From a 2012 magazine article - Johnny Marr, the musical mastermind behind British indie bands The Smiths and The Cribs, has always had a soft spot for Ray-Bans. Now, his love affair with the American eyewear brand has come full circle with the Ray-Ban Raw Sounds project, where Marr got to design his own version of Ray-Ban's Signet sunglasses.
Marr made the Signet his own by choosing blue-tinted lenses, a gunmetal frame and adding his signature on the arms. For Marr, making his design debut with Ray-Ban made perfect sense. "When I first started out with The Smiths I wore them (Ray-Bans) all the time", Marr recalled. I recall I purposely ordered one pair for me so I could be one of the few people in Manchester at the time wearing Ray-Bans.
