Inspired by a more romantic age and reminiscent of fine vintage jewelry, this technical breakthrough has become known as the original necklace for eyewear.
La LOOP, initially known for its patented loop and hinge which pivots and moves with the body allowing the eyewear to hang in place, today the array of finishes and designs is exploding. Fine silk cords, classic leather finishes, precious stones and minerals, diverse metals and woods, sporty neon colors and silver or gold loops create pieces of jewelry with function–but beautiful enough to be worn as an adornment alone.
Designed & Handmade in the USA
La LOOP is about more than combining utility and style. It’s also a reflection of their values. Each season they design more than 20 new styles, continuing to innovate but maintaining the marriage of function and form that sparked the original La LOOP. They strive to create edited collections that are on trend, never compromising on design or quality.
La LOOP sources materials from across the globe, partnering directly with local suppliers who are experts in their fields. The level of craftsmanship and simply the amount of time put into creating each La LOOP accessory or reader makes each piece a work of art.
In the end though, it’s the wearers who truly matter most. They’re La LOOP’s best marketing team, simply by spreading the word every time someone asks, “Where did you get that?” Fashion-forward and hardworking describes La LOOP—but it also describes their clientele. They know you want style and performance, and they’re devoted to creating products that deliver on both.
DESIGN & CRAFTSMANSHIP
New designs and innovations have helped La LOOP develop a cult following worldwide. After expanding with two innovative, stylish solutions for quick reads—Le Collier and the Monocle, which incorporate lenses—creating modern, sophisticated reading glasses was the next step. La LOOP, the company, filled this niche with EV3 LDN, a chic, tightly edited collection of contemporary eyewear.
An emphasis from day one on quality materials and handmade products put La LOOP ahead of the curve, as both sourcing and sustainability have since become watchwords in the fashion world. This continues with the recent acquisition of Diane Taylor Designs, a collection of eyewear leashes and accessories made by hand in Los Angeles.
HISTORY & AWARDS
La LOOP was born out of necessity– over 15 years ago. Living in New York and living a multi tasking — work, kids juggle — I was looking for products that were functional, stylish and simplified life. At the time, digging at the bottom of my bag for sunglasses or losing them entirely was part of the routine. Inspired by high-end street style from cities around the globe, La LOOP introduced an innovative, first of its kind eyewear accessory that’s as practical as it is fashion-forward.
The styles catch your attention, but it’s the patented hinges that set La LOOP in a class of its own. Using 360-degree technology on the hinges of the loop, it keeps your glasses secure and in place without bending, twisting, or falling out. The first necklace for eyewear, La LOOP has been recognized worldwide as an invention by countless museums including New York’s Museum of Modern Art, and media types like the Wall Street Journal, New York Times and Brand Week. Today, La LOOP can be found in over 1,000 stores spanning 28 countries.
