Carrera, the iconic international fashion eyewear brand owned by the Safilo Group, returns to its origins to rediscover a “racing attitude” that is deeply rooted in its DNA. The new collections of sunglasses and optical frames reflect the brand’s stylistic heritage, through strong themes of the past which are revisited with a contemporary flair and embellished with new distinctive detailing, for a unique, timeless style.
A strong, forthright personality for the Carrera “generation”: authentic, dynamic young people who embrace life fully and always challenge their limits.
Four different design philosophies mark the 2013 eyewear models, reflecting the brand’s original identity.
With their timeless teardrop shape and the stylized “C” on the bridge, the iconic CHAMPION sunglasses have been a must-have model in the brand’s collections for the past several years. They are now presented in a brand new version, with a unique interplay of materials: the front in Optyl, an ultra-lightweight hypoallergenic material, is perfectly combined with the soft-to-the-touch, colourful rubber temples. These sunglasses feature the Carrera logo as a bas-relief detail on the temples and as a laser-engraved decoration on the lenses. The model comes in trendy, fashionable colour combinations: black-red, Havana-yellow, grey-blue and purple-green.
Exciting new colours and innovative materials for the sunglasses that have played a starring role in the brand’s latest collections: Carrera 6000. With its unique and unmistakable wavy temples internally covered in rubber, featuring contrasting shades and embellished with a rubber insert near the hinge, this model sets the latest fashion trends. The rectangular-shaped front is in Optyl, an ultra-lightweight hypoallergenic material. The colour palette includes pastel hues of grey-burgundy, green-grey and yellow-petrol blue, accompanied by classic shades of black-red and Havana-black-yellow.
True brand spirit
The CARRERA 6002 model flaunts a softly rounded square shape and a skilfully hand-finished acetate front, reinterpreted with iconic detailing, such as the metal bridge on the front, the unique wavy temples and definite nuances of black, mud/blue, khaki, brown and grey/burgundy, perfectly combined with cutting-edge mirrored lenses.
This new acetate optical frame is also embellished with Carrera’s iconic wavy temples, featuring an authentic, timeless style that is dedicated to fashion enthusiasts who want to stand out from the crowd. A small metal plaque adorned with the innovative silk-screened “Victory C® logo” and covering the flex hinge, stands out on tones of blue, Havana, black, black-blue and burgundy-ivory.
New contemporary trends
In line with the latest fashion trends, the CARRERA 5001 sunglasses have a young, fashionable feel, a large shape and a vintage yet modern personality, highlighted by bright colours, such as orange, aqua green and pink, and enlivened by the all-over “Victory C® Logo” on the inside of the geometric-shaped temples.
This model rediscovers traditions and reinterprets them with an original note, perfectly reflecting a contemporary design. With its trendy colour palette in shades of grey-black, blue-light blue, ivory-brown, Havana-green, pink-red and Havana-black-grey, this new softly rounded bold optical frame is designed for young, dynamic women.
A dynamic personality and an easy-to-wear shape for these high-performance sunglasses that are ideal for outdoor activities. The CARRERA 59 metal sunglasses are ultra-lightweight and extremely comfortable thanks to the rubber details on the temples, the flex hinge ensuring a perfect fit and the polarized lenses providing outstanding, crisp and glare-free vision.
The CA6209 square-shaped acetate/metal optical frame also flaunts an ultra-lightweight feel. The rubber details on the initial part of the temples and on the temple tips come directly from the heart of the Carrera archives and embellish all the new models. A minimalist colour palette ranging from nuances of total black to blue, black/red, and striped grey.
