AWARD-WINNING ACTOR INSPIRES EYEWEAR COLLECTION By Denis Langlois A new two-piece eyewear collection, inspired by Academy Award-winning actor Jared Leto, will be hitting optical stores in Canada and around the world this month. The Inspired by Jared Leto collection by Carrera, the lifestyle and sports eyewear brand that is part of Safilo Group’s proprietary brand portfolio, features both a unisex sun and optical model which incorporate ‘60s retro aesthetics with a contemporary and innovative edge, according to Safilo. Both the new Carrera 150/S sunglasses and Carrera 144/V optical frames boast a classic rectangular shape that is crafted with a high-density acetate. The 150/S is available in a colour palette that includes dark Havana, blue, black and a bold red. The 144/V comes in light havana, dark havana, a red version with blue temples and a black version with silver details. Here, Leto, who is the star of Carrera’s 2017 campaign, talks about the new collection and his passion for eyewear. Optical Prism | September 2017 17
