La Petite Lunette Rouge
LPLR Eyewear (acronym for ” La Petite Lunette Rouge “) is born out of an encounter between Alison Hemmes, designer and Hilarhi Arcade, founder of the brand. Their passion for contemporary art guided them into a quest of singularity and modernism. They wished to revisit the popular 80s “clip on” by putting a double bridge characterize with a red line on all their frames, their singular brand signature. Audacity is the driving force behind their quest for singularity and modernism. The collection is exclusively handmade in France.
Only pleasure and fun guided their imagination around different visionaries. Thus "De Vinci", "Jobs", "Duchamp" or "Verne", are names that you can find on the sunglasses. Since few years the frames are now available with different color lines.
"Everything has already been done in terms of eyewear design and we must revisit the past to create the future" says Hilarhi. The basis of their work revolves around the 1980s.
