RAY-BAN SUNGLASSESInfluential style for trendsetters
With a history that dates back to the 1920s, Ray-Ban sunglasses were originally used to help pilots shield their eyes from the sun’s strong rays as airplanes allowed people to fly higher than ever before. The ‘Anti-Glare’ model was introduced with plastic frames and green lenses that could cut out the glare without obscuring the pilot’s vision, before being remodelled with a metal frame the following year and rebranded as the Ray-Ban Aviator. A style that is still loved and worn universally today.
Throughout the 1950s and 60s Ray-Ban sunglasses continued to grow in popularity thanks to the huge influence the brand had in Hollywood. The Retro-Wingtip style in particular was made renowned through being worn by James Dean in Rebel Without a Cause and Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s. Fast-forward to present day and film stars and musicians are still drawn to the renowned brand. Robert Pattinson and Katy Perry are just two of the many A-listers you’ll see donning a pair of Ray-Ban Retro-Wingtips. A pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses is an absolute must-have for every style-lover and trendsetter’s collection, so invest in your pair today
