Vuarnet has a unique story. It began in 1957 in Roger Pouilloux’s workshops on Paris’ rue Boissy d’Anglas. This avant-garde optician and ski enthusiast would revolutionize the world of sunglasses by inventing an exceptional lens capable of both protecting him on the slopes and the streets by offering superior depth perception in overcast weather.
The two men, who shared a common passion and vision, forged a friendship and decided to join forces to create a brand that reflected their character: innovative, high-performance and elegant. Vuarnet was born and would subsequently establish itself as the absolute benchmark in sunglasses.
Vuarnet is the only brand to produce its mineral lenses in its own factory.
