Here is a peek into the fashion trends created by Ray-Ban.
Long back in the 1930s, the company manufactured its very first product, the Aviators. As it was created for the pilots to protect their eyes while flying, it bore the name ‘Aviator’.
Ray-Ban Aviators have never fallen out of fashion. All through these years, Aviators have been the preferred sunglasses for celebs as well as the man on the street. With different lens and frame colours, now Ray-Ban has an extensive collection of Aviators to suit every pocket and face.
In 1952, Ray-Ban introduced a new style of sunglasses, the Wayfarers. This particular style of Ray-Ban sunglasses made it big in 1961, when Audrey Hepburn wore a pair of dark black Wayfarers in the movie ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.
What followed was a huge commercial success for Wayfarers. Often termed as the best-selling design of sunglasses, Ray-Ban Wayfarers inspired a lot of eyewear brands to set shop.
Though the Wayfarers fell out of fashion after a long run, around 2000s, the glasses became popular once again. Ray-Ban has now introduced Wayfarers with more color options beyond the traditional palette to include some colours like turquoise, navy, white and red. The Ray-Ban Wayfarers are now also available with different lens and frame colours.
The Clubmasters had its beginning as Browline glasses. It was in 1947 that Shuron introduced Browline eyeglasses. These designs were quite popular in the 1950s and 60s. It was only in the 1980s that Browlines started appearing as sunglasses.
The Clubmaster of Ray-Ban was the third largest selling sunglasses style in the 80s. Many celebrities were spotted wearing Clubmasters during this period.
