icon
of the 50s to 70s: Brigitte Bardot.

straight shape matches
