Sunglasses are a very important accessory for a woman. How should I choose sunglasses I saw a little while ago. Personally I consider very special aviator sunglasses Ray Ban.
Ray Ban is one of the most popular brands of sunglasses have emerged out of necessity, as the equipment “required” for American pilots. The famous General MacArthur used to wear them permanently and then and most of Hollywood stars.
History of the brand RAY BAN
Ray Ban story begins in the 1930s. Specifically, May 7, 1937. Date on which the first pair of Ray-Ban glasses baptized Anti-Glare opticians is patented by Bausch & Lomb. The requirement came some time before an American army lieutenant, who was in search of glasses able to protect your eyes from the scorching rays of the sun dressed in a pleasing design. The first sunglasses with anti-reflective lens had a light metal frame with gold plated. The lenses were green and infrared filters and UV successfully. Members of the aviation immediately adopted the new equipment and hence the nickname: Aviator Glasses, a term that defines all of the glasses today with this type of design.
International recognition follows during the Second World War, when General Douglas MacArthur arrives on the beach in the Philippines wearing Ray-Ban sunglasses , as I said above . After the ’50 brand extend his philosophy towards fashion and launch the first pair of sunglasses with plastic frame . The new invention receives the name Wayfarer. Becomes an overnight success , especially among women, despite the fact that initially at least , the brand was a rather dedicated men. A moment of glory brings the movie “Breakfast at Tiffany’s ” in 1961 , where Audrey Hepburn proudly wear a pair of Wayfarer .
List of celebrities who adopt the style of Ray- Ban increase from day to day, from Bob Dylan, Andy Warhol and James Dean Marilyn Monroe to John Lennon . Practically everyone loves the idea of sunglasses disco style only was 1970 brings a cloud shadow on the mark. At least success pales before Wayfarer design more extravagant proposals from some fashion designers such as Dior or Yves Saint Laurent . Ray- Ban is trying to cope entry fashion houses in the sunglasses market , but new products fail.
After the year of 2000 Ray-Ban understand that the answer is all in history and decided to return with a slightly modified design Wayfarer frames and more colors and prints … Basically, at the end of a period of over 10 years of silence, the brand is stronger than ever. As a sign of the value recognitions, many fashion designers are inspired by Ray-Ban models and especially the silhouette Aviators, an evergreen of contemporary design.
Aviator type sunglasses are chic, but extremely sexy. Assorted go both casual wear but also to stylish and glam. Which is a great advantage to recognize. Very few accessories you may find you can wear in many different occasions and in combination with any outfit.
