Rag & Bone and luxury French eyewear brand Vuarnet have come together for a special collaboration launching in the Holiday 2016 season.
Combining Rag & Bone’s downtown, New York aesthetic with Vuarnet’s expertise in luxury sport, mineral glass sunglasses, the two companies form a collaboration based on a shared commitment to technical excellence, exemplary quality and modern design.
“It’s been really exciting to work with a brand that has such an epic story. We reinterpreted their classics in colorways that embody the Rag & Bone man and woman. Nothing overly elaborate – just cool styles that anyone can wear. The collaboration speaks to a mutual dedication to craftsmanship,” said Marcus Wainwright, Rag & Bone CEO, Founder & Creative Director.
The Rag & Bone x Vuarnet capsule collection revamped four Vuarnet styles in colorways and packaging. These include the iconic Glacier and Legend 02 styles, as well as two new styles, the Cable Car and District.
The sunglasses are designed in New York City and hand assembled in France. Expertly crafted from the finest mineral glass, the lenses deliver superior clarity, durability, and 100% protection against UV rays, harmful infrared and blue light.
Scratch and shock-resistant, each mineral glass lens takes one week of craftsmanship to produce. Quality is ensured by the unique expertise and continued small-scale production of Vuarnet’s factory in Meaux, France.
