Vuarnet’s History and Eyewear Strategy

Vuarnet Eyewear from France was co-founded in 1957 by Roger Pouilloux’s in workshops on Rue Boissy d’Anglas of Paris. This avant-garde optician and ski enthusiast revolutionized the world of sunglasses by inventing an exceptional high tech mineral lens capable of both safeguarding him on the slopes and offering depth perception in overcast weather.

Their mineral lenses are the outcome of decades of accumulated science and expert dedication to their persistent, eager efforts to make the best lenses in the world. The brand’s signature mirrored double gradient-tinted coating (LYNX) alters the shade of the tint in accordance with the area of the lens.

Vuarnet was granted the French EPV (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant) certification since their mineral lenses are all-natural and can be recycled unlike “plastic” lenses that most brands use for their eyewear.

With a mixture of the technical components of the Glacier model and a chic urban style, the Vuarnet Ice collection is designed for those looking for sun protection under any kind of lighting conditions.

 Vuarnet provides numerous lens alternatives, including polarized, flash mirror, and the well-known Lynx technology (bi-layered mirror treatment providing more comfortable vision towards the upper and lower parts of the eye). The glass mineral lenses give uncompromising optical clarity, ensuring no distortion and high-definition vision.
