Yunizon Eyewear Combines Innovative Fit Technology, Gender Neutral Styles, and Mental Health Awareness

Yunizon Eyewear, the pioneers behind Global Fit, 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 extends beyond the traditional one size fits all approach to address the issue of fit for every shape, size,and gender. Each retailing for $159, the core collection introduces hand-crafted silhouettes in three sizes that unify style and function to create eyewear that is built to be lived in and lasting. 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 creates an enhanced, accurate and comfortable design that appeals to a diverse society. Mastering a tailored fit by having three distinct head widths in each style, slide prevention nose pads, modified temple design, ultra-lightweight premium materials, and reduced pantoscopic angle for cheekbone comfort create a perfect fitting pair of frames. Yunizon utilizes light weight, shatter proof, and premium quality CR-39 lenses in all sunglasses.

Yunizonco-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.

Stockwomann Gender-Neutral Store Floor

Known for its bold campaigns, such as changing its name to Stockwomann in celebration of International Women’s Day, the department store is now launching a gender-neutral shopping floor – located physically between men’s and women’s, on the 1.5 floor.

The floor features well-known brands such as Acne Studios, Calvin Klein and Marimekko, that have previously incorporated unisex styles in their collections. Fashionistas all over the world are exploring the possibilities of creating a bespoke style by combining items from renowned fashion houses, such as Burberry and Kenzo, and buying liberally from both departments.

The name of the shopping floor concept, One Way, speaks for itself. There is only one way in style; your own. With One Way, Stockmann wants to question old-fashioned norms and limits when it comes to dressing.

“Department stores, especially, tend to stick with outdated norms when it comes to how they allocate their offering under different departments. At the same time consumers are already buying quite liberally from both departments.”, says Laura Paikkari, Creative Director, TBWA\Helsinki.

“We believe that men’s and women’s departments should function as guidelines to finding the clothes that best fit your shape and style rather than definite rules to follow”, says Anna Salmi, CCO at Stockmann.

“With One Way we wanted to style and curate a selection of clothes that might not be designed ‘unisex’ but that work perfectly for all people. Our aim is to inspire our customers to forget the rules and shop unbiasedly,” Salmi adds.

“This is definitely a statement for equality. And brands that take a stand for what they believe in are the ones who shape the future.” Paikkari finishes.

As fashion month begins this week, it remains to be seen whether gender-neutrality will become the dominating trend this fall.
