The 10 Latest Ray Ban Sunglasses for Summer
The name ‘Ray-Ban’ is interchangeable with sunshine and looking incredibly stylish, thanks to the timeless eyewear the company has been selling since the 1930s. Here are some of Ray-Ban’s latest upgrades—and its timeless models—set to make a splash this summer.
RAY-Ban has been a sensation almost since its foundation, the ‘Aviator’ glasses that it developed to help combat the headaches and sickness that USAF pilots were experiencing due to glare from the sun, also establishing a look that everyone aspired to. Another of its classics is the Wayfarer, and, first seen worn by the late James Dean in 1955’s Rebel Without a Cause, it too quickly assumed an iconic, classic status. The same classic brands continue to be leading sellers for Ray-Ban today. Here are 10 of the latest Ray Ban sunglasses—some iconic lines, some new twists on classic themes—set to disappear like hot cakes this summer.
INSPIRED by the brand’s iconic Wayfarer sunglasses, the Justin line is regarded as one of the coolest Ray-Ban looks—revamped for 2016, with larger frames in fresh new colours, with a rubberised finish, and stunning coloured lenses. The glasses are available in traditional black, grey, brown and tortoise as well as red, violet, blue, fuchsia, turquoise and matte blue.
2. Wayfarer Classic
THIS update on the classic Wayfarer frame is a subtle contemporary twist on where it all began for Ray-Ban. This updated version features a smaller frame and a subtly softened eye shape. The Wayfarer Classic is available in various lens treatments, including crystal green, bi-gradient, G-15 polarised and mirror.
3. Clubmaster Classic
TAP into the classically timeless feel of Ray-Ban sunglasses with the Clubmaster Classic. Its retro 1950s influences make it a big favourite among cultural intellectuals. These iconic glasses are available in black or brown frames with crystal green lens treatment. They’re a statement set of shades that make a dramatically sophisticated impact.
4. Aviator Gradient
THE Aviator Gradient RB3025-001/51, one of the latest twists on classic pieces to be unveiled by Ray-Ban, is fast becoming a must-have item in its own right. The Aviator Gradient comes in range of colours. The RB3025 001/51, pictured, features gold metal frames with light brown gradient lenses made from crystal, which are anti-glare and scratch-resistant.
5. Wayfarer Folding Classic
Ray-Ban ‘s RB4105 Wayfarer Folding Classic sunglasses are a practical, portable and never-out-of-style option for the fashion-conscious. The highly durable nylon frames and advanced anti-glare and scratch-resistant lenses ensure that these ultra convenient glasses are made to last. Folding fames are also available in the Wayfarer Liteforce and Flash Lenses lines.
6. Aviator Classic
ORIGINALLY designed for US aviators in the 1930s, the Aviator Classic is another timeless statement piece, combining sophisticated styling with exceptional quality and comfort. The classic gold-framed Aviator is available in a variety of lens colours, including crystal brown, crystal green, and polarised, to name but a few.
7. Round Metal
ANOTHER retro classic, the RB3447-001 Round Metal Ray-Ban is inspired by styles popularised during the 1960s by counterculture icons such as John Lennon. This model’s combination of gold frames and Ray-Ban’s classic Green Classic G-15 lens treatment is a beautifully stylish blend that will get you noticed in the sun this summer. The glasses are also available in gunmetal and black frames, with a choice of lenses that includes light blue gradient, grey gradient, light brown gradient, and polarized.
The latest Ray-Ban collection features these fantastic RB4147 Highstreet sunglasses. The Highstreet RB4147-710/51 is available in tortoise and black frames, with gradient, coloured or polarised lenses. Pictured are the tort frames with brown-shaded anti-glare and scratch-resistant lenses.
INSPIRED by the original Ray-Ban Gatsby, the new Gatsby combines classic cool with contemporary edge with double-bridge frames, appealing to high-brow and more edgy, modern tastes. The premium quality frames come in a range of classic and contemporary colour combinations (tortoise-shell and gold, for example), and a choice between modern mirror (gold mirror is pictured), flash and solid lenses.
10. Predator 2
THE Ray-Ban RB2027 Predator 2s are a stylish variant on traditional rectangular sunglasses, distinguished by classic Ray-Ban signature logo on the thin temples. The inside of the nylon temple tips features a striped texture and the wrapped fit creates a sporty look that is simultaneously casual and athletic. These sunglasses are available in a black frame, and a range of lens treatments including polarised, mirror-grey solid, crystal-green solid, and silver gradient.
