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.
|| Carrera brand was founded by Wilhelm Anger. Brand was called after Carrera Panamericana car racing event.
Current sunglasses that resemble that style is Carrera Topcar 1
|| In 1960 Carrera brand experimented with new styles and materials. Optyl acetate was invented to make glasses more adjustable, hypo-allergenic and lighter.
Today’s style from 1960’s is Carreara 6015 S
Entire Carrera 60… line resembles those times
|| 1970’s were the prime years for Carrera brand. We can see how many everyday designs were introduced geared toward sporty men. Famous Porsche Design collection was launched in 1979.
Today’s styles from 1970’s are
Carrera 5025 S
Carrera 105 S
Carrera 5003 ST S
|| 1980’s had a whole history of style as its the era of many major fashion style changes. In 1986 famous Carrera Boeing collection was launched.
Today’s 1980’s styles are:
Carrera New Safari S
Carrera 5530 S
and Carrera Carrerino 11S
|| 1990’s was a turbulent era not for Bruce Willis who famously divorced Demi Moore, but also for Carrera brand. Carrera brand sponsored two Olympic games in Calgary and Lillehammer. Financially company struggled which eventually ended in a sale out to Safilo group – an Italian company.
Today’s Carrera styles that resemble those times is
Carrera Carrerino 12 S
|| In 2000’s and on Carrera was steadily redesigning the iconic brand to suit the modern trends. On a major scale there were nothing dramatic in new styles. Why change something when it sells well as is? In 2013 Carrera had first collaboration with Jimmy Choo – a fashion designer and added more styles for woman:
Carrera Carrerino 10 S
Carrera 6000JCM S

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.
FYSH glasses are more of a fashionable treat. Unlike other Canadian brands, FYSH designers let their fantasy go wild with bright colors and unconventional shapes and temple decorations.
Izumi glasses fill another niche for people who love glasses and have a lot of glasses. Izumi glasses are inspired by colors of Japan and also by unique style of Japanese people. A bit settle but also very creative glasses styles make biggest part of Izumi glasses.

2016 sunglasses collections are out by all major brands carried at http://www.eyeinform.com and we have spotted a few very interesting trends.
Haute Couturish Sunglasses
If in prior years it was all going backwards into history, 2o16 fashion is about future. We see a lot of crazy shapes, twisted templates, unusual colors. This year the idea of haute couture for everyday wear is really showing for sunglasses. These sunglasses will become mainstream by year end.
2. Mirror Shields
Very futuristic looking mirror shields add masculinity to woman’s glasses. Can be equally worn by men. Many major brands advertise them in their spring clothing campaigns.
3. Intricate Jewelry Embellishments
If jewelry used to be the specialty of Tiffany and Bvlgari sunglasses, in 2016 more brands joined the game. Dolce Gabbana, Roberto Cavalli took the challenge very seriously and ther 2016 sunglasses will just blow your mind!
4. Less Cat Eye
Cat eye sunglasses slowly losing the battle as they didn’t live up to revenue expectations. People loved to try them, but didn’t buy them. Many women found cat eye sunglasses too aggressive and too aging.
5. Retro Still In
Retro round sunglasses are still going strong in 2016 and we can still call it a trend. More men are warming up to the idea as fashion brands were able to make them cool looking as oppose to aging.

Mother’s day is over. We all heard how much moms want the most for Mother’s Day to be left alone of sleep. But fathers are all very different. They want gifts! They want BBQ party and they want beer!
Every wife and girlfriend knows that choosing right Father’s Day gift or just any gift for a beloved men is the hardest thing in the world. Most of men either don’t know what they want or have everything they need. When I ask my husband he will respond with something ridiculous like “I want Ferrari”. Well hubby, how about a pair of nice sunglasses!
Sunglasses is an amazing gift for a men. He can’t have too many because fashion changes. And if you like fashion my dear, be sure that Emporio Armani sunglasses will be right on this year.
Emporio Armani is an Armani line, there is also Giorgio Armani, but Emporio is more casual and more suitable I think for Father’s Day. Emporio Armani sunglasses are very neutral in style, in a way similar to Hugo Boss glasses – a bit casual, bit elegant, not too sporty but will do with shorts.
At Eyeinform website you will find a complete collection of Emporio Armani sunglasses at unbelievably low price for an authentic product. Judge for yourself.
