Be in style. Always.
There’s no need for an introduction when it comes to Ray-Ban sunglasses, they are an American icon, a pop-culture staple, and synonymous with some of the most stylish people from the last 80 years. From Marilyn Monroe to John Belushi in the Blues Brothers - the glasses are a cultural symbol of our times.
From the US Airforce to mainstream street style
Born in 1936, the brand itself was created out of practicality, when US Colonel John A. Macready needed something to stop the glare of the sun when flying high. He designed a pair of sunglasses with plastic frames and green lenses, so as not to obscure his vision, and this was how the world-renowned Ray-Ban Aviator was born. The rest, as they say, is history.
The signature models
Following the Aviator, in the 1950s the Wayfarer was introduced, designed by American optical designer Raymond Stegeman ‘to be a mid-century classic to rival the Eames chairs’. The style is still one of the brand’s most cult buys. Nowadays, Ray-Ban’s signature unisex styles range from the classics, and revisited versions of them, to totally new designs. All frames are made from high-quality materials, including durable, single-cut acetate - which are not just timeless but also made to last.
Wear them your way
Ray-Ban has been the go-to in eyewear design for over 80 years, proof that they never go out of fashion. These are wardrobe essentials, like your favorite blue jeans. Wear them every day for years to come: their ageless silhouettes will suit any style.
