These Ray-Ban RB4253 62377X 53 Plastic Pilot sunglasses in shiny grey are an incredibly modern, exciting interpretation of Ray-Ban’s classic Aviator design. The shiny grey frame matches perfectly with the gradient lilac flash coloured lenses.
Bausch & Lomb, the big American eye health company, founded Ray-Ban in 1937. Their first big success was the Aviator sunglass design, which has become an eyewear staple around the world. It was originally developed for the US Air Force, who had asked them to design a pair of sunglasses that could protect its pilots’ eyes from the sun. the Aviator design was made to cover more of the wearer’s eyes than any sunglasses has before and to prevent sunlight from getting to the pilots’ eyes from below or at the sides. The fashion world also got hold of Aviators and loved their top-heavy, completely original design. These Ray-Ban Plastic Pilot sunglasses are a twist on the classic Aviator design. They have a shiny grey frame, with copper accents, and 53mm lenses with a beautiful gradient lilac flash effect. The lenses are a filter category 3 and they provide complete protection from UV rays.
