Jared Leto in Carrera 113S - Maverick CollectionItalian lifestyle eyewear brand Carrera, is thrilled to announce Academy Award Winning actor, musician, director and entrepreneur Jared Leto, as the new face of the 2016 Carrera Eyewear campaign. In celebration of the brand’s 60th Anniversary, Carrera has chosen one of the world’s most unconventional talents to represent the brand’s new “Maverick” collection.

“I’ve known of Carrera since I was a kid,” says Leto, “and when I came across the Maverick project I was immediately connected to it as it talks about people that are brave, bold, that take risks, the wild horses, the people that are not afraid to fail, the type of people who have inspired my whole life.”

”I am enthusiastic about this collaboration and about Jared’s commitment to this project,” says Massimo Pozzetti, Global General Manager of Carrera.

“Carrera chose him because he perfectly embodies the boldness and spontaneity of the new Maverick collection and with great joy we found out that he was already a follower of the brand.”
Known for immersing himself in his acting roles, Leto personifies a confident, risk-taking Maverick – an ideal casting choice for the campaign. As the new face of the brand, Leto will recruit maverick artists, musicians and unique minds to be part of a creative video he will be leading.CA6661_VBM
