The Virgins x Ray Ban

The Ray-Ban Aviator is about as timeless as it gets. Originally designed for pilots in the 1930s, the style is a favorite from Hollywood to Williamsburg and everywhere in between. Ray-Ban is updating their look by introducing their new line Ray-Ban Aviator: The Essentials. The styles feature ice-blue, fuchsia, and 22kt gold frames. Whether or not you consider them to be “essential” may directly correlate with how many ironic T-shirts you have in your closet but who are we to judge? Ray-Ban has also recruited indie rock favorites The Virgins (see above) and The Plasticines to trick out their own special pairs for a limited collaboration. These custom styles feature vision-obscuring illustrations. So, cool as they may be, it might not be such a bad thing that they’re not actually for sale.
