INTRODUCING: VUARNET SUNGLASSES January 19 2017
Jean Vuarnet was a seven-time French ski champion by 1958.
A meeting with French optician, Roger Pouilloux, marked the start of the business adventure leading to the creation of VUARNET. During that meeting, Mr. Pouilloux offered the French ski champion a pair of his sunglasses as a token of his admiration.
The sunglasses, equipped with exclusive and patented Skilynx mineral glass lenses, enabled Jean Vuarnet to further improve his performance. The sunglasses would highlight contrasts and enhance depth perception in the fast downhill skiing along the slopes of Squaw Valley several months later during the 1960 Winter Olympics in which he won the gold medal.
Following this victory, the two men forged a friendship and decided to join forces in creating a brand that embedded their vision of constant innovation, high-performance, and French elegance. VUARNET was born.
