Established in 1960. The first brand to use the name of a well known sportsman. 2 opticians supplied their newly developed lenses to the French ski team. After Jean Vuarnet sported the then called Skilynx Acier lenses in a post win interview at the Squaw Valley Olympics, he was approached by the founders to change the name of the Skilynx Acier to Vuarnet, which then became Vuarnet Sunglasses.
Here are a few contemporary frames from the brand. Someone needs to bring this shit back.
