DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (May 25, 2021) – Costa Sunglasses – the first manufacturer of color-enhancing, all-polarized glass sunglass lenses – grows its lifestyle collection just in time for summer with two new beach-ready lifestyle frames, the Rincondo and the feminine Maya. The new frames are built for those looking to enjoy long days on a sun-drenched beach, boat – or anywhere your adventure takes you.
For nearly 40 years, Costa has built a reputation for being the best sunglasses on the water. The brand’s legacy continues as it welcomes two new styles to its beach lifestyle collection. With its roots in performance eyewear for anglers, Costa brings active details to the frames with its 580 color-enhancing and polarized lens technology, durable Bio-Resin frames, and Hydrolite nose and temple grips to keep your frames locked in place.
The Rincondo, a cousin to the well-loved Rincon and Rinconcito, is the paragon of style and function. With a fresh look and more coverage, the versatile frames offer a rounded lens shape and one-of-a-kind wrap that will make your sun-drenched day trip easy to enjoy. The women’s Maya is inspired by the royal blue waters and iconic landmarks of the Yucatán. The lightweight, feminine frame has a distinctive cat-eye design and combines style with beach-ready features. Its colorways are inspired by our watery world – Shiny Sea Urchin Crystal and Shiny Coral Tortoise.
“Maya and Rincondo give watermen and women who love the Costa lens more options that look great while still offering protection from the sun,” said TJ McMeniman, Vice President of Marketing at Costa. “Our roots are in performance eyewear, and we’ve found ways to incorporate the same active features of our pro frames into our beach lifestyle collection. The category is growing in popularity with anglers who are looking for versatile eyewear that looks as great as it performs. That’s where Rincondo and Maya come in – they balance the best of both worlds in a fresh, new style.”
