Northbrook, Ill. (PRWEB) September 12, 2007 -- In an exciting announcement today, OpticsPlanet reveals that they are now a distributor of the full line of Ray Ban sunglasses, by far the world's top seller in sunglasses, and the brand responsible for the creation of the ever-fashionable, famed Aviator frame. In addition, full lines of other Luxottica brands--the group that owns RayBan--will soon be available on the company's website, OpticsPlanet. The Luxottica group is the world's leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of prescription frames and sunglasses in the premium and luxury segments. Their collection of brands includes such high-end fashion eyewear as Bulgari, Burberry, Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Donna Karan, Persol, Prada, and Versace.
Ray Ban was established in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb under the commission of the United States Air Force, and the original Aviator quickly became popular with military pilots, then soon after became fashionable with the general civilian population. The Aviator and the Wayfarer, also an original Ray-Ban design, are the two most popular and oft-imitated styles of sunglasses in history. Both are truly iconic designs, and clearly help illustrate why RayBan is the number one selling brand of sunglasses in the world today.
While already a proud dealer of high-quality eyewear brands Serengeti, Bolle, Wiley-X, and Spy Optics, OpticsPlanet's move to being an Authorized US Dealer of Ray-Ban and Luxottica marks a major step forward for the company with respect to breaking into the lucrative fashion eyewear business. RayBan alone makes up for an astounding 33% of sunglasses sales the world over. One need only stroll down a city street and take a look at the posh names embellished on young women's eyewear to know how the rest of the Luxottica brands are selling--not too shabby, to say the least. "We're very excited to have RayBan on board with us--they're the biggest name in eyewear, their reputation is flawless, and their designs are timeless. Now that we'll be dealing in other Luxottica group brand names, we expect nothing but tremendous upwards growth," explains OpticsPlanet marketing specialist Yelena Khavkhalyuk.
