We Want! Ray-Ban Makes Its Vintage Classics New Again

rayban_main
James Dean cool. Risky Business cool. Even Breakfast At Tiffany's cool. Long before Nicole Ritchie and her new garde of bug-eyed, massive-lens-wearing sunglasses fans, there were the smaller, sleeker Ray-Bans. The purveyor of ultra-hip shades helped define what it meant to be effortlessly chic, which is why the new Legends Collection, just released by the sunny brand, is so on point.

Using old prints and vintage-lens colors, the line takes our much-loved Wayfarers shape and adds old-school crystal lenses. Inspired by the '50s and '60s — but with a pop of '80s color — each of these Wayfarer Legends tints and retro-fies the rounded, more shapely Laramie and give the Buddy Holly-esque Meteor an instant update. Hey, for turning 75-years-old, it's pretty amazing that Ray-Ban can stay so cool.
