Born to an optician father and designer mother, Thierry Lasry was raised in a highly creative environment. He launched his eponymous sunglass brand in late 2006 around the concept of “futuristic vintage”, fusing vintage inspirations with an updated, modern and avant-garde touch.
Entirely hand-made in France by the best artisans using acetate from reputable Italian manufacturer Mazzucchelli, THIERRY LASRY sunglasses are considered design objects in themselves. The brand’s logo is hidden from the eye, discreetly engraved inside the temples. In this way, the product itself and the level of creativity of the designs remain the priority for the designer. The sunglasses are all flat fronted, giving a futuristic twist to retro-inspired shapes.
ORGASMY, SLUTTY, SEXXXY… the name of each model ends in a “Y”, the letter found in both the designer’s first and last names, as he considers each of his designs as one of his “babies”. Currently distributed to over 50 countries, a range of stars are amongst the brand’s most devoted fans, including Madonna, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, and Jennifer Lawrence.
The brand has also done several collaboration including brands such as Acne Studios and Melinda Gloss, interior designer Kelly Wearstler and it-girl Miroslava Duma as well as a joint-venture with the Italian Fashion House Fendi for a sunglasses capsule collection "FENDI and THIERRY LASRY" for the seasons spring 2015 & spring 2016.
