Li Edelkoort is one of the world’s most prominent trend forecasters, so when we spotted her in these Ray-Ban Wayfarer frames, we had to know all about them. “They’re a classic,” she said, “and I’ve been wearing the same pair for years!”
Li’s not the only one who feels that way. Ray-Ban has sold millions of pairs of their now-iconic Wayfarer frames since the style was first introduced in 1952. Though they’ve since introduced a number of variations (in both color and silhouette), Li’s “Original Wayfarer Classics” are based off that very first design. Commonly seen as sunglasses, Li has turned the specs into optical frames that wrap perfectly around her face. The full-rim frame is made from acetate and features the brand’s iconic temple rivets and raised Ray-Ban signature on the sides. Li may spend her days searching out the latest trends, but as we’ve all learned, it’s hard to mess with a classic!
