LPLR Eyewear (the acronym for ‘La Petite Lunette Rouge’) is an eyewear brand designed and handmade in France.
The brand was born out of an encounter between Alison Hemmes, designer and Hilarhi Arcade, founder of the brand. Their passion for contemporary art and their wish to revisit the popular 80s ‘clip on’ style led them down the path of putting a double bridge characterised originally only in red. This has become their unique brand signature – the little red line, or in French, la petite lunette rouge.
“In terms of eyewear creation, everything has already been done and we must revisit the past to create the future” – Hilarhi
The basis of their work revolves around the 80s. Each frame is signed with a double bridge tightened as a nod to the solar clips of this decade. At first, only in red, the upper bar is now coloured in different shades.
This unique brand embodies boldness and creativity and is an asset to anyone’s eyewear collection.
