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.

Kanye West

Check out a few of their most popular styles:

“Safari

“Hot”

“Champion”

they’re all so subtly different.

Purchase these at Bloomingdales for $120-150.

Want the Carrera look, but can’t quite afford to spend $150?

Ode to Star Trek: The Incognito Sunglasses


Okay, so this is nothing new– we’ve been seeing men walking around the mean streets of NYC, London, and Paris rocking sunglasses that undoubtedly remind of us LeVar Burton in Star Trek (and then I think about Reading Rainbow, lol). When I initially saw guys in these glasses I thought to myself “this is too much”, but the more I see it the more I understand it and I can surely respect it. There are two or three black guys that wear these shades all the time and they can semi-regularly be seen on street blogs such as The Satorialist. When I was shopping in SoHo last weekend I saw one of the guys, but he seemed like he was in a rush to go get somewhere so I didn’t stop to talk to him. These shades were “brought back”, buy Maison Martin Margiela in his S/S 2008 collection. Margiela is all about being incognito and letting the clothes speak for themselves. About 2 months ago Pharrell Williams was seen wearing the red and black Martin Margiela jacket at a Diesel concert- and they jacket surely spoke for itself.
The star trek glasses fad is slowly catching on with some people who don’t mind looking like Geordi LaForge (the Star Trek character), but it’s still too early to tell if it will disseminate or really end up in many peoples sunglasses collection. But unless Kanye or Pharrell start to wear them on a daily basis, then I doubt it- but who knows.

oh how i HATE men in heels
