Grenoble, former capital of the Dauphiné, governed in the early 16th century by the Chevalier Bayard, the famous Knight without fear and without reproach, is now recognized as a major European scientific centre, especially in the field of nanotechnology. The city of the 1968 Olympics still displays its dynamism thanks in part to its strategic geographical position.
Located in the heart of the historic centre, 12 rue Jean-Jacques Rousseau, 2 doors away from where Stendhal was born, Le Petit Salon des Créateurs shop opened in late 2008. Bertrand and Sylvie, brother and sister and both opticians, have a common passion for eyewear, having worn eyeglasses since they were children. The frames are handmade from high quality materials such as leather, wood or gold, where the Dita and Thom Browne collections are exclusive collections of the town and are very popular with the insiders of the region. Nikon, the specialist in ophthalmic lenses were naturally selected to optimize the clients’ satisfaction. Creation and exclusivity for the frames, high resolution vision for the lenses are the keywords of the store.
