Rectangular Sunglasses for Female and Male
Wayfarers were designed in 1952 by American optical designer Raymond Stegeman, who procured dozens of patents for Bausch and Lomb, Ray-Ban's parent company at that time. The design was a radically new shape, "a mid-century classic to rival Eames chairs and Cadillac tail fins." According to design critic Stephen Bayley, the "distinctive trapezoidal frame spoke a non-verbal language that hinted at unstable dangerousness, but one nicely tempered by the sturdy arms which, according to the advertising, gave the frames a 'masculine look.'" Despite this assessment, celebrities throughout the 1950s and 60s, both male and female, such as Marilyn Monroe, Kim Novak, Roy Orbison, Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol all famously sported the sunglasses, some actually donning clone styles of them. John Lennon notably wore Wayfarers in the mid-1960s, prior to his fondness for teashades. John F. Kennedy frequently wore Wayfarer-style sunglasses in public.
