Some stories need no introduction. Meet the original icons of Ray-Ban.
It all started in the 1930s, as new airplanes allowed people to fly higher and farther, many US Air Force Pilot were reporting that the glare from the sun was giving them headaches and altitude sickness. A new kind of glasses was introduced with green lenses that could cut out the glare without obscuring vision, and the Ray-Ban brand was born.
Through every decade of its existence, Ray-Ban has shaped popular culture. From James Dean to Audrey Hepburn to Michael Jackson, Ray-Ban has proven indispensable for cultural icons who don’t want to be seen – but definitely want to be noticed. Own your pair of Ray-Ban today.
