Strong, architectural shapes

 

Born in a small workshop in the 19th district of Paris in the 1960s, Lesca Lunetier sunglasses are as chic as their heritage.

 

Big glasses made on a small scale

Inspired by the techniques of yesteryear, Lesca glasses are riveted and shaped according to strict specifications. Shying away from mass manufacturing techniques, its founder, Joel Lesca, has developed limited series collections in workshops or small-scale factories where the product is always man-made.

 

Born during a revolution

Lesca was born during a period of stylistic revolution: furniture, fashion, and architecture design were all radically changing. This, in turn, had a huge impact on eyewear, new cellulose acetates and the development of modern eyewear factories in France allowed for new design to take hold. Lesca exploited this fruitful time by developing the CORBS, their model which was designed and worn by the famous Swiss architect Le Corbusier, and made from distinctive thick acetate frames. This model has been reissued by the company every year since 1979.

 

The glasses that made the brand

It is exactly this style of frame that has become a defining characteristic of the brand. Strong, uncompromising, architectural shapes which come in a square with rounded edge transparent rose pink, hexagonal yellow tortoiseshell, and a whole range of color and shape combos.

Nowadays the company’s strong DNA is maintained by Joel’s sons, Mathieu and Bertrand, who have their eyes on the past and their designs in the present. Make your statement with a pair of these classics.
