We spotted The Spectacled alum and CFDA (Council of Fashion Designers of America) CEO Steven Kolb in Paris, wearing his newest pair of frames from Selima Optique. Steven met us at the CFDA’s “Americans in Paris” showroom, a stone’s throw from the Jardin des Tuileries.
Steven’s history with Selima Optique goes back to his start in fashion. When Steven started at the CFDA in 2006, he was wearing a pair of inexpensive glasses that he had purchased on Canal Street. Selima Salaun of Selima Optique gave Steven his first pair of “designer” glasses, as he needed frames that suited his new job in fashion. Nearly 100 pairs later, he is back wearing Selima with these new frames.
