Ray Ban RB2140 Wayfarer - Designer Eyewear
Tthe Wayfarer is now regarded as one of the best selling styles of sunglasses to ever have been created and is therefore often replicated by other designer brands due to the versatility and popularity of the design. Manufactured by Ray-Ban in 1952, the Wayfarer with its thick plastic frame, was a revolutionary change from the previous metal frames that were continually used when designing sunglasses. In 1980, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer made a huge revival on the style scene having being featured in iconic films including ‘The Blues Brothers’, ‘Risky Business’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’ and today, the style is a huge favourite with Ray-Ban consistently updating the classic style with the use of vibrant colours and patterns to keep the Wayfarer modern and appealing to a trend focused market.
The Ray-Ban Wayfarer is consistently seen on bands, celebrities and audience members at music festivals and style icons such as Sienna Miller, Jessica Alba, Robert Pattinson and Paris Hilton have all been spotted in the classic black and coloured, contemporary versions of the Ray-Ban Wayfarer. With its sturdy thick frame that angles slightly up and outwards at the exterior edges, and a wide array of frame and lens colour options, the Ray-Ban Wayfarer is a classic style that never fails to impress.
