Passable


Passable is a famous beach at St. Jean-Cap-Ferrat. Originally called “Lutétia Plage” and designed to accommodate guests from the famous and historic Grand Hotel du Cap Ferrat. The beach is west oriented on St. Jean Cap-Ferrat and offers a magical view on the harbor of Villefranche.

The beach is overlooked by beautiful palm trees and brightly colored flowers, and Plage de Passable truly implements the Côte d’Azur feeling that has been an inspiration in the creation of our Christopher Cloos brand. We have named our second frame after this enchanted beach and have implemented its aesthetic history into our design.

Inspiration from the Côte d’Azur


It is no secret that we are truly inspired by the style, environment and timeless summers on Côte d’Azur. Our fondness for the French Riviera comes from countless visits since we were kids. There are so many historic places, so many fascinating people and so much bon-vivant with a laid back style.

The details


Quality and exquisite details are things that we value at Christopher Cloos.

Our meeting with Christopher Cloos was a meeting with an original and stylish man who had a passion for good things and old vintage frames.

That is why we have chosen to use only the best materials in our products. Our models are vintage-inspired and made out of a premium acetate with CR39 polarized lenses. This is definitely not a low cost solution, but our goal is to be the state-of-the art within sunglasses – and we will never make sacrifices in regards to our quality. This is also reflected in our needle engravings, as we want to tell the story of a frame that has been handmade, nursed and hand finished.
