With over a decade’s experience in the optical industry and extensive knowledge of the business, felt that there was an opportunity for a home-grown luxury optical brand to fill a growing gap in the eyewear sector.
As a buyer of the worlds most exclusive eyewear brands for his London based Iris Optical stores and website Alexis set up his eponymous eyewear brand in 2012 with a small collection of handmade sunglasses and spectacles.
Alexis designs glamorous, stylish pieces that were original, modern, elegant and most importantly, made with the closest attention to detail.
This first collection sold out and since then he has continued to sell his brand exclusively through his Richmond showroom.
5 years on the collection has grown, but his range continues to be made in small numbers and, quite uniquely, are hand finished in the UK.
