History of the Ray-Ban Aviator

History of the Ray-Ban Aviator

The Ray-Ban® Aviator™ sunglasses are one of the most enduring fashion accessories of the last hundred years, and though the classic gold frame and dark green lenses combo may be the most iconic model, there is a wide variety of styles and designs under the Ray-Ban Aviator banner. Here are some of our favorites:

RB4211 Aviator Light Ray II 646/3R

The Ray-Ban Aviator Light Ray II pack three different funky features – transparent plastic frames, lightweight titanium temples and flashy mirrored lenses that combine to form a really unique pair of sunglasses, even within the diverse Ray-Ban Aviator range.

RB3025 Aviator Distressed 177/33

A new arrival for 2015, the Ray-Ban Aviator Distressed are actually designed to look older than they are – see the scratches and corrosion on the frames? They’re meant to look like that! Of course, the Green G-15 lenses don’t have the distressed look like the frame. And with ivory-feel temple tips, the Ray-Ban Aviator Distressed give you that vintage look straight out of the box.

The so-called Ray-Ban Aviator Full Color model boasts thicker, colored frame rims that make them instantly recognizable. Of course, the large tear-drop shape lenses are always the main feature, but that subtle touch of style still sets them apart. They’re available in a variety of colors, too, including red, green, brown and pink.

RB3025 Aviator Flash Lenses 112/17

Arguably the coolest of them all, the Ray-Ban Aviator Flash Lenses models have mirrored lenses which are one of the most dominant trends of recent seasons. For our money, the combination of gold frames and bright blue lenses is unbeatable, whether you’re at the beach or in the middle of the urban jungle, these versatile shades will never feel out of place.

If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Virtually unchanged since 1937, the original Ray-Ban Aviator are perhaps the most iconic of all sunglasses of all time. Large, 62mm G-15 lenses, gold frames, and transparent temple tips: these are the true pilot’s sunglasses, from the Second World War to today, and of course, in Tom Cruise’s Top Gun.  As functional as they are stylish, these glasses give your eyes great coverage, protecting you from the sun’s harmful rays.
