The collaboration unites AHLEM’s modern, minimalist eyewear with the PALAIS GALLIERA’s world-class fashion archive, in a partnership of extraordinary style
The Galliera is simultaneously casual and sophisticated, low-key and high-impact. Oversize, full-coverage lenses evoke the mystery, glamour and power associated with high fashion: these frames can shield the wearer from all intrusions, not just sunlight. AHLEM was also interested in conveying something subtler. The Galliera’s architecture—sculptural curves and softly inverted lenses—is plainspoken and unadorned, almost gentle. Minimalism is for the truly confident, because there’s nowhere to conceal poor craftsmanship or bad ideas.

AHLEM was launched in 2014 by Paris-born, Los Angeles-based designer Ahlem Manai-Platt.
Rigorous attention to detail, insistence on exceptional materials, commitment to sustainable methods, and an abiding obsession with arts and culture combine to inform AHLEM’s vision. The timeless applications of early 20th century Bauhaus design principles are of particular resonance and serve as a consistent aesthetic reference.
