When you’re Kendall Jenner, with the world of fashion at your fingertips, and you choose to wear something on repeat, it’s worth noting on our part. Case in point: the model’s vintage-inspired wire-frame sunglasses, one round style and one squared-off aviator style, that can often be found adorning her face. The maker of these cool, unique shades? None other than Los Angeles–based eyewear brand Ahlem. The label clearly has Francophile roots, with a Parisian native at its helm, each frame bearing the name of a neighborhood in Paris, and bragging rights of being entirely handmade in Paris.
Ahlem’s signature construction includes a few details that set it apart from the pack: “Beveled temples, rounded edges, and a finely curved nose bridge invites an interplay between hard and soft elements, while a unique metal and rubber binding on the hinges adds stability.” With a plethora of modernized retro frames featuring special details and a high level of craftsmanship, we think these lenses are worth the splurge.
