Carrera: From Sports Chic to The Rock Look
Carrera’s stylish sunglasses have been a staple fashion piece for anyone who loves the athletic-chic look. Born out of a love for racing in 1956, Austrian eyewear maker Wilhelm Anger was heavily inspired by Mexico’s Carrera Panamericana race.
Considered to be one of the most dangerous car races in the world, the 2000-mile race quickly became an attraction for race enthusiasts across the globe. Part of the charm of Carrera’s sunglasses’ distinctive look comes from Anger’s attention to detail, where he combines the look of extreme motorsports with functionality.
Having collaborated with car companies such as Porsche, Carrerra’s sunglasses are sleek, designed to support anyone aiming to embrace the racer style.
But it’s not just the look that makes the glasses perfect for sportspeople. Using Anger’s Optyl material, each pair of sunglasses is lightweight and guarantees improved fit through permanent elasticity – making each pair unique to the wearer.
From Rs.14,000, anyone looking to purchase Carrera glasses knows it is worth the price. The collaboration with Porsche introduced the new futuristic shield design that attracted an insane amount of media attention back in 1976 and was an immediate success.
Having been worn by the rich and famous, both on and off-screen, the glasses have embodied the quintessential rock star look of the late 20th century.
