In the late 80s Optyl produced an impressive line by Paloma Picasso for ViennaLine. The black version was one of the favorite frames of french movie icon ISABELLE ADJANI.
One of her most famous movies was Luc Bessons SUBWAY with other legendary actors like Christopher Lambert and Jean Reno.
“Having stolen some compromising documents from a powerful and successful entrepreneur/gangster at a party, a man known as Fred (Lambert) escapes from the police and takes refuge in the underground world of the Paris Metro stations and tunnels. There he joins the dwellers and befriends several colourful characters, including others who are living under the subway to avoid police arrest. While the gangster’s henchmen try to find Fred, he develops a romance with the gangster’s young trophy wife Héléna (Adjani). She had originally invited Fred to the party featured at the opening of the film, and is bored with her gilded-caged life”.
