Chris-Craft is a truly American story. Born in 1874, it came of age at a time that defined the notion of American ingenuity. While Henry Ford was creating the first motorcars, his watercraft counterpart, Chris Smith, was developing the very first engine-propelled boats and skiffs. Today, Chris-Craft maintains its status of number 1 American luxury boat.
Throughout its rich history, a reputation for quality and style have made it the favorite of presidents, celebrities and icons of American affluence – names like Roosevelt, Kennedy, Vanderbilt, Morgan, Ford, Sinatra, and Hepburn.

Women Colour Design
Launched in 2002, this creative brand has become a must. Exclusively feminine, each M & G model is crafted and developed in our design lab. The colours and designs are inspired by the latest trends in fashion. The metal takes on the unexpected: hammered, 3D effects or fine lace.
Ines de la Fressange, born of a large French family, grew up in the south of France before finishing her studies in Paris and making her debut in fashion. She began her international modeling career in 1975, immediately filming on the podium for the greatest creators. In 2003, Inès decided to revive her brand, where she worked as artistic director and was personally involved in the whole strategy.
The style of Ines de la Fressange Paris is timeless and never conventional, it is that of a certain luxury where one enjoys the codes, reinterprets them, while remaining elegant and always joyful. Joyous Luxury is a very modern vision of luxury. Its universe is chic, creative and rewarding but willingly open and accessible, warm and with a touch of humor.
Emmanuelle Khanh launches a collection of glasses in 1972. In order to get the best, she starts working with the traditional workshops of Oyonnax (Jura, France) and imagines a line of oversized frames, which immediately becomes iconic. With Emmanuelle Khanh, glasses become fully a fashion accessory, the signature of an audacious style, bold and elegant at the same time.
EMMANUELLE KHANH PARIS promotes the French know-how by renewing, year after year, its collaboration with the traditional workshops of Jura, specialized in handmade acetate frames from one generation to the next. By encouraging this unique craftsmanship, the House chooses an aware, sustainable, and environment-friendly manufacture.
EMMANUELLE KHANH PARIS carefully selects its raw materials from suppliers who are recognized for their know-how and the quality of their products.
Beyond the brand and trends hides a woman of taste and talent, insatiable, demanding and inspired.
However, Nathalie Blanc has before all, the sense of the beautiful frame, delicate and refined which combines the perfect harmony between the eye, the style and the material.
As a teenager, the idea of shaking the uptight world of optical industry became an obsession. Don’t ever hide behind the glasses of others. To the point that she swore to create her own universe, to reinvent a style where the frames will be a change of everyday life, to be an object of passion, a partner of femininity, the ultra-chic fashion accessory, irreplaceable friend, alter ego.
Her avant-garde collection corresponds to an ideal of eyeglasses : exclusives models, subtle and colorful, that ‘enhance’ the look through a classic vintage or highly contemporary style.
The Nathalie Blanc Paris eyewear are from the incredible French know-how: all made in France in Oyonnax and in Normandy. With noble materials such as cellulose acetate
for our plastic models and nickel silver for our metal frames.
The quality is also found in the Carl Zeiss glasses equipped with anti-reflection, which allow a high protection of the retina.
