Pascal Mathieu

Pascal Mathieu’s elegant brushed-steel and aluminium sunglasses are handmade in France.  The brand runs an associated charity with collection points for skiers to donate their old sunglasses and goggles throughout the mountain range of Chamonix, Megève, Verbier and Courmayeur. Mathieu reconditions and then distributes them across remote Himalayan villages, where 80 per cent of the population living above 3,000m suffers from incurable ocular lesions. Sustainably luxurious, for every pair of new sunglasses sold, ten of the reconditioned pairs are donated.
