Vuarnet is a French eyewear maker known for their blend of innovation and style. This dates back to 1960 Winter Olympics, when company co-founder Jean Vuarnet took advantage of the increased contrast of their Skilynx lenses on the way to gold. In the years since, their timeless designs have appeared on the faces of both James Bond and The Dude, further demonstrating their wide appeal.
Immortalized on screen by Jeff Bridges in The Big Lebowski, Vuarnet's The Dude sunglasses will add some laid back vibes to your summer wardrobe. Dubbed model 03, the silhouette was originally launched in 1962 and was inspired by the oversized aviators of US Air Force pilots. The frames are made from a tough shape memory nylon for comfort and have integrated monobloc hinges as well as a removable bridge insert, while the grey polar lenses offer maximum protection against glare whether it's coming from the sun or your lighter. Made in France.

Tom Selleck's Magnum P.I. was such an iconic character that one of his outfits sits in the Smithsonian. While you might not want to sport a barely buttoned Hawaiian shirt or thick mustache, these Vaurnet Tom Sunglasses are a piece of his signature look you'll want to emulate. Their aviator-based silhouette has been widened for more masculine proportions — making them ideal for broad faces — and the acetate frame beefed up with lateral reinforcement and heavy-duty 5 barrel hinges. They're finished with a detachable cord with steel fasteners, adding to their sporty feel. Available in matte black frame with pure grey lenses, or a sportier amber frame with polarized blue lenses.

Made for the mountain yet stylish enough for 007 — who wore a pair in his most recent outing on film — Vuarnet's Glacier sunglasses are a performance shade that can go from the slopes to the streets. The moderately-sized frame is made from a mix of stainless steel and acetate, with a natural leather side case that clips on and off magnetically. Blue Polarlynx lenses add to the steely look, and the natural leather cord ensures they don't go flying off during evasive maneuvers.
