Carrera is a famous eyewear brand that specialise in sports-inspired sunglasses. The brand dates back to 1956 where the founder, Wilhelm Anger Werker, was inspired by the Panamericana Auto race which went through Mexico. The brand was founded first in Austria but is now based in Italy. In 1996 the Safilo Group became the owners of the brand. Carrera designed the Champion and Safari sunglasses in 2008 which has since become their best-seller and iconic.
The Carrera Champion/AC sunglasses are popular due to its flattering shape. They are available for both men and women and even available as a junior range. The glasses come in a wide range of colours and patterns for you to choose from. The lenses have an aviator style which is tear-dropped shaped. Aviator style glasses are very fashionable and seen in many Hollywood films and popular music videos.
The Carrera Champion eyewear is very comfortable and lightweight. All of the brand’s glasses are handcrafted in Italy using only the finest materials. Carrera sunglasses are guaranteed to be durable, but also light when wearing them, this means they are less likely to irritate the wearer as you cannot feel them on your face. Another reason as to why they are comfortable is because the temple ends have a distinctive curve which allows room for a firm grip around your ears.
