From military equipment to fashion fad.
The aviator style came to life thanks to a request from the US Air Force in the early 1930s. The New York-based optical company Bausch & Lomb was commissioned to create sunglasses that could filter most of the solar radiation in order to protect military pilots during their exercises. Bausch & Lomb passed the test with flying colors, and the aviator sunglasses were born. Initially, the glasses were made only for the military, but in 1936 the company began to sell aviator sunglasses on the open market under the name Anti-Glare. The following year, in 1937, the Ray-Ban brand name was launched. Ray-Ban's aviator sunglasses quickly gained cult status, and other companies didn't pass on the op-portunity. Eighty years after their launch, hardly any other eyeglass style enjoys the same popularity as aviator glasses.
