Ray-Ban & Scuderia Ferrari F1 Launch Racy Sunglasses Collab
F1 Championship contender Charles Leclerc and teammate Carlos Sainz designed luxe Ferrari shades to celebrate their home races.
Scuderia Ferrari is challenging for the championship for the first time since season since Netflix’s Formula 1: Drive to Survive made the world’s fastest motorsport a phenomenon in the U.S. And any American fans who’ve hopped aboard the tifosi-driven bandwagon now know which new shades to sport as they cheer for the rossa corsa cars this summer.
Longtime Scuderia Ferrari sponsor Ray-Ban brought in team drivers Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz to design custom versions of their favorite styles, timing the racy sunglasses’ launches to coincide with Leclerc and Sainz’s home grands prix.
The Monegasque driver, who was leading the Monaco GP before an inexplicably incorrect team pit strategy ultimately dropped him down to fourth, opted for posh flash that fits perfectly with his hometown’s famously decadent vibes. Brown lenses are set in a polished gold frames—the significance of that color needs no explanation—while deep rims are meant to “recall classic racing spoilers.”
The Spanish Sainz went for a sportier look with silver steel rims, black wing brows, dark gray lenses, and nosepads in yellow to recall both the Ferrari shield logo and the predominant color of his country’s fag. A fitting optical tribute to the all-important points he scored as fourth-place finisher in the Spanish GP last weekend.
Both pairs feature Prancing Horse and Ray-Ban logos on the temples and come with a box, case, cleaning cloth, and numbered certificate of authenticity.
Priced from $230, Leclerc and Sainz’s custom Ray-Bans are available to order online now.
