Growing up with an optician father and designer mother, it is no wonder Thierry Lasry opted to create stylish sunglasses for a living. His eponymous line debuted in France in 2006 with a goal of creating “futuristic vintage” designs that fuse ‘80s inspirations with modern yet avant-garde motifs. He excels in this niche realm as each pair of sunglasses are flat-fronted for a contemporary look while the silhouettes are breathtakingly retro. The mens and womens frames are all handmade with acetate from Italy, and they use a process more akin to sculpture than manufacturing.
Every pair is named with a word that ends with “y,” the same as both Thierry’s first and last name. This establishes an unprecedented connection with the designer and his designs. His creative pieces are an A-List star favorite as they have been spotted on celebrities from Kate Moss to Lady Gaga to Madonna.
