Ray-Ban is a brand of sunglasses and eyeglasses founded in 1937 by American company Bausch & Lomb. The brand is best known for their Wayfarer and Aviator styles of sunglasses. In 1999, Bausch & Lomb sold the brand to the Italian Luxottica Group.
Ray-Ban sunglasses are by far the most sought after on the market, and it’s easy to see why. The simplicity and cleanness of their designs made them as popular in the 1930’s as they are today, and as they will be 20 years from now. They were the first ever brand to introduce 100% UV protection, mirror coatings and colour enhanced lenses, and the uncompromising quality of their shades are totally unrivalled in the industry. With just one mantra, ‘the most fashionable thing you can be is you’, every pair of sunglasses Ray-Ban produce become a milestone of design and lays the path for other brands to follow.
