About Vuarnet USA
Founded in France in 1957, Vuarnet made its debut on the international stage when downhill skier, Jean Vuarnet, won the gold medal at the 1960 Olympics wearing the brand’s iconic cat eye. The brand soon grew in popularity outside of the ski world, reaching the height of its popularity in the Eighties when the VL 02 cat eye was THE style to own.
Today, Vuarnet continues that legacy offering the highest-quality, sport-elegant sunglasses with the finest mineral lenses to deliver unparalleled protection, clarity, durability and style. The US collection reflects both the brand’s heritage as well as contemporary trends including: sleek metal aviators, updated glacier silhouettes, glamorous lifestyle sunglasses, and styles designed specifically for an active lifestyle.
