The Aviator line was originally developed for pilots who needed special protection against the bright hues of the open sky. Today they work just as well for non-aviators, and they are fashionable enough to complement any style. Ray-Ban's Wayfarer line was developed as a mark of high fashion in the 1950s and 60s. Today the Wayfarer line is enjoying a tremendous resurgence among fashion-conscious shoppers looking for quality and style in a single package.
In 1929, the US military worked with Bausch & Lomb to create new eye wear for aviators who needed protection from both the sun and the wind. The product they eventually came up with paved the way for what would become the Aviator line of Ray-Ban sunglasses. Ray-Ban was officially launched in 1937.
In the 80 years since, Ray-Ban has become synonymous with high-quality sunglasses. Though the brand was acquired from Bausch & Lomb by Luxottica in 1999, nothing has been compromised by the current Italian owners. If anything, Luxottica has strengthened the Ray-Ban name.
Luxottica has continued making Ray-Ban signature Aviator and Wayfarer products. However, they have expanded the brand with new lines: New Wayfarer, Clubmaster, Justin, Erika, and Round. Each pair of Ray-Ban sunglasses is meticulously designed to ensure the finest quality and the most exquisite good looks. You will not find a better pair of sunglasses anywhere in the UK at a comparable price.
