New showroom alert: Carrera

When you name your eyewear brand after one of the world’s most dangerous car races, the Carrera Panamericana, it’s clear for all that your love for car racing runs deep. But it’s not just sports that influence Carrera. Fashion plays just as big a part...

Carrera was founded in the mid 1950s in Austria. It was then that its founder Wilhelm Anger decided to rename his already existing company ‘Wilhelm Anger Werker’ into Carrera. With this new name the focus of Carrera became similar to the one in sports: pushing boundaries. And that is exactly what this eyewear brand does up to this day.

Combining a passion for design with a passion for innovation, Carrera ended up giving the world some iconic designs. Together with Porsche Design for instance, Carrera was responsible for the first pair of sunglasses with interchangeable lenses. They were also the first to put their logo in the middle of the front part of the frame. Their aviator styles are unique and are the perfect illustration of what happens when you combine sports with fashion. They do it successfully, proven by all those fashion lovers confidently sporting Carrera frames.

 At NanaWoody&John, we recently added the Carrera showroom to our ever-expanding collection of brands. Have a look and discover the latest collection of glasses and sunglasses by Carrera.



New showroom alert: Kilsgaard

New showroom alert: Kilsgaard

It’s finally time for us to present to you the showroom of Danish brand Kilsgaard Eyewear. And like all other things Danish, Kilsgaard’s aesthetic is clean and minimal. As they say: Kilsgaard is eyewear brought back to the essence...

It can of course be fun to wear glasses and sunglasses that are totally on trend. But the thing with fashion trends is they tend to pass quickly to be replaced by other trends. So, if you want to be sure you will be happy with the frame of your choice for a long time, you better pick a timeless design. Kilsgaard is one of the brands you should then definitely consider.

Part of the Kilsgaard design philosophy is taking a single idea and trying to find the clearest and best possible way to express that idea into a frame. The result is a collection of optical glasses and sunglasses without any unnecessary details. Clean lines and high-quality materials give these frames a timelessness that is beautifully minimalistic. Doing more by doing less.

To view the Kilsgaard collection, have a look here.

OJO Vol. 2: Etnia Barcelona X Ignasi Monreal's capsule collection

OJO Vol. 2: Etnia Barcelona X Ignasi Monreal's capsule collection

They did it before and with success, so now Etnia Barcelona and artist Ignasi Monreal are again joining forces to launch OJO Vol. 2: a capsule collection of limited-edition sunglasses that add something very special to your face: an extra set of eyes...

Ignasi Monreal is called the enfant terrible of the Spanish art world. He joins apparently opposing references like art history and videogames to form his own visual world. Together with the design team of Etnia Barcelona, Monreal basically created a piece of jewelry disguised as a pair of sunglasses. Or the other way around… Either way, when you wear the Ignasi – it comes in lavender, jade green and classic Havana – you can be sure people will notice you. The rectangular frame is made from thick acetate and has an eye-popping detail on the temples: a pair of beautiful dark green eyes. Only 300 pairs will be available of each color so be quick if you want a pair! 

For more Etnia Barcelona you can check out our recently updated showroom.

Rita Ora and Silhouette: a perfect match

Rita Ora and Silhouette: a perfect match

Silhouette found a new brand ambassador in singer Rita Ora. And so, Rita will be rocking the Futura Dot this Summer, just like other musical icons did back in the 70s. But be quick if you also want a pair: this re-edition is limited to 1964 pieces only...

Rita Ora is not only a pop star but also a fashion icon who is not afraid to make a statement with her outfits which makes her the perfect match with Silhouette. The futuristic looking Futura Dot is the perfect accessory with which she can top off her outfits.

 

The Futura Dot was originally made for the catwalk only but turned out to be so popular Silhouette quickly decided to put this model into production. With success. It had several updates over the years, without ever losing its unique futuristic look and feel. To keep the latest Special Edition version of this pair of sunglasses exclusive, there are only 1964 pairs sold worldwide.

New showroom alert: Morel Eyewear

New showroom alert: Morel Eyewear

The newest brand in our showroom is one that’s got quite the history. Family-run Morel has been making eyewear since as early as 1880. The fourth generation of Morel’s is now in charge, successfully introducing this French brand to the rest of the world...

Back in the late nineteenth century, Jules Morel who started out as a farmer in the French Jura, created his first pince-nez (a pair of glasses with a nose clip and no temples). It was the beginning of the successful eyewear story of Morel. Over the years to come, the company would slowly grow into what it is now: an eyewear brand with a strong heritage and a global reach.

For today’s collection, the brand often finds inspiration in its own archives. For instance, their 1880 collection offers re-interpretations of designs from the earliest days of Morel: delicate frames with a unique look and a vintage feel to them.

Their collections of optical glasses and sunglasses always complement your face without being loud. But don’t mistake their subtle look for boring. Unexpected shapes, soft gradient colors, and every now and then the use of prints make all Morel frames unique and interesting.

Founder Jules Morel not only had a love for eyewear, but as a farmer also for his land. This love for both is still a prominent part of the Morel brand. The company has committed itself not only to reduce their use of energy sources, become a zero-paper office and reduce their waste, but also to work on biodiversity by hosting 12 beehives on their property.

New showroom alert: Max Mara

New showroom alert: Max Mara

We are happy to announce a new addition to our ever-expanding collection of showrooms: Max Mara Eyewear. This brand is the epitome of Italian style and luxury and its collection of super feminine glasses and sunglasses is so worth checking out...

Italian fashion house Max Mara is probably most famous for its luxurious cashmere coats that are of such high quality that they get passed down from generation to generation. True investment pieces.

Max Mara optical glasses and sunglasses have the same sense of sophistication as we’ve come the expect from this brand and just like the fashion collection, they are made from the highest quality materials. Both the optical glasses and sunglasses are super feminine and timeless. Especially the sunglasses tend to take the term ‘oversized’ to a new level and will definitely add some glamour to your life.

For the SS2022 collection, Max Mara took inspiration from two extraordinary women. Irish architect and designer Eileen Gray who was a pioneer for the Modern Movement. And secondly, Lee Miller. A model, a fashion photographer who had some of the biggest names of her times in front of her lens and also a war correspondent during WWII. Inspiring women, to say the least, that give life to this collection.

If our little selection makes you hungry for more, check out the entire Max Mara showroom here.
