Helene Blanche X Pared Eyewear
“I have always admired the clean and sophisticated design approach by Danish designers, especially in the furniture and interior fields. One of my favourite chair designs is by Hans Wegner (The Circle chair). When the opportunity to partner with Helene Blanche arose after a trip to Copenhagen I was beyond thrilled as I fell in love with her beautiful use of pattern in textiles. The tactile fabrics and bold use of colour are a perfect accompaniment to our eyewear,” says Samantha Stevenson-Baker, Creative Director at Pared.
In March 2018 Helene Blanche was asked by Pared Eyewear to design a new frame clutch exclusively for the Pared universe complimenting the STÆRK&CHRISTENSEN x Pared collection; a partnership with Danish duo, Helena Christensen and Camilla Stærk. Both collections was launched during Pared’s entry at Copenhagen Fashion Week in August 2018 hosted by The Jewellery Room.
The collaboration reflects Pared and Helene’s shared passions – their love of design, good craftsmanship, bold patterns and playful combinations of materials.
“Pared’s universe refers to an exciting style of old-world glamour and modernity, a contrast in style which I find very compelling. Therefore, it was such a great admiration to be asked by Pared Eyewear to complement their universe with a new frame clutch and also to be an ambassador at their entry in Denmark,” Helene Blanche
The collection of frame clutches has a compelling avant-garde and sophisticated elegance and a playful expression made in Helene’s bold Painted Stripe print accompanied with a lush lining in shades of dark aubergine and glossy orange.
