Le Marais’ graceful curves—composed of half-raw cut, half polished acetate—suggest poetry and architecture in equal measure. Refined sculptural details, including a step motif across the midline and the romantic silhouette at the top of the bridge, draw inspiration from the work of Constantin Brancusi, while the pronounced pantoscopic tilt gives this petite, bold square style a lift.

With proper care, AHLEM’s heirloom-quality eyewear will bring you years of use and pleasure. Extend your frames' longevity with a few simple maintenance rituals:
Daily Clean: We recommend that you clean your lenses daily with our premium microfiber cloth versus cotton or paper products.
Weekly Clean: Apply a few drops of mild soap to your fingers, lather them underwater and massage soap foam to your lenses and frame. Complete the ritual by rinsing your frame and lenses in warm water and dry with your microfiber cloth.
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.
