Ray-Ban was born from a brief put forward by the US Air Force pilots complaining of headaches and altitude sickness caused by harmful sun glares. What was initially meant as a safety device, eventually morphed into a fashion item and resulted in Ray-Ban creating the best-selling sunglasses of all time – the RB3025 Aviator, introduced to the public in 1936.
Going on to create the RB2132 Wayfarer in 1952 and the RB3016 Clubmaster in the 1980s, Ray-Ban have arguably made their mark on the world of sunglasses more than any other brand. Their designs have evolved over the years thanks to advanced technology and innovations, while new frames head to achieve the same recognition.
Ray-Ban are continually celebrated for providing freedom of expression to everyone, from Hollywood stars and athletes to royalty and fashion enthusiasts. Immortalised in eyewear history, the globally renowned designer has gone from strength to strength, with an identity that’s remained at the top of the fashion world for decades.
The latest collection by Ray-Ban features new everlasting metal and acetate shapes with a sleek design for impeccable, everlasting style. Bringing back vintage frames from the 90's vault and updating the 70s oversized style for an elegant look. New styles have also been added to the Ray-Ban Wayfarer family, revamping the iconic look with a sleek acetate design.
