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...
