I recently own a pair of Ray-Ban Folding Wayfarer, and I was chatting with another person who recently bought this Wayfarer too and was in love with his new purchase. It’s a no-brainer that these shades are so compact and fit for traveling, coupled with good workmanship which is essential at the hinges.

If you are also shopping for folding shades, here are a few options that I have found.

These two shades require no introduction, being classic Ray-Ban designs. In particular, the Foldable Aviator is newly introduced and apparently, Ray-Ban’s high-end design technology of the eight hinges allow for the foldability of the thin aviator frame.

The Jimmy Choos feature a retro and glamorous look, and comes with a small clutch case with python texture. Prada’s foldable oversized shades cannot be more practical, given that huge shades like these typically takes up more space in our purses.

I am quite smitten by Persol’s version of these compact shades. Tortoise shell for the retro vibe, check. Unique shape (at the nose bridge area), check. Grey-green lenses for the added flair, bonus. And, it folds!

Don’t forget to check out the video known as “Prada Folding in Love“, showcasing their foldable shades as the new super heroes in video games.

Last but not least, here’s a Public Service Announcement for Ray-Ban fans. In line with its 75th anniversary, the brand has set up a “Never Hide: Ray-Ban Legends” showcase at the red ION Capsule, outside ION Orchard. The showcase is available for viewing till tomorrow from 11 am to 9pm. You can also submit photos of you in the Never Hide spirit on Instagram, and tag the picture to @rayban_sg, with the hash tag #neverhide_sg. The top 3 who garner the most ‘likes’ for each week will win a pair of Ray-Ban Aviator.
