About Us

Our story starts here…

Founded in 1950, luxury eyewear brand Van de Velde combines the finest worldwide craftsmanship with irrefutably luxury style brands. Since its establishment in fashion’s halcyon days, the brand’s signature creativity has been applied to sunglasses and optical frames with their trademark numbered brands.

For decades, Van de Velde frames relied, in part, upon their reputation being dripped and whispered within style and fashion circles like verbal quicksilver. Considered bastions of iconic eyewear, Van de Velde design brands continue to grace many of the most recognisable faces in the worlds of fashion, art, design, music and film. Today, Van de Velde is the fashion optical online store which is reputated for his quality, service and selective brands.

Almost since the very beginning in 1950, Van de Velde has been working with lenses from Essilor, the global market leader in ophthalmic lenses and ophthalmic optical equipment.
