Trend series: Spring’s statement sunglasses

Eyestylist meets Thierry Lasry at Premiere Classe in Paris

5th March 2012 Lasry makes beautiful statement eyewear…and these models are perfect examples. Speaking to Lasry today in Paris, he explained the use of 1980s vintage materials for some of his styles, such as Agony 385 (above) which has an incredible mosaic or marble material layered onto the front. These sunglasses are custom-made and limited to under 1000 pieces, given the limited availability of the decorative materials used in each one. Lasry’s gold templed sunglasses – he noted that black and gold in particular – are highly sought after in the fashion world (models like Lively and Sexxxy) but we have to say it’s the workmanship of his most decorative pieces that stand out for Eyestylist. The next big thing from Lasry is superb crystal frames – watch this space! CN/JG
