For those who are unfamiliar with Vuarnet sunglasses, let us introduce you to a brand that’s definitely worth getting to know in 2016.
Made in France, the Vuarnet product range prides itself on quality and it’s the only sunglasses brand in the world to produce its own mineral lenses; with their own production facility in the Seine-et-Marne commune of Meaux, every bit of the production process is managed stringently by the in-house tech and design team.
The small-scale production of these winter sport sunglasses for men gives every pair an artisan stamp of approval and you can expect nothing less than the best when it comes to performance. But quality is never compromised for style with this luxury French brand.
In addition to maximum UV protection and exceptional durability, Vuarnet sunglasses are designed for trend-setters and the fashion forward man. So much so in fact, that Vuarnet shades have been featured in endless movies, including James Bond Spectre.
Here’s a list of cool movies featuring Vuarnet glasses and some similar styles to copy the look here at SelectSpecs.
Spectre: James Bond (Daniel Craig)
Of course we have the iconic scene from the latest James Bond movie, Spectre. Daniel Craig wears the famous Glacier Model, a unique Vuarnet frame and lens combo created for snowy conditions and the tallest mountain peaks. These Glacier sunglasses date all the way back to the 80s and they have been a leading high-performance choice for explorers and mountaineers ever since. The side shields help to protect your eyes from glare and reflection from the snow, and the stainless steel / acetate design ensures complete comfort.
Get the James Bond Spectre look with the Vuarnet VL1315 GLACIER sunglasses as worn by Daniel Craig in the movie.
Everest (Jake Gyllenhaal)
Jake Gyllenhaal played the late American mountaineer Scott Fischer in this real account of an Everest blizzard in 1996 which caused injuries and deaths during an expedition. This true story based movie is exhilarating as well as moving, and a serious rollercoaster ride of emotions (panic and fear being the main emotions). And we just love Jake Gyllenhaal’s mountaineering style in this film. He’s seen wearing a different version of the famous James Bond Spectre sunglasses. Steal Jake Gyllenhaal’s style with the Vuarnet VL1315 GLACIER; various colours are available.
The Big Lebowski (Jeff Bridges)
This movie is a total throwback but we need to shed some limelight on this 1998 blockbuster because the guys over at Vuarnet are bringing back a total classic this season – The Californian Spirit frame. This style of Vuarnet sunglasses was worn by actor Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski and we just love that this look is back in. It just goes to show that classics never fade. If you’re digging this retro style from the late 90s, check out the Vuarnet VL1103 sunglasses at SelectSpecs. It comes available in 8 stylish designs including a retro inspired tortoise shell.
