Worn by All: Carrera Sunglasses, Since 1956

It’s hard to see a celebrity these days without them wearing one of two type of shades: Rayban or Carrera. We all know and love Raybans, but many of you are a tad unfamiliar with Carrera…

Quick History:
Carrera was established in 1956 and produces high-performance sports eye wear, ski helmets, and goggles for a wide range of extreme sports. The name itself is taken from an extreme sport – the Carrera Panamericana, an auto race that used to cross the entire country of Mexico.

Carrera sunglasses are available in several categories: Hi-Performance, Sport-Fashion, Everyday, Junior, and Adapters— the ones we see David B, Kanye, and Jay-Z wearing would obviously be the sports-fashion or everyday.

Purchase these at Bloomingdales for $120-150.

  1. check out the new Panamerika range as worn by Alicia Keys, I think it will take over from Champion as this summers most popular range.

  2. Stavros Tosounidis

    Men of color have a greater range in style that they can get away with.


  3. I love the carrera sunglasses safari my sister has bought one for my birthday personally I think that the brown color is the best one, they fit good but I think they have not the same material quality than Persol or Rayban, anyway they are cheap and they looks good that’s why I thank my sister.
    anyway My personal future purchase will be a marc jacobs sunglass 016 cause I think is the coolest of the world.
