Ray-Ban is the brand all other sunglasses aspire to. “They’re a classic and are here to stay,” as Marie Claire puts it, but they’re not limited to sunglasses. From this autumn, you can also buy Ray-Ban Prescription Glasses at New Lenses.
The Cool Factor
Ray-Bans have been the essence of cool since 1937, iconically worn by film-stars from James Dean to Tom Cruise, and rock stars such as Bob Dylan and Bob Marley. Their Aviator and Wayfarer models are among the leading style classics of the 20th century — and beyond.
The appeal of Ray-Bans shows no sign of dying out. On this year’s CoolBrands list of the coolest brands in Britain, as reported in The Independent, Ray-Ban came second, only outdone by the ubiquitous Apple.
A Design Classic for All Seasons
Autumn may not be the obvious time of year to promote sunglasses, but even the stars aren’t only attracted to Ray-Bans for the tinted lenses. In April, for instance, Vogue showed Sam Smith proudly sporting Ray-Ban reading glasses.
Whether you prefer the classic shades look, prescription glasses for a whole range of uses, or even Ray-Ban frames with plain glass simply to show off your fashion accessories, some of that cool factor is bound to rub off.
