Carrera New Champion, A Style Remastered

Carrera New Champion, A Style Remastered

“We own a shape.” How many brands in the world can say that without fear of contradiction? Owning an iconic, original shape is a privilege reserved for only a few and Carrera has earned its place among this elite few. Unique and unmistakable, the Champion sunglasses, which date back to 1979, have since then set new standards in the eyewear industry, boasting countless imitations but nonetheless maintaining their distinctiveness. Today, these iconic sunglasses undergo an extensive “remastering” process and are now presented with new, perfectly balanced proportions and a revisited, snug fit. The front is slightly smaller, its profiles sleeker and its design lighter, thanks to the newly reshaped double bridge and well-balanced proportions. Carrera’s New Champion becomes distinctive but easy-to-wear, in line with today’s natural, normcore style, which meets Millennials’ tastes. Its material, however, remains unchanged. The new glasses are made from Optyl, a Safilo registered trademark; a thermo-adjustable plastic material composed of epoxy resin, with unparalleled physical and chemical features delivering a multitude of advantages such as a lightweight feel, climatic adaptation,...
