Ahlem Manai-Platt

On intuition and eyewear. Words by Bella Gladman. Photography by Jean-Philippe Lebée.

Forget the age-old polarity between commerce and creativity. For Ahlem Manai-Platt, founder of the eponymous luxury eyewear brand AHLEM, “there’s no distinction”—it’s all about trusting your intuition, be that when hiring, designing or making business decisions. Manai-Platt is confidence incarnate—as she says herself, “I never questioned whether I’d succeed.
