In an era dominated by wire framed sunglasses, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer broke the mold thanks to plastic molding technology. Originally designed and on sale in the 1950's the Wayfarer has been imitated the world over.
In the 1980's Hollywood played an enormous part in the upward trajectory of this model when Tom Cruise was seen wearing a pair in a movie. After Hollywood came the music industry and even lyrics in songs. Make no mistake the Wayfarer is a legend in its own form, the likes of which we are unlikely to see in the fashion & lifestyle market again.
Now, it just took a big leap forward - it's foldable! Clever hinge systems at the bridge and in two places on the arm provide you with the ability to wrap a perfect parcel into a convenient small package. Great for stowing when you're on the go or done for the day.
As ever, its not just about looks with Ray-Ban, they have the depth of technology to back up the uber cool styling too. Visual perfection isn't just in aesthetics's but also in the optical capacity and their lens clarity and comfort superb. There's no distortion thanks to the diamond tools that cut the lenses, they have great scratch resistancy and the impact testing meets all industry standards.
