History of Ray-Ban
The technology of airplanes improved in the 1930s, which allowed pilots to fly for higher and longer distances. This is when glasses with green lenses, to cut out the glare without interfering with visibility, were introduced to US Air Force pilots. This marks the beginning of Aviators. The general public soon wanted to enjoy the same high-performance sunglasses that the pilots were using. Then, Ray-Ban went from being predominantly worn by people military to pop culture fashion.
Movies like Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) and Rebel Without a Cause (1995) featured Ray-Ban Wayfarer. During later years movies like Blue Brothers (1980) and Risky Business (1983) also included Wayfarer.
The Ray-Ban Clubmaster also made notable appearances with Tim Roth in Reservoir Dogs (1992) and Denzel Washington in Malcolm X (1992). Other models featured in films is Ray-Ban Predator in Men in Black (1997) by Will Smith and Tommy Lee Jones and in Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998), Johnny Depp wore a pair of Ray-Ban Shooter.
Ray-Ban, under the company of Bausch & Lomb, was on the brink of extinction before being bought out by Luxottica in 1998. This is because the quality of Ray-Ban significantly decreased in the ‘90s. Ray-Ban was using outdated tooling and its frames were flimsy, and became your typical “gas station glasses”. However, after the acquisition, they were able to quickly make a comeback and now Ray-Ban is still one of the most recognizable brands of sunglasses in the world.
