Pascal Mathieux

Pascal’s casual outfit belies the fine details of his handmade Gold and Wood frames. This “H27” model is the Luxembourg brand’s version of the classic Wayfarer shape, crafted in marbled Buffalo horn, rich wood and metal. Though the materials are pricey, the frames are not pretentious, presenting instead a laidback elegance fit for everyday wear. The brand is also conscious to use sustainable woods, and horn from animals that have already been used for meat.

Pascal works in the eyewear industry and says he appreciated the quality of these frames, which are all made in-house. He also liked that they were a “fancier” take on the Wayfarer shape, allowing him to present a slightly more refined version of his casual self.
