Thierry Lasry is a French designer born in Paris, who now lives in New York. He launched his eponymous eyewear brand late 2006. Raised in a highly creative environment by a father who was an Optician and a mother who was a designer, he has elevated the status of sunglasses and managed to redesign them into a fashion accessory that is as essential as a nice clutch or a pair of stilettos. Thierry felt that craftsmanship and the renowned PARISIAN style mixed with groundbreaking designs would win over any women or man in search of honoring their strong self-identity. This idea is revolutionary in a fashion world obsessed with branding. Thierry Lasry is a product of the 80s culture, who blossomed with the joys of Playmobil, Lego and Japanese cartoons. Astroboy and Cobra were broadcasted religiously during that particular period on French television.
