The story of Ray-Ban glasses
The legendary Ray-Ban glasses: a bit of history...
Ray-Ban is an eyewear brand created in 1937 by the American company Bausch & Lomb. At the request of an aviator, Lieutenant Macready, “protective, panoramic and enveloping” aviator glasses equipped with the amazing G15 solar lens have been developed. After the creation of the “ Aviator ” model, commissioned by the US Air Force in 1936, Ray-Ban glasses were immediately adopted by the US army. Many models are then produced keeping the innovative spirit of the brand round metal glasses , the famous Round , glasses in acetate and metal like the illustrious Clubmaster or acetate glasses, the Wayfarer. The brand counts among its most famous muses the Blues Brothers, but also Tom Cruise and Amelia Earhart.
But beyond muses, Ray-Ban also has a large number of celebrity fans: Madonna, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger, Jude Law, Rihanna, Brad Pitt... the list goes on! Ray-Ban glasses were initially made in the United States, but since the takeover of the brand by the Italian manufacturer Luxottica , the world's No. 1 eyewear manufacturer, in 1987, they are made in Italy, Milan or China, Brazil depending on the models and the final destinations. Nevertheless, the collections retain an American-inspired imprint.
