The Vuarnet brand was founded in 1960 after French skier Jean Vuarnet won the gold medal for downhill skiing at the 1960 Olympic Games. Vuarnet won his medal while wearing a pair of sunglasses provided to the French ski team by Joseph Hatchiguian and Roger Pouilloux. Hatchiguian and Pouilloux teamed up with Jean Vuarnet to create a brand that showcased the amazing lens they invented. It was then when Vuarnet Sunglasses was born.
The lens they designed was exceptional in its innovation. It was ideal for outdoor sportsmen because it combined various tints that enabled them to see in bright sunlight without being overwhelmed by the sun. What's more is that the lens, called Skilynx, also increased luminosity in darker weather. Vuarnet's growth and success allowed the company to create fashionable designs and new lens technology. Vuarnet Sunglasses gained international recognition in 1984 when it sponsored the Los Angeles Olympics. This is when Vuarnet Sunglasses crossed over from the ski slopes to the beaches and became synonymous with top quality eyewear for any sport.
Vuarnet Sunglasses has always kept up with new styles and has been able to adapt to a changing clientele. Vuarnet has always been popular with people who enjoy extreme sports and adventure. The experts at Vuarnet, however, understand that life itself is an adventure, so they have designed frames and invented lenses that can go from the ski slopes to the urban jungle. Vuarnet's Citylynx lens brings the city to life by reducing the intensity of light without altering the myriad of colors that urban adventurers enjoy daily.
Vuarnet Sunglasses recognizes that its clientele, whether riding waves or hailing taxis, want only the best. This is why its lenses are scratch resistant, hydrophobic, and oleophobic. Vuarnet is not merely a sports brand; it is truly a lifestyle that embraces the idea of enjoying life every day.
