“A pair of glasses provides the first hint of an individual’s personality. A great pair of glasses, with all its detail and complexity must, above all, be an extension of the individual.”
Lafont is a trendsetting boutique eyewear designer producing superb handmade spectacles with an emphasis on elegance and Parisian chic.
A family business that began in the Madeleine area of Paris in 1923 (and is still based there), the style started with an art deco feel and is subtly rebellious, discreetly avant-garde; refined, but full of surprises and a certain “je ne sais quoi”.
Imagine a Liberty print or tartan, encased in acetate and developed over 14 weeks and perhaps 220 processes (most of them performed by hand). Lafont designs, patterns and colours aim to surprise and delight the wearer with effortless chic.
