Carrera Foxy Lady Vintage Sunglasses - New Old Stock including Case

New old stock - never worn. A few tiny scratches from storage on the lens, but they do not affect vision. All inner temple markings intact.

Made in Austria in 1978.

When Carrera started to move from a sports eyewear brand towards a company that would also cater to a fashion-forward public, Wilhelm Anger decided to create a line specifically for women. Strangely enought, the «Foxy Lady», designed by none other than the infamous Udo Proksch a.k.a. Serge Kirchhofer, features a muscular and perfectly unisex design by today's standards.

The dark blue «Foxy Lady» is fitted with details so avant-garde that they still havent made it into mainstream eyewear to this day: Earpieces padded with yellow foam and a very comfortable white textile nosepad. Unlike later frames by Carrera, the «Foxy Lady« actually has its name engraved into the inner temple.

An epic piece of 1970s fashion, made by Wilhelm Anger's original Carrera-Optyl brand in Austria, before it was bought by Italian corporation Safilo.

Front width from temple to temple: 140mm / 5.5 inches

Temple length: 135mm
