OPAL – Glasses creator and manufacturer
Created in 1995 by François Fort, the Lyon-based company OPAL is now the European leader in frames for children and adolescents as well as the French leader in the second pair offered by opticians. The company is expanding its brand portfolio to grow with its first customers and is logically developing in the adult market. Since acquiring a majority stake in Demetz in 2015, Opal has also pursued its growth strategy in niche markets by investing in sports frames. In 2019, it invested in French manufacturing through the launch of the Berenice collection. And in 2020, the launch of a new rock’n roll license, The Rolling Stones and a children collection Minions. Opal is also developing and expanding a range of services dedicated to professionals to make their daily lives easier.
A child’s soul. Since its creation, Opal has positioned itself in the children’s segment. Thanks to its creativity and its relevance in the choice of licenses, Opal has quickly established itself as a major player in the children’s eyewear market. The collections are structured around two main areas: fashion and entertainment.
TEENS & ADULTS
Growing up with our clients. Our teen and adult collections include licensed brands and Opal brands. They are available for both optical and sunglasses. They offer a wide variety of models in both size and style.
Reliable products at fair prices. Building on the success of its Owlet collection launched in 1999, Opal has expanded its offer by creating the OPAL DIRECT department, which consists of several fair-priced collections that meet the specific needs of opticians.
Perfect vision for sports. For more than 70 years, Demetz has been putting himself in the athlete’s position to improve his visual acuity, protect his sight and accompany him in his achievements. A mission that we are proud to continue with a collection of more than 150 different masks and glasses that are light, versatile and resistant.
