Reinterpreting Ray-Ban Wayfarer

Posted on the 19 June 2015 by Opticalh @OpticalH


Wayfarer sunglasses are one of the Ray-Ban’s undeniable icons and the sunglasses industry’s too. They’ve become an important part of pop culture and so they are one of the most frequently picked up designs.

Created in 1952, the Wayfarer Classic model was first popular among musicians, celebrities and artists and later it was turned into a symbol. Their invention meant a break with old and heavy metallic frames.

Nowadays anybody with a minimum of sense of style has their Wayfarer as part of their basic wardrobe. No matter if they are the classic black ones or whatever new color and material combinations, there are many alternatives to define your own personality.

Their distinctive shape is the key to their success: a slightly trapezoid-like silhouette that breaks with tradition and issues a challenge to some extent. Robust thick temples provide a balance that finish the design.

Black Wayfarer glasses are the most traditional and adaptable. In this case, the elegant black color – that goes with everything – gives up the main role to the frame shape.


Reinterpreted Wayfarer: the Cosmo collection

One of the collections that take up this iconic model and reinvents it is the Original Wayfarer Cosmo. The finish touch of these glasses is surprising: they change colour, having an effect never seen before.
