Straight From Paris, We’ve Added More Than 40 New Lafont Eyeglasses in Colors, Shapes and Patterns That Are a Feast for the Eyes!

While April in Paris is still three wintery months away, it already feels like springtime on the rue du Faubourg Urban Optiques 2010 Lafont Eyewear CollectionSt-Honoré inside Urban Optiques.

That’s because on Thursday, the first of several shipments of new Lafont eyeglasses and sunglasses arrived.

We’ve added more than 40 new frames from Lafont, drawn from the new Spring/Summer 2010 Lafont Paris Collection, as well as new, fresh designs from the Issy & LA and Lafont Reedition Collections. We also added several new  Lafont Pour les Infants frames for children, ‘Tweens and infants.

While the majority of our new Lafont suns will arrive closer to Spring, we did pick a couple of very chic Lafont sunglasses, just to remind everyone that winter doesn’t last forever.

Less than two days after adding the frames, we’ve already sold three of the new Lafont models, which is a great sign.

In celebration of the addition of the new Lafonts, we’re doing a buy one frame at regular price and get 1/2 off select Lafont frames from our previous collection.

This is a great opportunity to pick up two very different styles of Lafonts (one for work and maybe something bolder for play), so be sure to ask about the special when you stop in to browse the new collection.

Just to whet your appetite a bit, we took some snapshots of the new Lafont eyewear.  Like all accessories, there’s really no substitute for trying it on, but we’re pretty certain that you’ll spot something that will inspire you to make the trip in-person.

I found a pair of Lafont glasses from the Somerset collection and wanted to see if you had the same pair. They were brown, in a petite, square plastic frame with a houndstooth design in black. Do you have those in stock?

Hi Stephanie,
We have almost 100 Lafont frames in stock right now at Urban Optiques, which is the largest, deepest collection in Metro-Detroit. There is a good chance that we have the frame you are interested in (perhaps in a different color), but if we don’t we can certainly order it in for you. We have an excellent relationship with Lafont and they are very responsive and fast with special orders for Urban Optiques, when necessary. I am going to respond to you directly in e-mail as well.

Thanks again for considering us for your eyewear needs. We’re thrilled to help you find the perfect glasses. The Lafont line is amazing.

Warmest regards,
Dr. Michelle

I love unique eyeglass frames! I noticed your collection of Lafont frames
on your website. Do you have the ones pictured that have leopard or
panther at the top and black at the bottom. Also, what do you have in leopard or panther? If you have a catalog of funky frames, I would love to order many from you.
