Cabrio Sun

Brand Profile

When Style Meets Sophistication : The Cabrio collection is the first eyewear collection designed by Bieke HOET, the designer and manager of the family owned Hoet design studio in Bruges, founded in 1997.

Brand History

It all started with one model: the Cabrio Firebird (visor + sunglasses in one piece). Initially, this solo model was integrated as a playful item to enhance the Hoet eyecatchers collection. The actual Cabrio collection together with the successors of the Firebird was founded in 2009 – a natural development of this first design.

Brand USP

Taking a different direction than her father Patrick Hoet, Bieke studied interior designer. During the first 10 years at the HOET design studio, she was occupied with everything but eyewear design. She developed a furniture collection, was responsible for the booth layout during eyewear events, founded and enhanced the Hoet eyecatchers collection with new designs and, in addition to new products, she realized several projects as product manager for her father.
