Wayfarers just got way, WAY cooler thanks to a new online feature that lets you completely customize your Ray-Bans. Launched just as the hunt begins for the perfect summer sunnies, Ray-Ban Remix gives you complete control over the color, frame and lenses of the ultra hip eyewear — a serious step up from the Colorize Kit, you guys.
If you’ve ever customized a pair of sneakers online, you’ll be familiar with this digital DIY process. Once you’ve chosen the model you want to customize — there are seven styles available, including the iconic Aviator and the super stylish Justin — you’re ready to add your very own trendy touches.
Color the front of the frames and the temples in with your fave available hue in a matte or glossy finish (or color block them just because you can), and choose from a wide range of lenses to round out your dream design. Hipsters, now’s your time to go crazy with the fluorescent frame/mirror lens combo on a New Wayfarer — just note, the more extreme you go, the pricier your ‘Bans get. Classy combinations stand out just as much: A tortoise shell frame and green rubber tips on the ladylike Erika frame is an especially swoon-worthy mix.
You can even add personalized engraving to the temple tips of your sleek new shades. Ray-Ban allows a generous 10 characters per side — why waste the space with a simple monogram when you can spell out your twitter handle?
If all the Pin Boards in the world can’t seem to get the creative juices flowin’, Ray-Ban’s design team has pimped out each available frame in a slew of inspiring color combinations for you to ooh and ahh at. Or if you’re wavering between that matte or glossy finish, just save your current draft for comparison. Ohh, now that’s a dangerous feature. Remember, you’re never more than a few clicks away from creating the perfect pair of stunna’ shades.
