Thierry Lasry, French Eyewear Designre, has always been a huge fans of Paris Saint-Germain F.C., following the team since a very young age. As a teenager, he could always be found at the Parc des Princes (the PSG stadium) to attend every single game of the season and support his team. His very first game was the epic UEFA Cup quarter final against Real Madrid in 1993, one of the most magical nights in the history of the club, after which he attended every single game in Paris for many years. Thierry’s heart has been beating for PSG for over 30 years – so for me, it’s a dream to get the opportunity to associate his name with the club, to launch an exclusive pair of sunglasses to celebrate the club’s 50th year anniversary.
The exclusive sunglasses come in three colors and two versions: a classic one with solid lenses and a more “blinged-out” one with Swarovski crystals around the rims. For the occasion, Thierry Lasry has developed an exclusive material in partnership with the prestigious Italian house Mazzucchelli using the three core colors of PSG: red, blue and white. The pattern is inspired by supporters holding their scarves above their heads when the players enter the field. Hand-made in France with the best craftsmanship techniques and traditional know-how, the frame combines blocks of acetate using a process more akin to sculpture than to regular cutting techniques. Whether you are a fan of PSG or not, it’s worth to have this sunglasses collection which is combining the fashion, art and sports.
