ABOUT MARINE SERRE
From the outset, Marine Serre’s critically acclaimed collections garnered a cult following. A radically independent brand has emerged with a hybrid mixture of classic French couture shapes, sportswear references and fabrics. The House pioneers the production of new garments based on end-of-life materials, a practice Serre labels as Regenerated, and that has been fundamental to her ethos since her debut collection in 2016.The Regeneration practice marks a revolutionary commitment to circularity in the fashion industry’s global network that encompasses the sourcing of fabrics, production, and the design process as a whole. The sevalues are melded with a combination of cultural and epochal references, that experiment with the idea of inventing new cultures – a new mode, a new way of living.
VUARNET the iconic French eyewear and mountaineering brand founded by Jean VUARNET in 1957. A pioneer and innovator, Jean VUARNET was a French alpine ski racer who won the Olympic gold medal at Squaw Valley, California in 1960. He professed his love of mountains and nature and created the car-free French ski resort Avoriaz with a bold vision for sustainability in 1966. VUARNET produces its lenses in France, using traditional techniques and qualities of functional mountain frames. The VUARNET mineral lenses are 100% natural and recyclable, a rarity in eyewear. Since its creation, the brand has supported its community with innovative lenses and iconic frames designed for sports and leisure. The Lynx™️ Technology, which offers the best protection from sunlight is a VUARNET creation and trademark. Today, VUARNET is experiencing a relaunch cherishing its 1960s daring and stylish French ski roots, the nostalgy of artisanal craftsmanship and the warm way of life.
