American sunglasses and eyewear brand Ray-Ban was founded in 1937, and is now one of the most recognised brands around the world. The brand began when New York-based medical equipment manufacturer Bausch & Lomb was asked to create sunglasses to protect US Army Air Service pilots that wouldn’t obscure vision; the Ray-Ban Aviator was born.
The brand continued to grow, creating styles that have now become iconic. In 1952, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer was created, gaining instant popularity in Hollywood, with James Dean wearing them in Rebel Without a Cause cementing their style status.
Ray-Ban sunglasses continue to be the brand of choice for celebrities and the fashion set alike, loved for their classic styles, high quality and durability. Shop the Ray-Ban collection at Coggles now.
