Points Wayfarer for half a century are at the peakpopularity. This is the most popular model in the world. And yet - the most common forgery. Learn "Vufarer" can, that is called, a verst: a plastic frame, a trapezoidal lens with a rounded bottom edge. But the great Ray-Ban, the manufacturer of glasses, does not tolerate monotony and boredom, so it pleases fans with all sorts of updates almost every year.
Classic "Vuifari" - this is the Original2140. If you look closely, you can see the marking "Hand Made", located on the inner surface of the bow. Each model of glasses is really made using manual work, which gives the manufacturer the right to put such a stigma and partially causes a fairly high price.
The first Wayfarer glasses appeared in 1952. Their name turned out to be prophetic - they have been traveling all over the world for half a century. It is curious that initially they did not think at all as a doroguschy accessory. On the contrary, their plastic frame was designed to reduce the price, because in those days, mostly horn and metal glasses were produced, which were quite expensive. In 1985 Ray Ban's Wayfarer glasses won the prestigious American Design Council Award, thanks to a significant contribution to the improvement and development of American fashion. His "second birth" "Vufarer" survived in 1999, when the trademark Ray Ban was bought by the Italian company Luxottica Group. Every year the Wayfarer collection is replenished with new models, however the recognizable classic style of Ray Ban remains unchanged.
