Featuring the Dubai logo
Italian brand Carrera has been making eyewear and sunglasses since 1956. Fast-forward 15 years, and you have the UAE being established in 1971. Head into the future another 48 years, catching up to the present, and you have the first collaboration between Carrera and Dubai, with this special-edition eyewear.
These are Carrera Champion sunglasses, with the official Dubai logo featured on the frames and lenses. It marks the first time that the emirate has collaborated with an eyewear brand, but the two are said to have shared values: ambition, innovation and boldness.
Choose either all-black sunglasses, or the Havana style with dark lenses – the Dubai logo in gold is featured on the temples in each case. The Carrera Champion style, meanwhile, dates back to the 1980s, featuring a drop shape crafted in lightweight and durable Optyl, a patented thermosetting plastic material.
Angelo Trocchia, CEO of Safilo Group, owner of the Carrera brand, said, “Sunglasses are an important part of everyday life in Dubai, and Carrera in particular is a favourite in the region. Its authenticity and elegant designs are particularly appreciated among the local community and welcomed by our customers here.”
The sunglasses are available exclusively from selected Al Jaber Optical stores. Each pair costs AED800.
