New York, NY – April, 1 2016 -The legendary, French sunglass brand Vuarnet, manufacturer of timeless sunglasses and the finest mineral lenses with unparalleled protection, clarity and durability, announced today the Horizon collection for 2016. The Horizon collection sets new standards in terms of sporting elegance and brilliantly combines the two core elements of Vuarnet’s DNA: style and functionality. The collection, debuting in the United States at Vision Expo East in April, is designed for active use in both urban and outdoor environments.
The new Horizon collection features four models inspired by Vuarnet’s iconic shapes - round, pilot, square and butterfly. These sunglasses are designed for both men and women looking for something elegant yet timeless and understated. The stunning frame shapes give the collection a refined look, while the thick temples, made of acetate, give them added depth and provide extra protection. Each model is crafted with acetate and features fixed, five-section hinges. Setting the Horizon collection apart, each style also features a removable cord to help retain the glasses and allow them to be worn around the neck, for added functionality. The retainer cords, inspired by sailing and climbing ropes, are attached with a carefully designed and highly functional metal system.
The famous “V on a Ski” – the mark of authenticity etched on each and every Vuarnet glass lens since the brand was founded in 1957 – will be subtly engraved in metal on the temples of the frames.
Like all Vuarnet sunglasses, the new Horizon collection will feature Vuarnet mineral glass lenses. Vuarnet designs and manufactures its own mineral glass lenses at its production facility in Meaux, near Paris, France. All of Vuarnet’s mineral glass lenses are developed to the same exacting standards, for daily use or for intense lighting conditions. Vuarnet mineral lenses offer the very best optical clarity, maximum protection, extreme durability and deliver the ultimate in visual comfort.
