Ray-Ban is giving some of its most recognizable models a futuristic revamp with its new "Blaze" collection.

The standout is a new lens-over-frame of its classic Wayfarer model, arguably the brand's most iconic creation.

The Wayfarer is most commonly associated with the 1980s, thanks to Tom Cruise in Risky Business, The Blues Brothers and Corey Hart's "Sunglasses At Night" video, among other notable Wayfarer appearances. So the retro-futuristic spin makes sense.

Here, some of the most iconic Ray-Ban Wayfarer moments through history:

There are four new colors coming to the Ray-Ban Blaze: tortoise, black, transparent blue and transparent black. 

The boldest choice is the blue, whose lens are in blue gradient. The effect is downright eye-catching.
