The sunglass  styles of Parisian designer Thierry Lasry epitomize  the current  take  on  glamour.  They exemplify a balance between timeless good taste  and innovation.  The collection features ‘retro-futuristic’ forms which are elegantly sculpted from vintage acetates sourced from the venerated Italian supplier Mazzucchelli.

The soft edged and typically up-swept shapes are ample in scale yet well proportioned. They manage to  flatter the wearer’s facial features without concealing them.  The voluptuous fronts appear to float on the face and are gracefully supported by slender metal temples.

Thierry’s  use of unique colour combinations and patterns of  rare acetates warehoused  since the 1980’s  enhances the allure of his creations.  His ‘neo-vintage’  styles have been  produced in France since the launch of his line in 2006.  Thierry has also been the artistic director of his father’s ophthalmic frame line Harry Lary’s since 2002.

 Thierry Lasry sunglasses can be sourced in the worlds most prestigious contemporary boutiques including London’s Dover Street Market and Lane Crawford shops in Hong Kong.  In Toronto you are invited to appreciate  the collection at our Bayview  and Flagship locations.

In keeping with the designer’s ‘neo-vintage’  aesthetic, we  recently displayed his modern eyewear paired with  images produced by George Hurrell,  a photographer who made a significant contribution to the perception of glamour presented by Hollywood during the 1930s and 1940s.
