RIGARDS

RIGARDS IS A COLLABORATION BETWEEN TWO FRIENDS WHO SHARE AN APPRECIATION FOR HANDMADE CRAFTSMANSHIP AND THE CLEVER USE OF HORN IN ANTIQUE GLASSES. AS LIFELONG FOUR-EYES AND AVID COLLECTORS OF UNIQUE VINTAGE FRAMES, JEAN MARC VIRARD AND TI KWA SAW A GAP IN THE MARKET FOR THE KIND OF FRAMES THAT THEY WANTED TO WEAR - HORN-RIMMED, ECO-SENSITIVE, NONCONFORMIST - AND SET OUT TO FILL IT WITH RIGARDS.
