Carrera is a luxury sunglasses brand that’s part of the Italian eyewear group Safilo. There’s 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 a vast range of tinted lenses, but one thing sets these apart, and that’s the sporty design. The bright colour combinations really add 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 lightweight with a youthful feel and look, making them great for throwing on at a minutes notice! You might also notice in the pictures the brand’s name ‘Carrera’ also comes engraved with the matte arms and top left lens. The arms also include a funky engraved pattern for a luxe 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.
