Creative upcycling

May 23, 2024 Staff reporters

Maison Lafont is debuting new sun styles made with creative upcycling, a concept developed by designer Thomas Lafont.


Using a thermo-fusion process mixing 50% vintage colours recycled from previous collections with 50% new biomaterial, Lafont creates new acetate colours in its facility in France. The latest sun collection offers three new sunglass designs Monaco, Ouessant and Ocean, all available in upcycled colourways.
