About the Designer
French designer, Thierry Lasry launched his eponymous sunglass line in late 2006. Raised in a highly creative environment by an optician as a father and a designer as a mother, Thierry Lasry went on to create a sunglass brand aimed at a certain Elite looking to distinguish themselves out of the crowd. THIERRY LASRY sunglasses are based on the concept of « futuristic vintage » fusing vintage inspirations with an updated, modern and avant-gardist touch. The sunglasses are all flat fronted, giving a futuristic twist to retro-inspired shapes.
Source of Inspiration
The eighties remain a key source of inspiration for Thierry Lasry, considered by the designer as «an incredibly creative period». Having developed a style that is both retro and futuristic in vibe, Thierry Lasry creates highly graphic models by mixing vintage-inspired outlines with modern avant-garde details. With “back-to-the-future” as a motto, the designer looks back to vintage images and materials to create new shapes whose purity of lines carry a refined and contemporary edge.
Whats in a Name
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 ».
The Sunglasses the Most Loved by Celebrities

How They’re Made
All the acetate frames are entirely hand-made in France with the best craftsmanship techniques and traditional know-how. The sunglasses only use acetate from the reputable Italian manufacturer Mazzucchelli. By working out the volume, the acetate front is made using a process more akin to sculpture than to regular cutting techniques. The acetates typically undergo a process of layering–meaning textures are created by combining sheets of different colors one against the other.
