Walking down the street wearing a pair of Ralph Lauren glasses will make a real statement.
World-renowned as the maker of elite products, Ralph Lauren has established himself of a provider of high-quality merchandise to the rich and famous.
From top of the line polo shirts to fabulously stunning glasses, you can don exquisite Lauren creations from head to toe.
Ralph Lauren glasses blend time-honored shapes with fresh new concepts, and electrifying colors that capture the suave, yet sporty spirit of Ralph Lauren.
Ralph established Polo during the 1960s as a necktie business. Since then, the company has grown into a multi billion dollar business. It oversees more than three hundred and fifty contract manufacturers and licensees worldwide.
The company operates several hundred retail and outlet stores throughout the United States, and has more than a hundred licensed outlets around the world. The founder, Ralph Lauren, maintains control of nearly 90 percent of the company’s voting power.
Ralph Lauren glasses are manufactured in several different styles and designs, and use a variety of materials, all of which highlight Ralph Lauren’s unique style and taste.
Every pair has the unmistakable “RL” logo. The glasses are produced in a spectrum of colors, including various shades of red, navy blue, yellow, white and the classic, signature glossy black with gray lenses.
Ralph Lauren glasses are commonly seen on celebrities, like Ashton Kutcher.
The Safilo Group, established in 1934 by the Tabacchi family, is the licensed manufacturer of Ralph Lauren glasses. The company is famous for producing and distributing high-quality eyeglass frames, sports goggles and supreme sunglasses.
Their products are sold in various sporting goods stores, and by opticians using their own personal brand, Carrera and Smith, as well as two dozen licensed names, such as Giorgio Armani, Kate Spade, Gucci, Hugo Boss and Liz Claiborne.
Why Ralph Lauren Instead of Cheap Sunglasses?
Protecting your eyes from harmful UV rays is extremely important. Cheap sunglasses generally do the trick for most people. But some experts say a cheap pair of sunglasses will do more harm to your eyes in the long run. The poor quality lenses filter the harmful UV rays, but cause excessive strain on your eyes and impair your vision.
Just as harmful, or maybe more so, is blue light. Unlike UV rays, blue light is visible light. You typically see blue light reflected off of snow or water. This light prevents your eyes from focusing properly. Regular exposure to this type of light can damage your eyes, and increase your chances of going blind.
Skiers and other winter enthusiasts are commonly affected by a temporary blindness, known as snow blindness. This condition generally clears up on its own. However, over an extended period of time, this condition can be permanent.
A good pair of Ralph Lauren sunglasses allows you to see clearly, and will prevent damage to your eyes much better than a cheap pair can.
To keep up with the preppy fashion image of Ralph Lauren, the Safilo Group continually expands its designer Ralph Lauren collection.
The expanded women’s collection features three new plastic frames, and three additional metal frame styles, each sporting cool spring hinges. Some of the metal styles are designed with small, ultra-cool eye-shaped lenses, surrounded by an elegant stainless steel frame. These are enhanced with a unique twisted temple design.
The new designs are available in classic color combinations, ranging from silver and shiny bronze to aubergine and dark blue. The trend-setting, directional plastics come in fabulous double- and triple-color combinations, such as smoke and crystal, havana and blue, blue with crystal and tortoise, and tortoise with green.
Whatever your style or color preference, there is no doubt you will find the perfect pair of Ralph Lauren glasses to suit your taste.
