There's a reason you'll find celebrities like Brad Pitt, Jay-Z, Rihanna and Ryan Gosling rocking Carrera sunglasses — these shades are designed for exceptional people. Wilhelm Anger named the company after the Carrera Panamericana, widely considered the most dangerous race on the planet because he wanted his brand to always be on the edge, always pushing the boundaries of fashion and technology. First, that meant crafting ski racing goggles using patented Optyl, a material that was lighter, more durable and more adaptive to the wearer's face than anything the world had ever seen. Then Carrera took that passion for innovation and translated it into the world of designer prescription sunglasses, creating specs that live at the intersection of form and function.
