Carrera is a luxury sunglasses brand that’s part of the Italian eyewear group Safilo. Theres nothing I like more than Italian craftsmanship, and that’s exactly where my love for Ray Bans began…
Details: Carrera Aqua Matte Sunglasses c/o
Carrera is very similar to Ray Bans, with the vintage shapes and vast range of tinted lenses, but one thing sets these apart, and thats the sporty design. The bright colour combinations really adds to the luxury sporting design with a unique mirror coating, this giving a multi tonal colour variation like the mix of aqua blue and green in these Carrera 50245 Turquoise Matte Aqua sunglasses. These have a beautiful matte finish to the arms with large round lenses, and vintage pantos shape with a modern sporty element to them. These definitely are edgy and really heighten an outfit if your going for a more minimal approach but want something that stands out or adds a contrast of colour, no matter what the season.
These will look just as great come winter and not just summer. Surprisingly these are really light weight with a youthful feel and look, making them great for throwing on at a minutes notice! You might also notice in the pictures the brands name ‘Carrera’ also comes engraved into the matte arms and top left lens. The arms also include a funky engraved pattern for a lux look and the oversized lenses come with 100% UV protection. These really do make for a great affordable designer sunglasses brand, and they’re slightly cheaper than Ray-Bans, and in my opinion just as cool.
What’s your thoughts on these?
