Katerina is from Moscow and has a big collection of sunglasses. Her current faves: these Thierry Lasry Peroxxxy shades in a “Vintage Mozaik” motif. Handmade in France, these frames are made from vintage deadstock acetates that, when pieced together, form a rare and vibrant pattern. The solid black temples are a surprisingly subtle twist to the otherwise bold look. The “Peroxxxy” style features a wider, curvier shape, with thick nose bridge and a slight cat eye. It’s one to add to Katerina’s collection – or any of our eyewear collections for that matter!
We spotted writer and stylist Ally Dean wearing these “Lively” sunglasses, from Thierry Lasry’s limited-edition collaboration with Toronto eyewear boutique, Spectacle. Lasry was in town himself to launch the collab, which also includes a pair of optical frames from Harry Lary’s dubbed “Primary.” It’s the French designer’s first collaboration in Canada, and he chose to do so with a store that carries a diverse and well-curated collection of Lasry’s buzzed-about frames.
Ally’s sunglasses are made from vintage deadstock acetate from Italy, which creates a unique, mosaic-like pattern. The shape is bold and chunky, with round, gradient lenses and a slightly straighter nose bridge than most. The frames begin to butterfly along the brow-line, mirroring the butterfly textures and colours that reveal themselves upon closer inspection of the acetate. (No seriously, take a good look and let us know if you see it too).
The “Lively” retails for $485 and the “Primary” retails for $420. Both styles are available now exclusively at Spectacle.
Corri usually wears all black or all white and needed some colour in her wardrobe. Enter these “Therapy” glasses by Thierry Lasry. Undeniably bold and eye-catching, these Havana-style frames feature confetti-like pieces made from sheets of rare Italian acetate. The look is complimented by the chunky design and oversized round gradient lenses.
The child of an optician and a designer, Lasry’s frames have been described as “futuristic vintage,” merging Old Hollywood luxury with avant-garde designs. These “Therapy” sunglasses are no exception, mixing modern minimalism with a fun “kaleidoscope” effect to create a new classic.
Anyone who’s anyone in the eyewear industry knows about Julia Gogosha. As the founder and owner of Gogosha Optique, she’s the consummate eyewear fan – a fashion lover who’s not afraid to experiment when it comes to accessorizing with her glasses, and a storeowner who eschews what’s “hot” in favour of seeking out something a little more unique.
We photographed Julia outside her Silverlake store in these limited-edition Miroslava Duma x Thierry Lasry sunglasses. The Russian style blogger and the French eyewear designer teamed up for this bold and outsized pair of shades, made from a mosaic of vintage acetate taken from Lasry’s personal collection. Each piece is assembled by hand from individual pieces of acetate, making every frame one of a kind. The subtle cat eye gives it a hint of retro, while the sleek, gold arms up the sex appeal.
Julia paired her sunglasses with Loeffler Randall shoes, a Bridge & Burn wrap dress and a Rag & Bone scarf worn as a turban. As for how she got her hands on these super exclusive shades? Well, she just called up Thierry and asked! We told you people knew who she was.
