The effect is instantaneous – you’ll already be able to see yourself driving a convertible in the superbe scenery of the Côte d’Azur, just like a gorgeous movie star.



The Carrera – Jimmy Choo partnership has to be one of the season’s most clever collaborations – the expertise and craftsmanship of the label, cultivated over entire decades, along with the bold attitude of the brand, come together in perfect harmony with the glamorous aesthetic that is signature to the Jimmy Choo label.

Part of the Safilo Group (the global leader in the luxury eyewear sector, distributing sunglasses, optic frames and sports eyewear by some of the most prestigious brands, such as Hugo Boss, Alexander McQueen, Bottega Veneta, Céline, Dior, Gucci, Marc Jacobs, Marc by Marc Jacobs, Saint Laurent), Carrera is amongst the most powerful eyewear labels in the world today.

Dating back from 1956, when Austrian sports eyewear producer, Wilhelm Anger, founded his own brand, drawing his design inspiration from the Carrera Panamerica road races, the Carrera label originally only produced motorcycle goggles and ski masks. It wasn’t long, though, before the innovative design and exceptional quality propelled the label into the fashion industry.
