In the 1930s, the Ray-Ban parent company Bausch & Lomb was commissioned to develop aviation goggles, which protects the US pilots from strong sunlight. That was the birth of Ray-Ban Aviator. Today, they are available in many variants, which are usually priced around 150 euros. Typically, the classic aviator features a gilded metal frame and green or brown lenses. Based on the unmistakable drop shape of 1937, there are now various sub-collections: The models of the Aviator Havana Collection are inspired by the retro charm of Cuba. In the Aviator Gradient Collection, the glasses are tinted with discreet color gradients. There is also the handy folding aviator folding and design specials like the Aviator Outdoorsman with its distinctive crossbar. Ray-Ban sets no limits in the color palette for the Aviator: The glasses are available in bright blue, orange, red, pink and green as well as mirrored or shaded. The frames are not always in metal look, but also in one color or, for example, with camouflage pattern. In addition, among other things, extra-durable aviators are manufactured.
