Carrera Porsche Design 5621 90 sunglasses combine rare Porsche Design purple as well as gray - green lenses in the Austrian matte black frame in this classic of 1980s sunglass innovation. The rare purple and dark gray interchangeable lenses give you a lot of flexibility to match color to different outfits and to cope with differing light conditions. The lenses are easily changed by lifting the center hinge, removing the lenses from prongs on the black matte composite frame, inserting the replacement lenses, and lowering the hinge to clamp them in place. Spare lenses are stored in a felt pouch inside the black hard sided Carrera Porsche Design case which is included. The unisex frame looks great on both men and women, measuring approximately 5.625" temple to temple with teardrop shaped optyl lenses measuring approximately 2.75" x 2.25" at the widest points. Carrera 5621 sunglasses were a major innovation in sunglasses design given their use of optyl to lighten the weight and permit more oversized designs than would have been possible in glass. The color has a big impact on value in vintage Porsche Carreras, and purple is one of the most desirable colors in vintage Carrera Porsche Design lens. The inside of one ear stem is marked Carrera Porsche Design with the logo and U.S. patent number on the ear pad, while the other stem is marked with the Carrera serial number, Made in Austria, and 5621 90.
