As an avid fan of aviators, I normally edge towards Ray-ban, but ever since I was introduced to Carrera, they’ve been my go-to daily wear. The Italian brand which was founded by Austrian Wilhelm Anger in 1956, became synonym with Carrera Panamericana car racing (highly likely due to Anger’s fascination with race cars), and thus its association with the sports industry. It’s only after 1966 that his company expanded into fashion sunglasses, and that the first Dior sunglasses was even made by Carrera!

As Milan Fashion Week breeze through this week, actor and musician Jared Leto was snapped about town in his Carrera shades, no doubt, as the ambassador is tipped to launch a joint collection by September this year! Talk about a cool collaboration.

Will we see matte rims, to edgy studs and sleek curves? I can’t possibly say, but it might draw some of Jared’s rock ‘n roll influences. Looking forward to view the collection soon!
