Evolution of Carrera Sunglasses

Carrera is one of the oldest fashion sunglasses brands in the world and many will argue that Carrera is the very first real sunglasses brand. Of course Dior came before, but Dior was always a clothing brand adding sunglasses as accessories. Carrera made sunglasses only, thus it was the first real sunglasses brand. In 1970s Carrera also was best selling sunglasses brand in the world.

Since inception in 1956 sunglasses styles have evolved and just by looking at certain models we can generally pinpoint the era, whether its 60’s, 70’s, 80’s or 2010’s. What’s interesting is that Carrera even today sells some of the best selling models back in the days keeping the trend geared towards the brand itself, not letting the trend push the brand.

Yes Canada Has Its Own Glasses Brands

Canada is regularly voted as one of the best countries in the world to live it because of its financial and social stability. Canada is a great country because it has everything. Canadians are among the best dressed people in the world primarily because Canadians travel across the globe paying attention to moderns trends and style developments.

Canada even has its own glasses brands. Bertelli, KliiK, FYSH and Izumi are known and widely recognized Canadian glasses brands in Canada and well beyond its borders. Ever since EyeInform website is selling KliiK glasses, we shipped many pairs to United States, United Kingdom and even Australia.

KliiK glasses frames are very wearable in terms of style. There is a lot of designer touch in each model with color and shape well combined. But there is also maintaining of a right balance between beautiful and too fashionable. KliiK glasses are excellent for people with small heads because many models come in size 48-50 mm

Bertelli glasses frames are known to be good options for reading glasses. Bertelli glasses frames are fun and durable. They make great reading glasses because many frames are actually short to medium height – a popular height among reading glasses.
