Since its inception in 1937, the Ray-Ban Aviator has been an iconic part of pop culture history. Though originally designed for pilots and aviation enthusiasts, the Aviator became an instantly recognisable frame that is just as popular today. Each pair of sunglasses in the new capsule collection come with an exclusive case, with the frame featured in the recently released Top Gun: Maverick movie.
Aviator Classic (RB 3025 W3400)
In 1937, Ray-Ban created a revolutionary frame to help protect pilots from the sun’s glare as they started to fly higher. This frame was the classic Aviator that generations have known to wear and love. These classic sunglasses are a timeless model that combines great aviator styling with quality, performance and comfort.
Shooter (RB 3138 W3401)
The following year in 1938, Ray-Ban diversified from pilots to anyone who craved an outdoor lifestyle. The Shooter was launched, offering a vintage and unique twist to the Aviator Classic. Additional aviation-inspired features include a vanity bullet hole in the centre of the frame and extra thin temples to enhance wide peripheral vision. These exceptional sunglasses are built with a double bridge and acetate brow bar.
Outdoorsman (RB 3030 W3402)
Two years after the launch of the original Aviator, Ray-ban launched the Outdoorsman. Originally called “Skeet Glass” and specifically designed for groups who enjoyed hunting, shooting and fishing, the top bar sets it apart from its counterparts, including crystal lenses and cable temples for a more secure fit. The Outdoorsman are a bold take on a timeless style, ideal for those who like to make a statement.
