Carrera Is “Out There”

Carrera Is “Out There”

Carrera believes that passion is the fuel that drives us to move outside of our comfort zones. Passion makes us restless, curious and adventurous. It takes us to places we didn’t know existed and gives us experiences we never expected. Passion takes us Out There. In 1956 Wilhelm Anger decided to name his sport goggles company after the longest, fastest, most dangerous race in the world, the Carrera Panamericana. Because that was the future. That was forward thinking, that was… Out There! And it was that spirit and attitude that continue to push Carrera design and innovation to think forward. It is Carrera’s point of view on their product and the passionate people who wear them. In 2015, Carrera launches the OUT THERE with a fully integrated global campaign shot and directed by acclaimed, Los Angeles based photographer, Magdalena Wosinska. Her images perfectly represent the freedom, spontaneity and passion that are embedded in every pair of Carrera eyewear. “Out There” is much more than a tagline. It’s a way of life, a mission and a point of view that runs throughout the entire brand. “Out There” is not a place, it is a state of mind. And for Carrera, the ones who are...

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,...
