Back in 1956, the Carrera Panamericana car race was the most dangerous in the world. It took place in Mexico at a very high altitude, and only those who really loved risk took part in it. The atmosphere of the race and the fearless people who participated in the race-inspired Wilhelm Anger, who has always been a fan of cars, to create sports sunglasses for the daredevils. This is how the Carrera company appeared, which was later destined to become an icon of style and design and a leader in the manufacture of high-quality and ultra-modern glasses.
The Carrera sunglasses and frames collections reflect the brand's unique style, which, through time, maintains the harmony of retro chic and modern audacity. Sunglasses in a variety of shapes, from legendary Aviators to trendy irregular shapes, are crafted from Optyl, which has a memory effect and adapts perfectly to the shape of the face. This revolutionary material was created and patented by Wilhelm Anger in 1964. It is lighter than acetate and is hypoallergenic, elastic, and very comfortable. The numerous achievements of athletes wearing Carrera glasses are indisputable proof of their high quality and technical excellence.
