Blackfin Introduces their Summer, Featherweight Style Titanium Sunglasses

Blackfin Introduces their Summer, Featherweight Style Titanium Sunglasses

The keynote for this summer is lightness according to Blackfin, the all-Italian eyewear brand. The two frames in the ZERO Edge line in beta-titanium display all that brand’s powerful personality, a unique combination of technology, quality and style. Barely a year since it made its debut on the market, the ultra-lightweight Blackfin ZERO Edge collection is completed with two sunglasses, models that are the perfect synthesis of design, research, fashion and personality in which maximum style is complemented by featherweight appeal. Model BF714 JAVA has instant impact. A frame that almost disappears, its huge square lenses are the star of the show, imparting a bold yet understated feminine look. The colour variations recall the Blackfin identity, echoing the dominant opacity of black frames with silver mirrored lenses, or dark brown frames with toning lenses in shades of brown/beige. The only exception is the opaque midnight-blue version with the exciting purple mirrored multi-layer lenses, a truly original colour contrast.   Model BF713 PERRY for men is a smash hit with lovers of classic linear design. The squared-off lenses are set in a frame featuring dark, brushed colours such...

Costa to Premier New 580P Mirror Lenses at ICAST 2014

Costa Sunglasses will debut its newest technology, the 580P mirror lens, at the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST) event in Orlando, July 15 – 18. Until now, Costa’s patented 580 mirror lens was only available in glass. Now, anglers will have the choice of 580 mirror lenses in either Costa’s hard coated glass, or its super lightweight, impact resistant polycarbonate material. Additionally, Costa offers its 580P mirror lens with prescriptions, made of Trivex® plastic. Costa’s 580 lenses block yellow light – the harshest light – from entering the eye at the 580 nanometer on the light spectrum. The result is an unmatched level of polarization and razor sharp color enhancement. The lenses feature a premium anti-reflective coating, and protect against harmful UV rays, allowing eyes to truly relax while on the water. Costa’s 580P mirrors feature the brand’s C-WALL™ technology, a highly specialized oleophobic and hydrophobic coating which repels oil, water and dust. The lens color options include the blue mirror (on a gray base), and the green and silver mirror (both on a copper base). All of Costa’s 580 mirror lenses block light at a slightly...
