Thierry Lasry Optical & Sunglasses
Thierry Lasry“the french eyewear whizz” (Elle UK) “the eyewear master” (In Style US) "the sunglasses designer the most loved by celebrities" (Elle Italy) “the king of trendy eyewear” (Jalouse) Thierry Lasry is a French designer born in Paris. He launched his eponymous eyewear brand late 2006. Raised in a highly creative environment by a father who was an Optician and a mother who was a designer, he has elevated the status of sunglasses and managed to redesign them into a fashion accessory that is as essential as a nice clutch or a pair of stilettos. As a VISIONARY, Thierry felt that craftsmanship and the renowned PARISIAN style mixed with groundbreaking designs would win over any women or man in search of honoring their strong self-identity. This idea is revolutionary in a fashion world obsessed with branding. Thierry Lasry is a product of the 80s culture, who blossomed with the joys of Playmobil, Lego and Japanese cartoons. Astroboy and Cobra were broadcasted religiously during that particular period on French television. In fact, this is how Thierry developed a passion for COLORS AND GEOMETRIC SHAPES during his childhood. He became quickly fascinated by the aesthetic of the exuberant and inspirational fashion shows of Claude Montana or Thierry Mugler which were electrifying the fashion scene of those days. Blessed with this background, He perceived SUNGLASSES AS THE SUPREME ACCESSORY THAT UNITES TOGETHER THE UNIVERSE OF FASHION,BEAUTY AND ARCHITECTURE. ENTIRELY HAND-MADE with the BEST CRAFTMANSHIP TECHNIQUES AND TRADITIONAL KNOW-HOW, the frames only use acetate from the reputable Italian manufacturer Mazzucchelli. The way each piece is imagined and assembled is directly inspired by the LEGOS in which Thierry grew up playing with. The flat fronts give RETRO-INSPIRED SHAPES - a FUTURISTIC TWIST. Most of the frames feature layered extra blocks of acetate on the back of the fronts using a process more akin to sculpture than to regular cutting techniques. Each design features CLEAR LINES, GEOMETRICAL SHAPES AND SURPRISING COLOR. There are no outside logos, the brand’s name is hidden from the eye,discreetly engraved inside the temples. The design itself should be the signature of each style. The Thierry Lasry customer is CONFIDENT has a distinctive style and likes a sophisticated shade of ELEGANCE. Thierry Lasry juggles with the Y’s at the end of each style name, “SEXXXY, ORGASMY, WAVVVY, GAMBLY etc.”as it is the letter found in both of the designer’s first and last names, and he considers each of his designs to be one of his « babies » … so choose to spice up the names of his creations with a touch of provocation. The world’s greatest celebrities have been wearing different styles throughout the years from the collection including: BEYONCE, RIHANNA, MADONNA, KATE MOSS , JENNIFER LOPEZ, NICOLE KIDMAN, USHER,TRAVIS SCOTT, OFFSET, FUTURE, RUSSEL WESTBROOKE, PJ TUCKER and many others.
