AHLEM is a luxury eyewear brand founded by Parisian born, LA-based designer, Ahlem Manai-Platt. Distinguished by pure concepts, meticulous craftsmanship, exceptional materials and sustainable methods.
Rigorous attention to detail, insistence on exceptional materials, commitment to sustainable methods, and an abiding obsession with arts and culture combine to inform AHLEM’s vision. The timeless applications of early 20th century Bauhaus design principles are of particular resonance and serve as a consistent aesthetic reference.
Each pair of AHLEM glasses tells a story of artisanal expertise: Throughout production, glasses travel to three specialized ateliers and into the hands of nine skilled artisans, each with a particular craft passed down through generations. Maintaining a fierce loyalty to these artisans and preserving their knowledge and traditions is core to our mission.
With organic shapes and elegant geometries Ahlem offers designs that exist beyond trend in the belief that functional objects of superior design and quality are always relevant.
