The François Pinton eyewear saga began during the Roaring Twenties in Paris: Robert François Pinton, gifted artisan jeweller, managed the prestigious Maison Meyrowitz.
The high society of the time was rushing to Paris, New-York and London’s boutiques, where Robert François Pinton befriended movie stars such as Marlene Dietrich and Cary Grant.
After the second World War, he operated at Saint Germain des Prés and befriended numerous personalities from the renascent, abundant and creative "Tout-Paris" (Marcel Pagnol, Sacha Guitry). He signed his first exclusive collections for the international elite with the mythical "Jacky O", handmade for Jackie Kennedy Onassis and decided to create "la Maison François Pinton” in 1953.
In the 60’s and 70’s, Dominique Pinton, son of Robert François, launched iconic models for the "Côte d’Azur" jet set, such as the Monaco, created for Grace Kelly.
François Pinton eyewear became the symbol of the Dolce Vita and French excellence in spectacle manufacturing.

*Created in 1875 by Emile Bruno Meyrowitz, the company is nowadays one of the oldest tailor-made optician in the world.
