Celebrating 75 years at the top legendary sunglasses super brand Ray-Ban continue to rule the roost in the world of designer sunglasses. This season’s Ray-Ban sunglasses sees lots of exciting new colours, prints and textures added to the iconic Aviator, Wayfarer & Clubmaster styles.
In 1937, Bausch & Lomb developed anti-glare Aviator sunglasses under the brand name Ray-Ban. They, as the name suggests, were originally designed for pilots, following a request from the United States Army Air Corps to create elegant looking sunglasses with UV protection (fashionable and practical). Loved by the pilots, the style soon became a popular fashion accessory when several photographs were taken of General Douglas MacArthur wearing them when he returned to the Philippines during World War II.
Over the years, Ray-Ban has continued to innovate, giving us Wayfarers and Clubmasters to go alongside the ever-present and now iconic Aviator range. This innovation, combined with a dedication to their philosophy of “individuality of style” has seen Ray-Ban garner and maintain a position as the market leader in designer sunglasses.
As well as being loved by rock stars and prominent film stars for the best part of a century, Ray-Ban sunglasses have enjoyed an unrivalled presence in countless films and television shows. In fact, their presence in a number of films goes beyond cameo. It is no exaggeration to say that important, culture defining films such as Top Gun, Reservoir Dogs, Blues Brothers and Men in Black, would simply not have been the same without Ray-Bans.
Our range of Ray-Ban sunglasses includes iconic styles such as Ray-Ban wayfarers, Ray-Ban aviators and Ray-Ban clubmasters, all with the rich heritage, iconic style and high quality, hand-made finish for which the brand has become famous. Whether you’re looking for the original fighter pilot cool or a more contemporary chic in line with Ray-Ban ambassadors such as Brad Pitt and Kate Moss, we have the right pair for you.
