One of a kind hand made frames by Christelle Trouble

Dear Shaded Viewers,

You know that I love story telling and I thought that you might be interested in the story behind the making of my one of a kind, hand made, Made in France beautiful new frames. I’m always into the process and so I asked the creator of the frames, Christelle Trouble, if she could send me some images to show to you. Christelle worked with the master of frames, Alain Mikli, for 16 years. We met at the atelier of Alain Mikli a few years ago when Alain created a pair of custom made frames for me. The pictures tell the story of how many steps go into the making of my Christelle Trouble for yours truly custom made frames, they are not necessarily appearing in the order of the many steps that go into the making of.  If you are an individual or a brand, you too can have bespoke frames.

The photo of me came from tonight on my first night out in them at the Kamel Mennour Gallery in Paris with the marquee by Philippe Parreno.
