NEW BRAND @ EXCELSIOR MILANO – THIERRY LASRY SUNGLASSES
BACK TO THE FUTURE
French designer Thierry Lasry launched his eponymous eyewear line in 2006 with the aim to create sunglasses for fashionistas eager to stand out from the pack. To wit, his shades are hinged on the idea of “futuristic vintage” or retro inspirations updated with a modern and avant-gardist touch. His hallmark? A flat-fronted design that gives a forward-looking twist to retro-inspired shapes.
Now available at Excelsior Milano is a focused selection of cat-eye and round frames in clear acetate countered by azure, lilac, gray and brown lenses for a striking standout contrast.
Entirely hand-made in France with the best artistry and traditional know-how, Lasry’s sunglasses are crafted with the prized acetate of Italian specialist Mazzucchelli. The process is more sculpted that traditional cutting with the layering of sheets of assorted colors the secret behind his signature textures.
Among his star-studded roster of fans are Madonna, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Kate Moss, Jennifer Lopez, Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus to Jennifer Lawrence, Anne Hathaway, Reese Witherspoon and Jessica Alba.
"Thierry is a true innovator in the eyewear world, always pushing boundaries and challenging conventional design with a unique artistic approach,” says Silvia Venturini, the Creative Director of Fendi’s accessories and men’s wear.
