Considered a fashion icon from the moment they were launched in 1952, the Wayfarer has been adding a touch of instant intrigue to outfits ever since.
Characterized by a distinctive trapezoidal frame, sturdy arms, and a faintly masculine look, Wayfarers stood out from the sea of wire-framed eyewear that came before it. Created by eyewear designer Raymond Stegeman for the Ray-Ban company, this once-patented design enjoyed waves of popularity in the 50′s, 60′s, and 80′s, but lost steam to wraparound styles that dominated the 90′s.
Thanks to trendsetters such as Chloë Sevigny and Mary-Kate Olsen, we retro lovers have been able to enjoy this new, modern take on the sunnies. Our Unisexy Glasses capture these starlets’ looks for a classically chic summer look.
