Ray-Ban, a world leader when it comes to eyewear. We all know and have fallen in love with the eyeglasses and sunglasses that work for every occasion. A popular choice by celebrities all over the world. The brand has managed to stay on top with their popularity ever since the iconic Ray-Ban Aviator sunglasses were first worn by pilots.
Bausch & Lomb was the company who founded Ray-Ban back in 1936. Ray-Ban started, like many other brands, in the military world with the goal of creating sunglasses to protect pilots from the intense blue and white hues of the sky . They made a prototype for anti-reflective plastic frames made with green plastic lenses. The prototype removed the harsh blending from the sun that pilots had often complained about, without causing any vision reduction. After modernizing with metal frames, the “Ray-Ban Aviator” was born in 1938.
The eyewear brand gained further popularity during the 50’s in Hollywood with many Hollywood actors wearing the iconic sunglasses. James Dean was seen wearing a pair of Ray-Ban Wayfarer, which was a thicker plastic frame with smaller lenses than the Aviator, in the 1955-classic “Rebel Without a Cause” film and the style became instantly popular. By this time, Ray-Ban sunglasses was a renowned name and quickly became the world's leading sunglasses brand. In 1999 the business was sold to the Italian company Luxottica group. With time, Ray-Ban glasses became more famous and new frames were introduced. Today, Ray-Bans exist in many different shapes and colors, and all come with the Ray-Ban logo engraved in the lens.
