Ray-Ban is the ultimate sunglasses brand. Iconic, steeped in tradition, built on style and functionality. Designed for the US Air Force as a mechanism for reducing glare at high altitudes, the original Ray-Ban green lens and anti-glare sunglasses were a revolution in eyeware. The Ray-Ban brand was registered in 1937, marking the beginning of a rich legacy in eyeware innovation. 1937 was also the year the original Ray-Ban sunglasses became available to the general public. The metal frame and large lens construction are instantly recognisable and are one of the most enduring styles to this day. Nicknamed the Ray-Ban Aviator, the style is iconic, much copied, but never bettered.
Synonymous with not just the Air Force, but also with Hollywood culture and Music, Ray-Ban Aviators are still a key style within the Ray-Ban range. Other classic styles followed the Aviator with the introduction of the Shooter and the Outdoorsman, designed for recreational activities and outdoor leisures. 1952 saw the introduction of a new style, another icon in style and another enduring classic, the famous Wayfarer. This time with a thick plastic frame, the Wayfarer added a touch of glamour and attitude to the collection and is another of the Ray-Ban styles which has achieved many film and music videos appearances. Thanks to the likes of Clint Eastwood in Dirty Harry, John Lee Hooker and Bob Dylan, the Wayfarer has become an instantly recognisable style, recently picked up along with the Aviator by exponents of the modern Indie movement.
Soon to follow was another celebrated style, the classic Caravan style. With a squared off lens, the Caravan was intended as an alternative to the hugely sucessful Ray-Ban Aviators. Other iconic styles in the Ray-Ban portfolio include the timeless Retro Clubmaster, with a neat browline feature and combintion frame. The famous RB3447 features a Retro rounded lens and is very much inspired by 1960's Mod culture and resembles the classic John Lennon style frame.
