In 1979, Thierry Gros moves to the direction of Victor Gros and starts in 1985 the Traction Productions’s collection. The inspiration of Traction combines Californian modernity and French refinement in the objective to create unique eyeframes. The ideas of the creation are the product of a permanent exchange between Los Angeles and Paris, from this Victor Gros always anticipates the “avant-gardiste” tastes of his customers.
Traction is an association of shapes and colors without any restriction, these glasses are not a simple remedy to the vision problems, they have also the vocation to dress the face on the same basis that a luxury accessory. In a constant research of harmony with the faces, Victor creates glasses to make a great look without changing personality; they get inspired from “l’air du temps” of California, New York and Europe.
