TITANIUM TREND

Costa expands its titanium collection of sunglasses with activewear sports frames in four new Rx-able styles.

“We’ve noticed that premium metals are a strong trend in the marketplace right now, and we have great interest in our titanium styles, so we looked to expand our titanium offering to those Costa fans who are looking for a sportier style,” says John Sanchez, VP of product development.

New styles Helo (pictured here) and Skimmer are back-chassis 6-base frames. Pilothouse and Turret are full-rim 8-base wrap frames.

Standout design features include built-in spring hinges, bio-resin adjustable temple tips co-injected with Hydrolite rubber for better grip and comfort, and a new air-cushion, full-motion nose pad. The suggested retail price range is $219 to $239.
