Italian sunglasses designer Carrera blew up worldwide last summer with their recognizable vividly colored plastic aviators.  After a trip to Italy last spring I realized Carrera shades were on every fashionable young Italian in every color imaginable, so I was ecstatic to return to home that they were finally being sold in more retail stores outside of Italy.

I thought Carrera only had one basic plastic aviator style with  slight variations in design and lots of variation in color….but it looks like they have a new a style this season that I love!

Carrera Hippy Round Sunglasses $144.48

The Hippy Round Sunglasses have the signature Carrera label on the front of the lens and slim temple colored acetate frames.  I like the striping pattern with the layered shades of rich reddish brown with white that is visible on the profile of the frame.  These are classic, durable, fashionable, and affordable, which is now what I would expect from Carrera sunglasses.

I expect to see this design in lots of fun colors later in the season!  The Carrera Hippy Round Sunglasses are currently available online in Brown at ASOS.
