French designer, Thierry Lasry launched his eponymous sunglass line in late 2006. Raised in a highly creative environment by an optician as a father and a designer as a mother, Thierry Lasry went on to create a sunglass brand aimed at a certain Elite looking to distinguish themselves out of the crowd. THIERRY LASRY sunglasses are based on the concept of futuristic vintage, fusing vintage inspirations with an updated, modern and avant-gardist touch. The sunglasses are all flat fronted, giving a futuristic twist to retro-inspired shapes.
Entirely hand-made in France with the best craftsmanship techniques and traditional know-how, the sunglasses only use acetate from the reputable Italian manufacturer Mazzucchelli. By working out the volume, the acetate front is made using a process more akin to sculpture than to regular cutting techniques. The acetates typically undergo a process of layering–meaning textures are created by combining sheets of different colors one against the other. The eighties remain a key source of inspiration for Thierry Lasry, considered by the designer as an incredibly creative period. Having developed a style that is both retro and futuristic in vibe, Thierry Lasry creates highly graphic models by mixing vintage-inspired outlines with modern avant-garde details.
