Vontélle was founded in 2019 to satisfy the demand for vibrant, fashion-forward eyewear. Each of our products and accessories are designed to pay homage to our African ancestry with traditional colors and patterns that channel our African, Caribbean, and Latino heritage. Our patterns use many textiles and designs from highly identifiable, recognizable and respected materials like mud cloth and kente cloth. These designs are tailored to empower humanity to see the world through cultural and global lens.
Vontélle translated from French means "there she goes," or "to go." Our head-turning eyewear designs work to ensure this level of command in every room. "You GO" style. Our products are meant to empower you to walk confidently in this world: at work, at play, for every occasion. Vontélle's roots run deeper than fly eyewear. Our commitment to celebratory cultural and global designs was born out of a need to find designs that represent global textiles, boldness and beauty.
Additionally, Vontélle works to address the vision health disparities in deserving communities of color. Each year, we commit a portion of proceeds to furthering vision support services for children.
Vontélle is partnering with WIN (Women In Need) a New York City organization with 11 shelters to provide proceeds and eyewear to women and families in need.
Win is the largest provider of shelter and supportive housing for homeless families in New York City. For more than 35 years, Win has provided safe housing, critical services, and innovative programs to help homeless women and their children rebuild their lives and break the cycle of homelessness.
