Ray-Ban has been having a field day with materials lately. We've seen everything from solid gold aviators to leather Warfarers and even an aluminum take on the always-classic Clubmaster. So what's next? How about some denim on your face?
Now, it might sound like an odd fit for a pair of sunglasses, but take a good look at the frame and you'll have to agree that it makes for a good pair of shades. They've taken the Wayfarer shape and swathed strong layers of denim with polypropylene and acetate that are fused in a stratification process that reaches temperatures of up to 200 degrees to create each frame.
