Vuarnet has been around for over 60 years and it’s a big name in the skiing and the mountain industries. In 1957, the optician Roger Pouilloux makes the now-legendary Skilynx lens. This lens has remarkable optics properties and can protect your eyes from the snow glare as well as it can enhance your vision of the terrain in a flat-light day. The thing is, Roger was passionate about skiing and he decided to offer his second model of sunglasses to the ski champion Jean Vuarnet. See where this is going? With these glasses on (named Vuarnet 02), the skier won the Olympic title at Squaw Valley in 1960. Following this victory, the two guys associate and create the Vuarnet brand who was soon to be known worldwide. The most notorious lenses are the Skilynx, the PX5000, PX3000 and Polarlynx. Built from mineral glass in a french factory, they all carry the V underlined with a ski. They ensure high optics precision, high durability and the best UV protection ever.
In general, sunglasses are unisex models but Vuarnet also has kids models available like the VL 1072, 1073, 1079. There are also iconic models like the Glacier or the monture 02 and lately more trendy / lifestyle-like models. Whether you’re skiing or just chilling in the streets, the Vuarnet sunglasses will cover your needs!
