Childe was founded by Jon Laurenson after spending time in Portugal and being inspired by friend and renowned artist Mario Belem.
After visiting friends and manufacturers in Italy he returned to Australia to form a team and bring Childe to life in 2018
Jon’s experience in fashion eyewear spans 25 years as an original founder of Electric Visual and previously managing Arnette Optics in Australia during the late 90’s.
After 10 years pursuing other creative interests Jon felt it was time to make an exciting community driven lifestyle brand with eco-sensibilities.
His passion for Australian fashion and Rock & Roll draws inspiration to the design aesthetic of the brand
Jon has worked with our Italian design and quality control team across 3 brands over 20 years.
Our Italian hand made Eyewear products are premium fit and quality.
We trust you love your Childe
