New Stuff: Costa Boundless Sunglasses
January 2, 2017
Costa has introduced a new line of rimless sunglasses. The 8 rimless styles
In the Boundless collection includes 4 brand-new styles (West Bay, Seagrove, Gulf Shore and Oyster Bay), as well as 4 existing rimless options (Ballast, Cayan, Galveston and Rockport). Six of the eight rimless sunglasses (excluding Rockport and Cayan) will be available for the first time with a green mirror lens option, as well as gray, copper, and blue mirror, in Costa’s patented color enhancing polarized 580 lenses.
The brand’s 580 lens technology selectively filters out harsh yellow and harmful high-energy ultraviolet blue light. Filtering yellow light enhances reds, blues and greens, and produces better contrast and definition while reducing glare and eye fatigue. Absorbing high-energy blue light cuts haze, producing greater visual clarity and sharpness.
Costa’s 580 lenses are available in all of the rimless styles in impact-resistant, lightweight polycarbonate material. Each rimless style is also available in customized prescription lenses, handcrafted in Costa’s in-house optical lab.
Costa’s new West Bay style is a medium sport aviator, blending a classic shape with performance features such as durable integral-hinge technology and hypoallergenic rubberized nose pads and temple tips. Frame color choices include shiny black and shiny tortoise.
The Seagrove style offers a square, rimless lens, accommodating a variety of face shapes with its large and relaxed fit. Also available in shiny black and tortoise frame choices, rubberized temple tips keep the sunglasses comfortably in place all day.
The Gulf Shore style features an extra-large, rectangular lens shape, built from a rugged bio-based resin nylon material, which ensures the frames hold their shape even in extreme hot and cold conditions. Bio-based resins reduce Costa’s manufacturing process emissions, and cuts the company’s overall carbon footprint significantly.
The Oyster Bay style also offers a rectangular frame shape, in a medium fit, featuring rubberized nose pads and temple tips, sturdy integral hinge technology and bio-based resin frame construction.
Price: $159 – $189
