In 1996 Xavier Derome launched his first range of eyewear and accessories. He set up his workshop in the Sologne region, 2 hours from Paris near the town of Chambord. Passionate about arts and nature, XD mixes up styles and materials. His frames are 100% made in France and are refined, authentic and quirky. The superposition of acetate sheets has without a doubt become our trademark. Playing with colour and design leads to infinite combinations : transparent, metallic, animal themes.
Most of our acetate cellulose sheets are exclusive to us, the complexity of the colour combinations being yet another distinguishing feature of our creations. XD's collections carry simple shapes and shine through details. The choice of a manufacturing process totally based in France is not incidental. It allows the brand to reassert its claim of quality and authenticity, with attention to detail remaining paramount.
