This month we are excited to share with you another new brand we have added to our existing international frame ranges – Lafont Paris.
With more than 90 years’ experience and three generations of the Lafont family guiding the brand, this historic eyewear family has created a genuine fashion accessory, which epitomises the French avant garde style, making Parisian chic accessible for all. The range is kept current and fresh by unveiling around 30 new models each season, always with an eye on the fun and whimsical.
Still made in France, with many of the manufacturing processes still done by hand, every frame starts life as a simple sketch in the sketch book of Thomas Lafont (Chief Creative Director). Then traditional craftsmanship meets high tech processes, with between 120 and 220 successive manufacturing operations bringing his designs to life.
There is a great selection for both men and women.
Tailored frames for men, which are smart and sleek, sit alongside luxurious, feminine pieces for women, heavily influenced by the art deco period. Colour is key for this brand, with more than 200 colour combinations; only Lafont can mix tartan with Liberty prints to create uniquely elegant eyewear.
There really is something for everyone, whether you’re looking for simple lines or opulent colour and unique French flair, come in today and see what’s new at Haydon Optometrists
