Born in collaboration of Fean Marc Virard and Ti Kwa, two friends, both vintage frames collectors, both passionate for materials, textures, patterns and meticulous details, Rigards is absolutely one of a kind brand that amazingly succeeds to be ultra-traditional and ultra-modern at the same time, eternal at some point.
Handcrafted using time-honoured methods and manifesting the return to the original virtues of materials, mainly horn and copper, Rigards becomes the life-long possession that transforms as it ages. You'll find yourself caring about, as like it is a living thing (seems it really is). A small box with wax is provided with every horn pair to prevent it from over-drying, and natural patinated copper items evolve slightly different depending on how you live and how long you enjoy them.
Rigards passion is contagious. Every season brings us a new striking collaboration with like-minded designers, such as Ziggy Chen, The Viridi-Anne or Uma Wang.
