The mountain sunglasses new version!



December 2013. Lots of sunshine and fresh powdered snow, and Camille and Nicolas are about to make their first ski descent. Suddenly they realise that they left their sunglasses home. In this small ski resort only one shop still remains open. There they unearth a box filled with old-school glacier glasses, shells and leather cords included. With this model, it’s all about childhood memories:  The taste of the first snowflake, the apprehension of the first descent of the day, afternoon tobogganing with family, winter sports during the school break, the smell of ski-wax in the rental shops and pockets filled with chocolate bars. They buy two colored pairs of the vintage sunglasses and the day is saved.



He has designed eyewear and watches for Dior, Lacroix, Bally. Passionate about surfing, he also redesigned the Roxy eyewear collections, Quiksilver, O’Neill, Oxbow and Cébé . Today he stands on his own. French became the reference for the optical design of sunglasses and watches, and he is a “brand” itself that affixes especially on Kikies. Attracted as much by the original idea as he was the brands personality, Damien Fourgeaud immediately fell in love with the project: “I was born in 1980 and I had a very colorful glacier model. For me it was obvious to combine a very modern trendy style with the glacier style that carries with it a history rooted for years in people.”   He wears his Kikies listening to “Learn to fly” from Foo Fighters, “Hello” by Martin Solveig and “I feel just like a child” by Devendra Banhar.
