Materials Make
 the Man

Men can keep their options open with these easygoing hues.




Jean-François Rey (ABOVE)

Jean-François Rey’s CARBONWOOD collection uses materials and stylistic effects for a sophisticated and strong look that gives men a pared down look and a modern attitude. Casually elegant, the JF2899 focuses on aesthetics with its choice of excellent materials; cut from plates only 3.5 mm thick, they are made up of thin sheets of carbon and wood welded together by a natural resin paired with a flex hinge. Mixing the codes of vintage with contemporary design, woody hues and soft harmonious color schemes enhance the simplicity of the shape and give the model an assertive, graphic quality. MSRP: $570.
