When you hear the words Ray-Ban you should be thinking of one thing and one thing only and that is Tom Cruise sliding and dancing around in his undies and socks wearing a cool set of shades in the 1983 movie ‘Risky Business’.
Cruise sported Ray Ban Wayfarers sunglasses in the movie and they became as big of a hit as the movie itself but prior to this milestone Ray Ban had been perfecting it’s creation for 46 year.
The original Ray Ban Sunglasses were launched in 1936, when they were commissioned by the US Air force to develop the first innovative Anti-Glare technology with a tinted material that filtered out infra-red and ultraviolet rays. At the time, the original Ray Ban sunglasses set the standard for comfort, eye protection, and style in the military and prompted an iconic image of General Douglas Macarthur wearing a pair of Ray Bans as he landed on the beach in the Philippines during World War 11. Even the most glamorous Hollywood starlet Audrey Hepburn wore classic Wayfarer’s in Breakfast at Tiffany’s.
The Ray-Ban Collection is timeless, authentic and imaginative, and remains true to its classic heritage.
Ray-Ban sunwear provides timeless style with models like the classic Wayfarer and Aviator while also offering exciting new styling innovations in keeping with today’s contemporary urban fashion. Each pair of Ray Ban’s is crafted to uphold the superior standards that have made Ray Ban’s a legend for over 70 years.
