Maison Lafont is a renowned brand celebrating the art of French craftsmanship and expertise. Recently, they have collaborated with Maison Pierre Frey to create an exciting new collection. This collaboration is a fusion of two iconic creative universes, each with unique expertise.  Drawing inspiration from the imaginative richness of Maison Pierre Frey, Thomas Lafont has crafted six brand-new sunglasses by embedding their fabrics between layers of acetate.


“For me, this partnership is an obvious choice. Pierre Frey exemplifies the French aesthetic. Integrating such a wealth of creativity in our universe is a real pleasure. La Maison Pierre Frey, a House embodied by a family with long history, of course echoes our own.” Says chief Creative Director Thomas Lafont.
