Did Ray-Ban Really Just Knock-Off Italia Independent's Velvet Sunglass Frames?

When we first came across Italia Independent’s velvet sunglasses back in 2013, we knew they were going to be a thing. Lo and behold, just a few months later and everyone from Jessica Alba to Olivia Palermo is rocking them. But the true sign a brand has “made it?” Another brand starts knocking off their designs. And that’s exactly what’s happening with Italia Independent’s signature velvet frames.

Ray-Ban, beloved for the iconic aviators and wayfarers, just couldn’t let Italia Independent lock down the sunglasses game this summer so they went and made their own velvet pair. Surprise, surprise–they look shockingly similar. See for yourself:
