News & Trends: New for 2010 Ray-Ban has just released their Craft Genuine Leather collection, consisting of the brand’s classic, iconic styles with an innovative twist. Each pair of sunglasses from the Ray-Ban Craft collection is luxuriously detailed with hand stitched genuine deer leather accents and premium craftsmanship. The first two models in the exclusive range are the Craft Outdoorsman (above), and Caravan Leather. Made in Italy they feature Ray-Ban’s trademark Crystal lenses for optimum optical clarity.
The Outdoorsman is a classic aviator shape, the Outdoorsman a more contemporary, slimmer profile. Both are available in combinations of shiny gold metal with brown leather and silver flash mirror polarized lenses; shiny silver with black leather and polarized grey lenses; and shiny gold with dark brown leather and brown polarized lenses. Both come with matching deer leather cases. The leather is designed to improve and beautify with age and use, and become heirlooms. The Outdoorsman is now available for $216 and the Caravan for $171 from high-end online optical boutique Eyegoodies.
