History of Aviator Sunglasses
This particular style of sunglasses is one of the earliest to become widely popular and regarded as a fashion item.
Aviator sunglasses replaced the cumbersome flight goggles of the past because they were:
- Lighter in weight
- Thinner on the face
- Stylish to wear
The style really caught the attention of the American public through pictures of their heroes published in the newspapers during the second world war.
Just like "Coca Cola" did, Bausch & Lomb capitalised on this incredible branding opportunity and fused aviators into the American culture by naming the style "Ray Bans".
The style enjoyed a resurgence in Hollywood films like Top Gun and worn by many high profile celebrities including Michael Jackson, Brad Pitt and Madonna to name a few from the long list!
