Carrera sunglasses started out as sports sunglasses, in particular for car racing. That's why you'll see so many modified aviator shapes in the Carrera collection. It's a popular shape for driving glasses because it offers good eye coverage and vision, and it looks great too. Seriously, why have a convertible or other sporty car if you don't have a pair of great shades to make everyone even more envious?
Carrera is big on new technology in eyewear. In fact many of those modified aviator shades have a definite high-tech, stylized look. The arch-flex hinge is another high tech feature that gives Carrera yet another edge in the world of up-to-the-minute function and style. In fact, Carrera's latest ad campaign is titled, appropriately, "Shine On." This is Carrera's way of saying that everyone should let their inner awesomeness shine through, live life to its fullest, and look great doing it.
The brand Carrera was born in 1956, but it sure looks good for its age, huh? With a definite bias toward drivers, Carrera has expanced and grown into a multi-national brand that has a reputation for using leading technology and keeping the style quotient high. Carrera sunglasses tell the world that you're energetic and self-assured - an asset in any situation. They're for fast lane men and women, always living life to the fullest, on their terms, with great style.
The Carrera Master series is a line of classic driving shades for men. They come in several colors of metal frame and lens colors. There's even a transparent lens version for those who want UV protection even on cloudy days when they don't need the actual shading. The Carrera Huron is a sporty unisex style that you can get with polarized lenses for great visibility and glare reduction. Another choice for the selective male is Carrera Panamerika for a sporty, stylish look. Or you may want to go with Carrera Champion Aviator sunglasses if you're the man with an old school style of fashion sense. And the "Cool" series for guys is fashion forward and comes in many frame colors, including a dramatic red.
But the women shouldn't feel left out. The Carrera Hippy series is an extensive line of oversized sunglasses for women with some frames of a more rounded shape, and some more squared off. They come in a variety of frame and lens color combinations too. The Butterfly series is a lovely slightly retro cat-eye shape available in three classic frame / lens combinations. And the Gipsy series is a unisex line of modified aviators with a distinctive vertical divider on the bridge.
Carrera sunglasses are hugely popular in Italy. While there are plenty of American devotees to the brand, there are a lot of people this side of the Atlantic who don't yet know about this brand of Italian sunglasses. You could well be the trendsetter in your group by acquiring a pair or two of Carrera shades, and at the hot prices we have, you'll have plenty of money left over for summer treats like Italian ices after a drive in the sports car.
