Carrera Sunglasses for men & women
The Carrera sunglasses – out of love for racing
A distinctive shape, a stylised C and design elements in black-red-black – the trademarks of Carrera sunglasses are unmistakable. The name of the brand is inspired by motorsport, because the Carrera Panamericana is one of the most notorious races in racing history. The passion and courage that distinguished the participants of the race can also be found in the ever innovative and groundbreaking designs of Carrera glasses. As early as the 1970s and 1980s, in collaboration with Porsche among others, the label created style icons that were worn by the stars even then and are still influential in the fashion world today. Later collaborations, for example with the aircraft manufacturer Boeing, also produced unmistakable models that stood out not only for their design but also for their special wearing comfort. To this day, Carrera has lost none of its style-defining innovative power and designs models that are both timelessly classic and modern.
The distinct design of Carrera sunglasses
Both Carrera sunglasses for men and Carrera sunglasses for women are characterised by recurring design elements. The shape of most Carrera models is inspired by the ski goggles with which the brand first caused a stir in the 1970s. Furthermore, many Carrera sunglasses feature the so-called C plaque, which depicts the label’s C logo in the centre of the temple and was thus a real novelty. The logo also returns on the characteristic C-tips, the joint heads whose entire shape imitates a C and thus brings brand and design together in a sophisticated way. Last but not least, the Carrera flag in black-red-black can be found on the temples of most models. All these elements make Carrera sunglasses unmistakable designer pieces. Then as now, they stand for innovative spirit, unique character and absolute sense of style.
