Johnny Marr, legendary guitarist for The Smiths and serial musical collaborator, has teamed up with Ray Ban Sunglasses this Autumn to design an original pair of Ray Ban Signet shades. The collaboration between musician and brand is a match made in heaven. Throughout the ages musicians and rock stars have favoured Ray Ban Sunglasses both on and off stage and Marr himself, is one such rock star. In fact his manager recalls when he first met Marr as a 17 year old, he was sporting Ray Bans!
As a member of one of the Eighties’ most prolific bands, Marr is often cited as a major influence by some of the biggest names in music today. He has performed with The Cribs, Girls Aloud, Modest Mouse and The Pet Shop Boys and even worked on the score for Christopher Nolan’s 2010 film Inception.
He is the first ever musician chosen by Ray Ban to re-work their shades and opted to re-design the Ray Ban Signet style, for their historical link with rock n roll… Ray Ban Signet Sunglasses have a slight air of the classic Clubmaster about them, however the metal frame surrounds the lenses and also sport a double brow bar, as well as metallic corner flicks! Johnny Marr’s stamped his creative flair on the iconic Signet’s by giving the lenses a moody blue tint, adding unusual metals to the frames and scrawling his signature ‘Johnny’ on the temples.
The launch of his bespoke Ray Ban sunglasses was coupled with the first Ray Ban Raw Sounds Initiative, which saw Marr performing with up and coming young artists, among them Tom Vek and Au Revoir Simone, in New York last week.
