Thierry Lasry

Thierry Lasry is a French designer who launched his eyewear brand late 2006. He redesigned sunglasses into a fashion accessory that is as essential as a nice clutch or a pair of stilettos.

He manufactures the frames with only Mazzucchelli Acetate. Each piece is imagined and assembled and directly inspired by the Lego in which Thierry grew up playing with. The flat fronts give retro-inspired shapes with 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 brilliant colours. 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.

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 consid ers each of his designs to be one of his “babies” and chooses to spice up the names of his creations with a touch of provocation.
