About the BrandRay-Ban’s very first product was a pair of highly specialised sunglasses. Since then, their sunglasses have been chosen by film stars, celebrities and the fashion conscious for their quality and style.
Ray-Ban’s HistoryThe first Ray-Ban sunglasses design was the legendary ‘Aviator’. Although today this model is loved for its style, it was originally made for a specific, functional purpose. During the 1930s it was noticed that American Air Force pilots were increasingly suffering from headaches. Aeroplane technology had recently been improved, allowing for greater flight distances at higher altitudes. The exposure to extremely bright light and sun glare was blamed for the pilots’ headaches. Bausch & Lomb, manufacturers of medical equipment, were commissioned by the Air Force to develop a solution. Rising to the challenge, they created the Aviator in 1937. These sunglasses addressed the specific needs of the suffering pilots by eliminating sun glare. This technology ‘banned’ the sun’s ‘rays’ leading to the brand’s name. Following the success of their first sunglasses, Ray-Ban carried on designing eyewear for specific purposes. In 1939 they released a new version of the Aviator for use by hunters and fishermen. This model featured a special sweat bar to prevent sweat falling into the wearer’s eyes. The Wayfarer hit the shelves in 1952 and became popular when Hollywood stars began wearing the glasses in films. You’ll notice Ray-Ban sunglasses in many films from this time with the most famous example perhaps the Aviator sunglasses worn in Top Gun
