Lafont Paris is celebrating its 30th Anniversary in North America with an exceptional frame creation produced in a limited edition of 400 pieces and one unique colour scheme. The design recognises the extraordinary successes of the Parisian design house in the USA, where Laurence and Philippe Lafont first began selling their frames in 1987 in some of the finest American eyewear boutiques of the time. The frame follows other special releases such as model Twenty, the 2007 metal edition for the US market that was famously worn by Lady Gaga.
Certified with the Origin France Guarantee, model Thirty represents an iconic design with an exciting decorative concept. The asymmetrical black and ivory carved acetate sunglass style is embellished with cut outs of the Statue of Liberty on one temple and the Eiffel Tower on the other.
Lafont first started making luxurious eyewear in 1923. By the 80s when the family brought their frames to the States, their unique decorative style and luxurious shapes and colours were among a handful of collections focusing exclusively on traditional handcrafting techniques and fine quality materials. The family business has helped shape the innovations and developments we see today in the design and decoration of luxury eyewear.
