The Carrera brand though noted for its funky and highly trendy style, was founded in 1956 and the company produces a range of sports eyewear including ski helmets, goggles and sunglasses. The Carrera name was inspired by the ‘Carrera Panamerica’ which is a car race that covers the whole of Mexico. The spirit of Carrera is very much of the philosophy that its wearers have a huge passion and enthusiasm for sports and maintain the desire to be the best.
Carrera sunglasses are definitely one of the most fashion-forward of all of the sunglasses brands, especially those within the sports/fashion sector. The sunglasses are retro in style with funky and contemporary edges and are worn by a number of celebrities including Paris Hilton and Kanye West.
Carrera has very recently announced that one of the new frames within its collection, the Panamerika 1 design will be included in 12-time Grammy-winning singer/songwriter and producer Alicia Keys’ new music video. The song from her new album ‘The Element of Freedom’ is called ‘Try Sleeping With A Broken Heart’, which is being released on December 15th. The theme of the video shows Keys as a superhero, sporting the Panamerika 1 Carrera shades.
These particular sunglasses are incredibly retro in style with a distinct 80’s aesthetic and are part of Carrera’s recently relaunched vintage collection and look spectacular in the new video. Another video in which you may recognise the Carrera brand is in Lady Gaga’s new track Bad Romance. We see the pop diva rocking the super stylish Champion Carrera sunglasses which fit perfectly into the abstract and surreal nature of the video which sees Lady Gaga performing within a somewhat controversial and risqué setting.
The Champion Carrera sunglasses are a further highly stylish part of the collection and are again, retro in style and reminiscent of an oversized aviator. The white versions are incredibly cool and also feature the trademark Carrera red line across the top section of the frame. The Carrera brand is always successful in maintaining the core retro style but adding injections of contemporary elements such as bold and fresh colour. The fact that it is the chosen brand to be featured in high profile music videos by iconic artists is testament to how popular and fashion forward Carrera is regarded.
There are some hot new styles to look out for this season which include some classic aviator styles with vibrant lens and frame colours such as the Gypsy in addition to some striking sporty styles with that high trend edge such as the Jocker/T sunglasses in hot pink. Carrera sunglasses definitely make a style statement and should be worn with confidence and attitude! The brand is geared towards the theme of striving to be the best and you will definitely be the leader of the style pack whilst working a pair of these!

In recent years, many designers and artists have channelled their creative skills into designing clothes and accessories. A perfect example of this is the range of Nooka watches, designed by New York artist Matthew Waldman. Waldman aimed to create a new and innovative way to look at time and took great care in discovering new ways of presenting it in an abstract manner. Nooka is a boutique design company that focuses upon slightly edgier watches with a different time viewing layout that the norm – the watches tell the time in hour dots and dashes and incorporate a countdown status bar which increases as the hour passes by – very reflective of the current era, as if you are waiting for the hour to download.
These trendy and quirky looking watches come in a variety of styles ranging from slick and chic to bright and bold. One of the more futuristic styles with quite the sizeable display looks particularly abstract and very art inspired. The faces of all the watches are neither digital nor analogue and have been carefully designed to represent the time in a more visual yet though provoking way. The Nooka Zirc watches have a sophisticated feel with a black face and textured wrist band. In contrast, the Nooka ZUB20 Zot is made entirely from polyurethane and displays the hours as a progression of 12 dots. The watch is designed to combine fashion with function as is water resistant, durable and is available in black, white and canary yellow.
Celebrities are also favouring the Nooka brand – Kanye West sported one in his ‘Beatdowns’ portrait and Lil Wayne, Snoop Dogg and Alicia Keys are also fans – the range has certainly become a strong contender in the most hip and trendy of the watch brands. Waldman aimed to create a more forward thinking way of telling the time and these watches with their quirky aesthetic design are definitely a fun, stylish and practical option plus despite sounding like you need a maths degree to read them, they are actually very simple to use!
