Carrera Sunglasses

Storming back into prominence in the past few years, Carrera sunglasses combine a unique and instantly recognisable brand style with great performance and never less than 100% UVR protection across the entire range.

Carrera was founded in 1956 in Austria, and originally produced performance eyewear for winter sports market. The Carrera name derives from the Spanish word for "Race" and in homage to the Panamericana Carrera, which was an endurance-driving race that stretched across the length and breadth of Mexico. During the 1970's Carrera teamed up with Porsche to launch a high performance sunglasses range that included several Aviator styles that were highly popular during that decade and continue to influence the collection today. By the end of the 1990's Carrera had been acquired by Italian fashion group, Safilo, who, through their extensive experience in the sunglasses industry, set about rejuvenating and re-launching the brand globally. Within a few years Carrera had launched new collections using vintage designs coupled with both plastic and metal frames in bright colours, which would ultimately prove to be a winning combination.

Today Carrera sunglasses offers a huge range of models including the hugely popular aviator and wayfarer inspired styles as well as retro-futuristic fusion sports wraparound, shield and oversized square, oval and round frames. Enduring styles such as the Champion, Safari, Gipsy and Turbo combined with more recent additions such as the C-City and hugely popular Carrera 6000 make now the perfect time to invest in a new pair of Carrera shades and really make a statement this summer.
