Employee Picks: Thierry Lasry Asphixy

Written by on December 5th 2010

This week the Opticianista chose a frame that spotlights just how awesome sunglasses can be All Year Round!

The Opticianista likes the orange color in this frame (look close and you’ll also see nifty gold flecks!). She likes that the orange is a bright color and that the frame has just a touch of 80s inspiration.

The frame has a confetti print, so it is not a traditional tortoise nor is it just one solid color which means that, most likely, two frames won’t look the same. The Opticianista is a fan of that unique feature of the frame, it’s something to adore about this line of sunglasses.

She also likes that it’s a cat-eye shape, but it’s one-of-a kind style makes if fashion-forward instead of a retro throwback.

And, most of all, the Opticianista is proud that Eye Spy Optical is the only store in Chicago that carries Thierry Lasry frames!
