ABOUT THE BRAND
During the Prohibition Era in the 1920s, the slang for glasses in the U.S. was "cheetah," the English word "cheetar" being replaced by the French word "guepard. During the Prohibition era, standard jazz was indispensable for uplifting people. Like the music that has been passed down as material for improvisation, the new interpretation of French Vintage is proposed, inheriting the high design quality of French Vintage and arranging it in a delicate way to match the atmosphere of today.
