Yunizon Eyewear, the pioneers behind Global Fit Technology, is proud to launch their core line of innovative, gender-neutral sunglasses. Co-Founded by eyewear industry vet Kimberly Van Schoyck-Riojas and corporate finance expert Rebecca Lay, the brand is positioned to become a top global, all-inclusive brand. The first to market Global Fit Technology extends beyond the traditional one size fits all approach to address to the issue of fit for every shape, size, and gender. The core collection introduces five hand-crafted silhouettes in three sizes that unify style and function to create eyewear that is built to be lived in and last. Built on the idea “Under One Sun,” Yunizon will donate a portion of all proceeds to the National Alliance on Mental Illness.
Traditional eyewear brands produce glasses by using general fit guidelines focused on Asian, Universal, Standard, and European fit. Yunizon’s unique Global Fit Technology creates an enhanced, accurate and comfortable design that appeals to a diverse society. Mastering a tailored fit through by having three distinct head widths in each style, slide prevention nose pads, modified temple design, ultra-lightweight premium materials and reduced pantoscopic angles for cheekbone comfort create a perfect-fitting pair of frames. Yunizon utilizes lightweight, shatterproof, and premium quality CR-39 lenses in all sunglasses.
Yunizon co-founder, Kimberly Van Schoyck-Riojas states, “Having worked in the eyewear industry as a senior product designer for over 15 years, I’ve seen sunglasses go from fashion accessory to daily wear. When sunglasses were purely an accessory, comfort and fit didn’t matter as much. However, given how consumer behavior has changed, particularly with millennials, it is critically important that today’s sunglasses are both trendy and comfortable. Yunizon is uncompromising on style with an unmatched focus on fit.”
In addition to being highly considerate of fit, all Yunizon products are gender-neutral, aligning with the brand’s values of free expression and inclusivity. Yunizon looks to go beyond the traditional approach and disrupt the eyewear industry with their universal designs, innovative fit, and high-quality products that appeal to today’s diverse society.
