A few time ago I met Mathieu Lesca, currently managing the eyewear brand LESCA, in his parisian home and showroom. Founded in 1964 by Joël Lesca, the Parisian brand goes on, now managed by the founder's sons, Mathieu and Bertrand. The two brothers took their father's passion, who have them his love for the eyewear but also his know-how, making them pursue the primed work today.
This family business continues then to move forward, while respecting a home-made model. Indeed every frame has been made by 4 craftsmen opticians in a workshop, located in Jura for almost 100 years. Lesca keeps on showing a precious knowledge ; if a human-sized factory has the advantage to make very qualitative products, these models are also rare as only 120 glasses are produced by color. Based on their father's glasses collection, the two brothers also restore authentic and vintages models, strengthening even more the uniqueness of the brand.
This season, the brand unveils models with vintage inspirations, and a collaboration with young designer Gaëlle Constantini. We shot a small selection of this very attractive collection for WAD !
