Our Story

THE WHO AND WHY

KIMBERLY VAN SCHOYCK, CO-FOUNDER

Kim spent twenty years working at leading eyewear firms in design and production. She saw first-hand the fit issues suffered by people of all backgrounds and how big corporates ignored these consumers. She herself had difficulties finding sunglasses to fit her narrow face. There had to be a better way to give these consumers the freedom to shop without restrictions. This inspired her to develop Yunizon Global Fit, which solves these issues without compromising style or quality.

REBECCA LAY, CO-FOUNDER

Originally from Melbourne Australia, Bec has lived and worked in Sydney, London and New York as a financial advisor to the world’s largest firms. However, her true passion is the underground music scene and eyewear. She was frustrated by the limited sunglass options available to her as someone with a low bridge nose. While the original concept of Yunizon was high quality raving sunglasses, she is proud that Yunizon has evolved into a platform that solves a real issue and promotes meaningful values.

Why we support mental health

Yunizon co-founders, Kim and Bec, continuously promote the importance of mental health. As new mothers juggling unforgiving corporate careers, to dealing with personal loss and chronic pain, what they have learned is that a balanced state of mind is crucial. We’ve all had people in our lives suffer through a mental health crisis yet most don’t get the care they need. Let’s erase the stigma together. Yunizon hopes to be part of the change by donating 5% of profits to mental health charities, National Alliance on Mental Illness and Beyond Blue.

DESIGNED TO FIT YOU

Every Yunizon frame starts in our New York design studio and is inspired by the city and its people. The city is vibrant and diverse, and everywhere you go, you are surrounded by culture, music and art. From vibrancy and diversity, good things come. We channeled this energy to develop colorful, unique and all- inclusive products. Our sunglasses are created to complement you and your lifestyle... whoever you are, whatever your “thing” is; Yunizon will prove to be the perfect fit.

YOU CAN HAVE IT ALL

DIFFERENT & SUBTLE

We care about fit as much as we do about style and quality. It shouldn’t be an either-or situation. We are one of the few brands to provide three headwidths in every style; this is one of five major innovations to sunglass design to ensure maximum comfort and wearability.

We have also added thoughtful details to our eyewear, from the chiseled angles on our colorful frames to the custom inscriptions on our angled temples to create an undeniable sense of style.

HIGH QUALITY LOW PRICE

Our sunglasses are hand crafted and hand polished using premium cellulose acetate. This color-rich, hypoallergenic material provides for a comfortable fit yet durable enough to withstand daily wear. Solid colors are vivid, while complex textures (like tortoises, horns, etc.) are uniquely blended to create a one-of-a-kind layered depth.

 

We use premium quality CR-39 lenses in all our sunglasses.This lightweight, shatter-resistant lens offers amazing optical clarity and offers 100% UVA / UVB protection.
