About Lafont Eyewear
The Parisian design house Lafont is one of the French capital's leading opticians and frame makers with a rich history that dates back to 1923.
Well known for their premier craftsmanship and French manufacturing, the Lafont designs have a creative, colorful style that evolved under the creative direction of Philippe and Laurence Lafont, the late founders of the brand.
Today, their sons, Matthieu and Thomas, continue the traditional and innovative spirit of their parents’ work in eyewear collections for men, women, and children with distinguished creativity unique to their brand.
What To Look For
Lafont frames are full of surprises! Over 200 color combinations and a selection of unique mix-and-match materials: tartan or Liberty print fabrics sandwiched between two sheets of acetate, animal-print designs, latticework, horn, and lace patterns are typical features of the collection, as are the unique polka dot finishes or exceptional, classical tortoiseshell designs.
As well as the beautiful acetates, the brand has developed frames in high-quality metals such as stainless steel and explores the use of very modern materials such as carbon fiber, eye-catching hinges, and rivets. The occasional flourish of decorative Swarovski crystals adds to the extraordinary elegance and variety of details.
Lafont frames are 100% manufactured in the Jura in France in a close and long-standing collaboration with a traditional spectacle-making factory of the region.
