The Shield One - Black (1402)
Yniq designed this unisex sunglass shield for the consumer who wants it all. We took inspiration for the shape from our iconic goggle Model Four and the intricate metal parts from Model Nine. We spared nothing and optimized the materials for the best performance and weight. Billet aircraft-grade aluminum parts were needed to achieve our goals. This shield takes everything to the next level. Made in Italy.
Yniq, Swedish luxury eyewear brand, announced the launch of an exclusive sunglasses collection with Olympic Champion and Yniq co-owner Lindsey Vonn. While working closely on launching multiple goggle styles, Yniq and Vonn have combined leading-edge science and impeccable design to create fashion forward goggles and are now using the same principles to design their first limited edition sunglass collection.
The first two styles, Lindsey Vonn Edition One & The Shield, are launching with the goal of taking sunglasses to the next level with distinct designs using the most high-quality materials on the market. Made in Italy, by careful hands of skilled artisans, the collection was created with the most modern computerized metal production machines and lens technology.
Vonn is known for her standard of excellence in everything she does from dominating the slopes to her entrepreneurial pursuits, and is excited to help create the most functional and high-fashion sunglasses on the market. With an eye for world class craftsmanship, Vonn and Yniq hand selected each material with the vision of creating a high-quality haute-couture sunglass that can be worn from Aspen to Mykonos.
