Colored metal has always been part of JF Rey‘s story, part of his DNA. Explored in compositions that are always surprisingly inventive, the metal tells an idea, a story that sets collections apart season after season and allows Jean-François Rey to express the full extent of his know-how. Each collection is the opportunity for a new artistic experimentation, a new challenge that is more a pleasure than a creative or technical challenge. Keeping the imagination alive and taking everyone by surprise is the goal he achieves in particular through the use of bold colors and incredibly architectural constructions. An easily identifiable graphic power and visual strength come from the collection while challenging and characterizing the minimalist spirit of the frames. His very personal way of shaping metal, of structuring lines, imagining volumes or balancing colors opens up new perspectives in creation and allows the designer to offer innovative and modern alternatives, always featured into a great stylistic perfection.
JF Rey Spring 2021 – Simple minimalistic but decisive designs
This new collection introduces the idea of a committed vision in elegant and frankly assertive minimalism. It is driven by a desire for lightness, optimism, bold colors and creative, striking silhouettes. Nylor frames, semi-rimmed, or full-metal, the collection is as captivating as it is unexpected. It offers a wide variety of shapes and styles enhanced by new graphic combinations and ever more ingenious designs. Clean lines, graphic cutouts, architectural constructions, or airy volumes are carefully considered in order to obtain the most beautiful graphic effect, the most surprising combination. The sleek aesthetic of the frames conceals an extremely complex work that requires much technicality combined with a search for assemblies, geometric shapes, and color charts that bring the models their exclusive identity. Steel, stainless steel, aluminum or titanium, the designer highly considers the origin of the materials, striving to be always more selective in order to use only the best qualities, the lightest, the finest and the most resistant, and the most adaptable ones. He favors shaping of his frames in the workshops of the Jura, with in particular a colorization by hand and thus shows off the French manufacture of his newest collection.
