Few brands have become as synonymous with their signature product as Ray Ban, which has been a leading eyewear brand since 1937. The first officially-released Ray Ban style was originally designed for Air Force pilots and is arguably the most famous pair of sunglasses in history: the Aviator. In the decades since, Aviators have remained popular, and even today they are a staple in the fashion world. In 1952, Ray Ban introduced the Wayfarer, another iconic sunglasses line that has maintained popularity. In addition to these classic designs, Ray Ban has continued to develop cutting-edge technologies, including advanced polycarbonate lenses that have allowed designers more freedom when creating frames, while simultaneously increasing durability.
