The iconic brand reissues its light-sensitive Ambermatic lenses in a (very) limited run.
As the name suggests, Ray-Ban’s aviator sunglasses are so well-suited to flight that the original models were specifically made with the needs of American pilots in mind. It’s the deft mix of understated glamour and pragmatic design, however, that’s secured the style’s place as the casual traveler’s go-to accessory. These timeless shades do much more than look good on vacation; instead, each pair is packed with innovations to make your whole trip more comfortable.
This certainly holds true with the brand’s latest line: a 100-piece reissue of its iconic rich yellow AMBERMATIC lenses, available in four variations on the aviator frame. Equipped with the ability to pick up changes in light and temperature, each of these high-performance eye glasses darken from a golden shade to a deep, vintage-y brown to keep out glare and clarify your field of vision. Although this is extraordinary helpful while jetting through sunny skies, don’t discount the relief you’ll also feel from simply exploring somewhere new—after all, nothing takes the fun out of sightseeing quite like chronic squinting.
Perhaps the only bad news here is that you’ve only got five days to shop (the collection is only online between today and June 5) and limited stock to choose from. Want a pair just in time for peak summer sun? Head over to Ray-Ban.com before the selection starts to narrow.
