Gamine New York origins

In 2016, the seeds of innovation were planted when three friends, each hailing from diverse backgrounds – one with a passion for fashion, another with expertise in marketing, and Sergei Zubkouski, a visionary immersed in the vibrant art scene – embarked on a journey to redefine the eyewear landscape. United by a shared desire for creative expression and camaraderie, they found their calling in the most unexpected of places: eyewear.

The genesis of Gamine New York was born from two years of intense brainstorming, fueled by a relentless pursuit of a meaningful creative outlet that would bring their collective talents to life. Despite being newcomers to the world of eyewear, they embraced the challenge with unwavering determination and a bold spirit, ready to carve their own path and leave an indelible mark on the industry.

With a vision fueled by passion and innovation, Gamine New York emerged as a beacon of design excellence, pushing the boundaries of traditional eyewear with their daring aesthetics and meticulous attention to detail. Drawing inspiration from the dynamic energy of New York City's fashion scene, they set out to create eyewear that transcends trends, embodying timeless elegance and urban chic.

At the heart of Gamine New York lies a commitment to authenticity and craftsmanship, rooted in the belief that true beauty lies in the intersection of artistry and functionality. Every frame is a testament to their relentless pursuit of perfection, meticulously crafted with premium materials and unparalleled precision to ensure both style and substance.

Today, Sergei Zubkouski stands as the sole remaining founder of Gamine New York, carrying the torch of creativity and innovation forward as the brand's design visionary. A self-made artist from Belarus, Sergei's journey has taken him from Lithuania to Poland and ultimately to the United States, where he spent 13 vibrant years in the heart of New York City. Now, following his heart, Sergei resides in Paris, allowing life and love to guide his path as he collaborates with a diverse array of talents from across cultures and continents.

As he continues to write the next chapter of the brand's story, Sergei remains dedicated to empowering individuals to embrace their unique style and express their inner creativity with confidence. With innovation as his compass and authenticity as his guiding star, he invites you to join him on a journey of self-discovery and sartorial exploration, where every pair of glasses tells a story and every wearer becomes a part of their vibrant community.
