Carter Sunglasses Blue w/ Grey Lens
Designed in Bondi Beach and named after a street in the neighbouring suburb, Bronte, the Carter is a combination metal and acetate Panto frame shape. The frame features a cellulose acetate ring secured by a stainless steel rim, and temple arms of cellulose acetate. The frame is hand polished and hand assembled, and features a gloss acetate and metal finish.
Each pair comes with a free carry case, microfiber cloth and maintenance kit.
Hand crafted Australian eyewear. Timelessly designed.
Assembled using European and Japanese materials.
At the heart of Pacifico Optical is our pride and commitment to producing eyewear of the finest quality.
The frames are hand crafted from cellulose acetate sourced from Italian supplier Mazzucchelli.
The frames are held together by hand crafted nickel silver hinges to ensure quality and precision – built to withstand the knocks and bumps of a true adventure.
Sourced from Essilor, the lenses are made from Polyamide – a plastic polymer which is shatterproof and light weight. The lenses are class 3, provide UV6 400 protection and are suitable for driving, meeting international standards including Australian AUS/NZS 1067.1:2016, American ANSI Z80.3-2010 and European EN1836:2005.
The interior of each lens is coated with a multilayer anti-reflective coating to reduce glare, whilst the exterior is hard-coated to prevent scratching.
Our signature horizon links at the tips of the temple arms will connect to our glasses cords as a convenient retainer and to prevent losing the frames from your head, overboard or overland!
The size 48 frame is a small to medium fit.
Total frame width is 133mm.

Pacifico Optical was born between swims at Bondi Beach, and the brand is infused with the area's relaxed coastal lifestyle. Our design mantra is simple. Premium components styled in classic silhouettes. Our frames are hand crafted using Japanese and Italian acetates, lenses from Carl Zeiss Vision and European engineered hinges. We champion elegant shapes, subtle slopes, earthy textures and natural tones.
Sandstone, salt spray and timber grain have influenced the lens and acetate colours, and vintage eyewear, aviation and European classicism have informed the frame forms.
We’re precise and handmade. We’re accessible luxury.
Founded by two mates,
Alain Guglielmino and Nick Guzowski, the idea was conceived in 2011, whilst the two were living abroad. Alain, based in the North of Italy and Nick, Poland decided to catch up during the European Summer, and met each other on the Island of Hvar, Croatia.
“Our product doesn’t take any shortcuts,” says Guzowski. “Since the inspiration for the product design came from iconic European designs, we thought it was fitting that we sourced parts from European suppliers with long histories and experience in manufacturing optics materials.”
