Ray-Ban® Sunglasses: unmistakable, timeless and classic. The name itself is evocative of Old Hollywood glamour, conjuring up images of James Dean in the iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarer® Sunglasses or Holly Golightly adorned in a pair in ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’. But the beauty of this undying brand is the enduring popularity – these frames aren’t relegated to the past. Small style tweaks, new takes on old favourites and the best in today’s technology mean they’re perfect for everyday wear even now; over 75 years after the brand began.
Find out why the brand has stood the test of time amongst the hot collection of sunnies for men and women, available at Vision Direct.
The first Ray-Ban Sunglasses were developed in 1937, created by Bausch & Lomb to assist pilots in keeping their vision unobstructed while flying at high altitudes where the effect of the sun was proving detrimental. The result was Ray-Ban Aviator™ Sunglasses, a design that is still in vogue to this day. The patented technology was ahead of its class, and as the brand quickly improved and expanded on it, Ray-Ban Sunglasses solidified itself as the go-to product for fashionable and practical eyewear. First appearing in 1953, Ray-Ban Original Wayfarer Sunglasses were the next big name style added to the repertoire. An immediate hit, the style of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer sunglasses’ status is far-reaching, with megawatt celebrities ranging from Tom Cruise to Johnny Depp to Beyonce all sporting pairs. But luckily, the Ray-Ban sunglasses collection at Vision Direct is not reserved for the Hollywood elite!
