Blue denim is all the rage this season, and Ray Ban won’t be left out. Their classic Wayfarers are given a rugged, work wear treatment that will surely impress James Dean if this could go back to the 1950s. What astounded us at first sight is the frame. It’s made of actual denim fabric which reportedly took two years to develop, and is layered through a compression technique that yields its solidness. The denim, although not from coveted producers such as Kurabo Mills or selvedged, sport a texture and a blue that will pair with any of your expensive denim threads. The frame feels tough in the hands, but strangely has a soft appeal. As Mr Dean once said, ” Only the gentle are ever really strong”.
Ray Ban Original Wayfarer Denim is available at leading eyewear stockists and Sunglass Hut nationwide
