Ray-Ban 75th Year Anniversary: LEGENDS and 7 Images that Broke Barriers

The leading eye-wear brand Ray-Ban is celebrating its 75th anniversary through its Ray-Ban Legends communication campaign.  Branded Lifestyle, Inc., exclusive distributor of Ray-Ban in the Philippines is spearheading initiatives that highlight the commemoration of Ray-Ban’s 75 remarkable years in the industry – from its historically relevant beginnings to its iconic status at the present.

Ray-Ban Legends tells the history and the spirit of 75 years of being yourself and freely expressing your beliefs and personality. Since its creation in 1937 and up to the present day, honoring the values of authenticity and uniqueness constitutes the DNA of Ray-Ban.

Icons and legends of the past, present and future: this is the key message of Ray-Ban Legends. Shot by photographer Mark Seliger in California, the campaign frames seven legendary moments (one per decade), each inspired by a real life and particularly iconoclastic figure. Every character wears a Ray-Ban Icon. Each image evokes a specific story and is epitomized by the chromatic tones that are faithful to the relevant decade (black and white, sepia and, naturally, color).

A group of pilots, the Blue Devils, in the 1930s

A writer’s “relationship” in the heart of America in the 1940s

A singer-songwriter who worked with Elvis Presley in the 1950s

an English socialite in the 1960s

A boy and girl falling in love during a protest in the 1970s

The nightlife of three girls in the 1980s

and a courageous rapper in the 1990s

The result is an extraordinary gallery of powerful images that span an era, while capturing specific moments in time. In keeping with the Never Hide spirit, the seven figures unconsciously broke through barriers; their eyes were open while the world’s were closed.

These are the Hero products for the 75th anniversary, the Ambermatics and the Folding Aviators (picture above the post)
