At Lafont Paris, a steady ‘step by step’ The apPROach to developing a genuine responsible sustainable path has involved the introduction of bioacetate and an experiMental material concept for the colorful limited edition “upcycled” acetates.

The ‘creative recycling’ has been explored as a Completely New way of styling signature colours, first launched by the Company at Silmo in 2021 (see:https://www.eyestylist.com/2021/11/creative-upcycling -lafont -paris-e-inouie/). “This is based on a mix of vintage Lafont exclusive colours” de Lafont”, explains Matthieu Lafont. “Developed by my brother, Thomas, this concept can also be seen as a ‘color lab’.We use a hot melt PROcess to create a mix of 50% old color and 50% New bio material.This specific technique is currently only PROduced in special limited quantities.”
