REVIEW: Leader in French Market Polette Glasses and Sunglasses

I was recently contacted by Polette about featuring the brand on my blog.  Of course from the moment I learned Polette is one of the number one eyeglass and sunglass brands in the French marketplace, and Polette is opening up in North America, I immediately jumped at the opportunity to introduce you all to them.  I've always considered the French to be so sophisticated and ultra chic and couture in terms of their flair for style, so it is no wonder Polette is such a dynamic and popular stop for all types of eyewear by people from all over the world.

Polette is an online store that offers absolutely sensational French designer style eyeglasses and sunglasses.  You will be captivated and intrigued by the designs and styles of the eyeglasses and sunglasses.  They are some of the sleekest and most innovative designs I have ever seen, truly unique masterpieces in the world of eyewear.

Let me briefly introduce Polette to you all because I know you are going to be just as impressed and allured as I was when I first discovered them:

{Adapted from the Polette Website}

Polette.com is born from a man’s vision, a man who decided to put an end to the monopoly of optics. No more expensive eyeglasses. His idea? Break up the chain of intermediates and offer, using the internet, a massive selection of frames and lenses provided by his own factories.  The revolution is launched and upsets the field of French optic as we know it.

Meet Pierre Wizman, a young and one of a kind entrepreneur who decide to quit school and build his first company - bought up for a peppercorn rent - in France, at the age of 16. “Starting from scratch might have been the biggest chance life has offered me.” Quite determined to create and innovate, he invites all of his employees to improve their difference and follow a path no one has ever followed before.

With the help of Pauline Cousseau, his associate, he launches the first website in August 2011. They learn to do everything by themselves. In October of 2011, they make their first sale! As of today, they still remember the name of this very first customer.

Within a couple of months, the sales overshoot and the medias seize this social trend that is the inexpensive glasses.  Many television coverages on polette.com are aired on French channels.  Do it different - The office grows up under this motto. The advertisement campaigns are reflected by the founder: provocation, humor and humanity are evidently on the cards.


A new mean of distribution

Polette lies on a simple yet groundbreaking idea: being the only intermediate between the factory and the customer. The frames and lenses are provided straight from our workshops, there is no stock nor intermediates to high margins.

The lowest prices on the market

Factory prices! With such a business model, L’usine à lunettes by Polette offers highly-competitive prices- no compromise on the quality-. This concept allows an 80% discount on the usual optical invoices, offering frames from $9.99 to $49.99 and lenses from $9.99 to $89.99.

A range of original frames

Introducing frame glasses from our own workshops and no brands, we distinguish ourselves from the traditional pattern. With a huge variety of designs, the purpose is to allow anyone to afford style and quality (e.g the frames from ‘Collection’, exclusively made out of acetate and handpolished). The website is a journey through the highlights of the eyewear, with retro and vintage designs, from classic to eccentric.

The laboratory and the lenses

We offer a huge range of quality single-vision and progressive lenses, as well as transitional lenses for every possible corrections.  All of the lenses are anti-reflective and anti-scratching.  Some have very important RX for every strong corrections!  In our laboratory, our opticians take good care of your lenses from their conception to their shipment.  They work on assembling the lenses on your frames.


The awesome folks over at Polette sent me three different sunglasses to review.  They offered me the opportunity to choose between eye glasses and sunglasses and since I do not need eye glasses, I decided to select some really couture sunglasses to introduce you to.  I cannot say enough genuinely felt high praise about the sunglasses I received.  So without hesitation, I highly recommend you consider these three ultra hip styles as a new addition to your sunglasses collection, or better yet, surprise someone special with a new pair as a holiday gift!  They are sure to be amazed and wow'd by them as I surely have been.  

Price:  $22.99


Transparent / Plastic

NOTE:  if you order the pair with corrective lenses, there won't be the mirror effect ; the lenses will be tinted with an 85% brown shade. Reflection is the gaze of the summer. You cannot go through summer without your Coachella Brown. Thin lines, light as a feather, trendy as hell, the perfect accessory for the perfect summer. Go for those crazy shades !

Also available in these two colors:  


OK, these are my most favorite of all time sunglasses that I have ever worn! I think I have owned over a hundred pairs of sunglasses in my lifetime, so that is saying a lot!  From the moment I laid eyes on these Coachella Brown sunglasses online at the Polette website it was love at first sight!

With a price point of only $22.99 and a shipping cost from overseas to USA of only $4.99 you too can own them in 15 working days.  Yes, that is how affordable these ultra couture sunglasses are and with just a pinch of patience, give them a chance to cross the pond to America, you will be able to feel the vibe of coolness that I am experiencing from wearing them.  I have been grabbing for these sunglasses when my mood is lively, flirty, carefree and I want to be noticed!  They make me feel young and energized!

I cannot express the very fine quality that the sunglasses are rendered in.  They are not the tiny but flimsy, no sir.  If I did not know better, I would think they were a pair of $200 and up high end designer shades, that is for sure.

Each pair of sunglasses arrives housed in a soft microfiber bag and you also receive a very cool Polette lens cleaning cloth.  How fabulous is that?!

If this super hot pair of Coachella sunglasses has not impressed you, let's move on to another very sleek style that I want to make sure you discover:

Price:  $45.99


The Rubis B.S is gorgeous. Take a look at the thin details, we change the color this time for a different classic chic attitude.


Remember one of Tom Cruise's first movies Risky Business and he wore those Black Ray Ban sunglasses?  Well, that is what these sunglasses remind me of.  Inspired by the look, they are finely tuned and they are oh so distinctive and edgy.  I have been enjoying wearing these so much and they are equally as superior in terms of their meticulous construction as the Coachella Brown sunglasses.

I am wearing the women's version of the Rubis B.S and they fit so very comfortably on my nose, ears and face.  I cannot say enough positive praise about them.  I do change my sunglasses like I change my jewelry, shoes, handbags, because to me sunglasses are a vital fashion accessory.  So when my mood is to be calm, cool and collected, these are the pair of sunglasses I am going to grab to fit that feeling of the moment.

And finally, a very intriguing and unique pair of magnificent sunglasses:

Brown Wood
Price:  $45.99


Here comes the wooden trend ! Kanpai is 100% all made of walnut wood. Enjoy the polarized lenses for the maximum comfort possible. Careful : this pair cannot be conceived with corrective lenses.


Over the past several months I have seen some brands and styles of sunglasses that are crafted from real wood.  I have been drawn to them, thinking how unusual and different they look.  I had been considering getting a pair, I just had not gotten around to it yet.  So when I stumbled across these splendid Kanpai brown wood sunglasses from Polette, they really caught my eye!
First let me say that the wood is so soft, you almost cannot detect it is real wood.  But don't be fooled, it truly is real walnut!  These sunglasses are the mercedes benz of sunglasses, the creme de la creme so to speak.  They are superior, outstanding, truly fascinating sunglasses!

They are not heavy in spite of the fact they are created from wood.  They are lightweight and feel 'normal' on your nose and ears.  They are classy and stately and have that hint of mystery and intrigue to them.  When I feel inspired, like I want to go out and take on the world and accomplish something exceptional, these are my 'go to' sunglasses.  It is fun to have sunglasses to wear to match your frame of mind, to create an aura about your so you can feel great, protect your eyes, and add that element of style and pizzazz to your daily look.  

I hope my review has captured your attention and leads you to want to explore Polette further.  These 3 styles of sunglasses is only the tip of the iceberg,  They offer hundreds of styles and designs to choose from, for men and women.  And, they can guide you through the process of ordering eye glasses as well.  

I highly recommend considering Polette for your holiday gift giving this season, or as a gift for someone throughout the year.  And, why not choose a few new styles of sunglasses or glasses for yourself so your look never gets boring!  It is fun to wear glasses that are from another country that you know not everyone else is wearing.  You can be a trendsetter, a trail blazer and let everyone wonder where you got them, wink wink!

This concludes my review.
