In 1952, designer Raymond Stegeman created the first pair of the now iconic wayfarer frames. Instead of using metal, Raymond chose to design his specs with plastic, using large, cat eye lenses with an exaggerated point at the temples that connect the wide arms. The bold design enjoyed instant success, thanks to its popularity with movie stars of the day.
Though the “wayfarer” name generally only refers to the glasses released by Ray-Ban that use the style, the term broadly covers similar designs offers by other luxury brands. Choose from a variety of colors and styles for both men and women, and find the pair of plastic specs that fits your own sense of fashion. From readers to sunglasses, wayfarers can make anyone look like a star.
