Jacques Marie Mage

Loewy : Vintage Tort

450,00 €

Jacques Marie Mage is a maker of rare, collectible spectacles that combine historical motifs with precious materials, innovative production methods, and ethical business practices. Crafted with the highest level of manufacturing prowess and tested with the lowest tolerance standards possible, Jacques Marie Mage products are designed to last a lifetime.

This pair is adorned with precious metal hardware, custom tooled of either silver or gold composition. Each piece created by their Japanese manufacturer requires intricate tooling using the lost wax casting method followed by hand polishing techniques. In this ancient process dating back hundreds of years, each motif is cast in rough form, then polished by hand, and antiqued one piece at a time.

Over the course of his 50-year career, Raymond Loewy, aka the Father of Industrial Design, streamlined everything from cigarette packs to spacecraft, a technique he defined as “beauty through function and simplification,” an apt description for these refined modern spectacles inspired by the idea that one should never leave well enough alone.

About Jacques Marie Mage

Maker of rare, collectible spectacles that combine historical motifs with precious materials, innovative production methods, and ethical business practices.

J.M.M. is a design-centered luxury sunglasses brand founded by Jerome Mage. Based in Hollywood, CA., Jacques Marie Mage is specialized in the micro-production of premier quality, limited-edition eyewear for a clientele of discerning tastes. Uninterested in abiding by present-day design conventions, their debut collections of inspired spectacles embrace a unique palette of precious materials, rich colors, and striking geometric forms, all of which cleverly reference and beautifully reconfigure the artistic movements and world events of previous centuries.

In addition to their preoccupation with heritage, J.M.M. is equally committed to the well being of their craft and craftsmen. All the products are created using fair and ethical production methods to create eyewear that ultimately presents a forward-looking take on visual empowerment.

Jerome Jacques Marie Mage

Over the last two decades, Jerome Jacques Marie Mage has been quietly shaping the direction of action sports and luxury product design. Moving to Los Angeles at the age of 20, the French-born designer opened his studio in 2001, and presently works with a varied and loyal clientele. Known for his keen eye and sartorial flair, Mage’s latest venture, Jacques Marie Mage (J.M.M.), is a small-batch, limited-edition eyewear collection that reflects the designer’s matured vision and refined aesthetic vocabulary, one that boldly reconfigures influences ranging from Art Deco to American Folk to La Belle Époque.

Philosophy

“Individuality is an inalienable right, an idea that demands its own unique expressions. Our mission at J.M.M. Is to empower people to make personalized impressions, by offering spectacles that are unparalleled in their commitment to craft and creativity.”
