Founder and Creative Director, Laurence Bourguignon, has always been passionate about sunglasses. She is intrigued by all aspects of this fascinating fashion accessory.After years of assembling an extensive personal collection, she could not resist turning her hand to the creation of her own brand, LAURENCE D’ARI. With this brand name, she pays tribute to her late father, Ari, who was both creative and passionate in everything he did.

LAURENCE D’ARI wants to share the passion and please women with a luxury range that is strong, charismatic and elegant.The models are inspired by vintage elements and aim to bridge the gap between past and present, offering frames with an edgy, but everyday femininity. The baseline ‘Antwerp heart, Italian hands’ says it all. Created and designed in Laurence’s home town of Antwerp, Belgium’s fashion capital. Produced in Italy, as a natural choice for its reputation in technical expertise and excellent craftsmanship. LAURENCE D’ARI combines Belgian design with Italian top quality.

 “Sunglasses can make or break an outfit. It’s that simple. The right sunglasses on the right person can uplift the simplest outfit to a very stylish level. I don’t follow trends and I don’t create for a defined target group. My designs are an expression of myself and who I am. I can only hope that my sunglasses will be picked up by women with a genuine and self-confident personality, daring to express themselves. Style has nothing to do with age. Everybody can make a stylish statement, you just have to believe it.”
