We deal with some wonderful independent companies, and one of our favorites is Lafont. Lafont has been in the eyewear business for over 80 years now, and they keep evolving and growing. Lafont was founded in 1923 by Louis Lafont, who manufactured eyeglasses. It was not until 1972, however, that Lafont became a “Brand.” In 1979, Lafont began selling their frames worldwide. They have been committed to timeless beauty and classic styles, but they also have a whimsical side. They love brilliant colors, and are often found at the forefront of the trends. Their trademark color is a stunning cheetah print, which is absolutely gorgeous on women of all skin tones, hair colors and ages.
Lafont is well known for their acetate frames. They use some of the best acetate, in some of the most brilliant colors. They also have more traditional colors, like tortoise (in many hues) and black. They use titanium in some of their metal frames, as well. Lafont has been known to embellish some of their frames with genuine Swarovski crystals, which add to the elegance and grace. These frames are works of art, and also extremely comfortable to wear. Do yourself a favor and check some out today!
