LAFONT EMBROIDERS WITH MAISON SEKIMOTO…
The eyewear brand LAFONT celebrates its centenary with virtuosity, merging its expertise with that of Haute Couture. The embroiderer Satoshi Sekimoto, Best Craftsman of France in Haute Couture embroidery, shared his art of beauty and delicacy with Thomas Lafont, the artistic director of the eyewear brand, to create an exceptionally embroidered frame aptly named “Ouvrage” — a craftsmanship feat and a unique aesthetic collaboration. Born in Hiroshima, Japan, Satoshi Sekimoto was exposed to ancestral craftsmanship by his mother, a kimono seamstress. At the age of 22, he moved to France and joined the prestigious school of MAISON LESAGE, a renowned embroiderer. He then embarked on a career as an independent artisan, collaborating with major Haute Couture houses before establishing his own house in 2022. His talent was acknowledged this year with the prestigious title of Master Artisan in the Artisan Craft.
