About Lafont

Lafont eyewear collections all have one thing in common: a subtly rebellious, discreetly avant-garde touch of refinement. Over 200 colour combinations and a selection of unique mix-and-match materials: tartan or Liberty print fabrics sandwiched between two sheets of acetate, panther designs, horn and tortoiseshell.

Each frame is full of surprises! A deep-rooted heritage of French culture and tastes is seen through the works of art created in the workshops of Jura.

The brand expertise and commitment to impeccable quality are now sought after by clients not only in France but worldwide.

Parisian Flair

For over 90 years, good taste and a certain “je ne sais quoi” have been the hallmark of the Lafont brand, its boutiques and of course their distinguished creations.

Independent styling accomplished through innovative techniques and traditional know-how. Designs patterns and colours all intended to surprise and delight the wearer with effortless chic.

The House of Lafont has obtained the OFG (Guaranteed French Origin) label. The certification applies to the entire acetate collection and solidifies Lafont’s position as a pillar of French eyewear manufacturing.

Lafont’s production history dates back more than forty years in close collaboration with the Jura based manufacturer Thierry SA. In order to share this unique characteristic with loyal Lafont fans, the design house registered for OFG certification, authenticating that those products are 100% manufactured in France. Upon a review of the application and an audit by an accredited independent organization.
