With an optician for a father and a designer for a mother, fashion eyewear was clearly the route destined for French designer Thierry Lasry. He launched his eponymous brand in 2006. His creations are based on the concept of ‘futuristic vintage’ and it’s his ambition to create eyewear reflecting that style.
As well as running his own company, Thierry has also done a handful of collaborations, the most high-profile of which are with Swedish brand ACNE (SS11 Men & Women), Warner Bros for Colette (DC Comics 75th Anniversary June 2010), Thai brand Sretsis (SS10), music band Liquid Architecture and visual artist Thomas Lelu (June 2009) and American designers Peter Som (SS09 & SS11) & Rebecca Taylor (SS10).
Thierry gets his inspirations from vintage designs and materials but incorporates an updated modern and avant-gardist touch into those. He took classic vintage shapes and redesigned them, as he says, “with an avant-garde rock and electronic touch”.
