Buy Carrera Sunglasses NZ
Carrera has stood the test of time as a quality eyewear brand, paving its way from a workshop experiment in the mid 1950s to a highly sought after luxury brand. Worn proudly by superstars Kanye West and Peter Andre, their men’s sunglasses are every bit as stylish as the women's sunglasses worn by Gwen Stefani, and Lady Gaga in her Bad Romance video. CARERRA has become synonymous with sophistication and fame in today’s fast-paced world.
Since 1996, CARRERA has had headquarters in Italy, the heart of the fashion world, continuing to refine and redevelop its image to meet the needs of discerning and tasteful consumers the world over.
The CARRERA Champion sunglasses and CARRERA Safari sunglasses are the biggest sellers, but the brand will never be limited to just two models. In fact, CARRERA prides itself on helping everybody find their perfect style.
New models include a range of different colours and sizes, from cool electric blue, to hot pink and lime green -- nightshade purple to golden dawn, there has never been a better time to make the leap and bag yourself a pair of CARRERA shades.
CARRERA was started as Wilhelm Anger Werker in 1956 by Austrian Wilhelm Anger. He was fascinated and inspired by the spectacular ‘Carrera Panamericana’ road race, running through Mexico in the early 1950s.
Only a third of the entrants could finish the race, giving it an air of thrill, speed, and the classic roaring excitement only true daredevils understand. The biggest priority was speed, and within a two year window, 8 hours had been wiped off the winning time. The professionals demanded the best.
Anger looked at the needs of the motor racing and extreme sports communities and became incredibly innovative in his approach to eyewear. He patented ‘Optyl,’ a plastic which boasted a 20% weight reduction, a better fit, and a memory effect for stability and permanent flexibility.
Not only that, Optyl boasted a massive reduction in allergic reactions, making it both hugely effective, and suitable for a wider audience than ever before.
The company changed its name to CARRERA International, set up shop in Traun, Austria, and partnered with Ferdinand Alexander to create the CARRERA Porsche Design collection of luxury sunglasses.
On the back of its already impressive image, CARRERA went on to become a world beater, sponsoring the America’s Cup, the 1988 Winter Olympics, and Formula 1 racing in the 1980s, less than 40 years after it was started.
If these aren't quite your style, SmartBuyGlasses is also pleased to offer Serengeti sunglasses at a great price.
