Already making a name for themselves, newcomer Ahlem Eyewear debuts their first collection of metal frames. The styles continue the brand's appreciation for all things French as every one of the frames are handmade in Jura, France. The styles come in two aviator-style silhouettes: the more angular Concorde and the round Bastille.

The thin, lightweight wire frames come finished in white gold or brushed rose gold and features a ceramic nose bridge, flexible hinges, and a temple tips that encircle an acetate button. Both frames feature Christian Dalloz Cridal flat lenses which are also produced in France.

$450, available online at Ahlem Eyewear
