When it comes to sunglasses, the only thing I love more than Thierry Lasry's edgy retro lenses is supporting local retailers. So when I heard of an opportunity for both, I jumped at it.
In case you haven't succumbed to the cult of Lasry, he's the son of a designer and an optician who combines the best of both his parents' worlds. The frames he designs are handmade in France from dead stock material and found on the faces of celebrity and fashion types everywhere.
Now, Lasry joins forces with Toronto eyewear retailer Spectacle on two designs: the Lively glasses ($485) and the Primary eyeglasses ($420). The exclusive shades are handmade using vintage acetate from the 80s for a classic but unique look. (Spectacle, 18 Rack House Mews, 416-363-5300, and others, spectaclelovesyou.com)
