AHLEM is a luxury eyewear brand founded by Parisian born, LA-based designer, Ahlem Manai-Platt. Our frames, designed in Venice, California and produced in small batches in the atelier community of Oyonnax, France, reflect a design philosophy that is centered around the relationship between simplicity, beauty and functionality. Never influenced by trends or bound by seasonal restrictions, at AHLEM, we design just as our artisans produce, organically.
Our line is inspired by Paris ; its architecture, energy and most importantly its people. With each frame named for a neighborhood, train station or distinct city street ; the collection embodies the unaffected air of undone Parisian style. Our designs reflect the discrete ion and understated elegance of a well-edited wardrobe, and our frames are meant to be worn only as extensions of our client's personality. Our aesthetic embodies Parisian savior-faire, drawing never-ending inspiration from the city streets.
