The RayBan brand is responsible for giving us two of the most iconic pair of glasses shape in the eyewear world. Dating all the way back to 1937, where Bausch and Lomb were approached by a US General, to create sunglasses that would be stylish but also practical, to wear in the Force. The brand introduced the aviators which became instantly popular among people and celebrities who wanted a fashion accessory. After seeing a huge success, the brand brought us another pair of iconic glasses; the Wayfarers.
The RayBan New Wayfarer RB2132 is currently a best-selling pair of sunglasses. The model replicates the classic Wayfarer original sunglasses but with a slightly modern edge. The aesthetics are more petite and delicate for a smoother fit. The glasses are unisex and are merely updated for comfort. They look exactly the same as the iconic frames with the famous pin hinge detailing on the front of the frames and Ray-Ban signature on the arms.
The Ray-Ban RB2132 gives the best UV sun protection. The brand is highly respected in the optics world for providing the best eye protection. If it was good enough for the US Force, it surely is good enough for the rest of us. The lenses eliminate glare and enhance colour clarity. The design is timeless. The original was released in 1952 and now over fifty years later, remains trendy and cool, meaning it will no doubt remain fashionable for another fifty years. The shape was new as it played on the geek chic look and was seen as trendy. The Wayfarer shape is now a classic glasses shape in the eyewear world and for other brands.
The Ray Ban New Wayfarer RB2132 in 901/58 black/polarized crystal green is a popular colour. The model comes in many different colours but this colour sells particular well as it is classic but has a stylish edge. On the right lens, the RayBan logo is etched on the corner which just boasts cool. The glasses have an All-American/vintage look and with vintage fashion being so in style, these are the perfect choice for you.
