Daytona Beach, Fla. – May 13, 2014 – Inspired by the beauty and wonder of the ocean’s coral reefs, Costa adds three more styles to its women’s collection in Starfish, Pluma and Sea Fan. The new styles join Isla, Goby and Blenny, also new in 2014. Much like the reef system, these new styles provide a burst of color on the surface, but contain incredible performance features behind the scenes.
Starfish showcases a large cat-eye frame shape in a variety of colors, including pomegranate fade, retro tortoise, white+black, shiny black+amber and the new topaz fade. Performance features include no-slip nose pads and 5-barrel optical hinges for extra frame sturdiness and durability. Starfish retails for $159.
The vintage-inspired Pluma style is named for the iridescent silvery-purple fish found in the beautiful Atlantic reefs from the Bahamas to Brazil. Frame colors include shiny black+coral, retro tortoise, morena and topaz+white, and include no-slip nose pads and 5-barrel optical hinges. Pluma retails for $159.
Sea Fan offers a stylish butterfly shape in a medium fit, in a variety of frame colors, including black+white, pomegranate fade, white+topaz, wood fade and retro tortoise with black temples. Sea Fan features a spring hinge for a durable yet supremely comfortable fit, and retails for $169.
Starfish, Pluma and Sea Fan are available in Costa’s patented 580P™ 100 percent polarized lens technology, setting these sunglasses apart from the competition. Costa’s 580 lenses block yellow light from entering the eye, creating razor sharp color enhancement and eliminating reflective glare. The lenses are lightweight and impact resistant, perfect for even the toughest explorations. Lens color options include gray, copper and amber. Each of the styles can be customized with Costa Rx sun lenses, through an authorized Costa Rx partner.
“No matter if you’re planning a rugged adventure this summer or just sitting by the pool or beach, all of Costa’s new sunglasses for women are the perfect mix of performance technology and beautiful style,” said Chas MacDonald, president of Costa Sunglasses.
All of the 2014 Costa styles for women are available online at www.costadelmar.com and through authorized Costa retail partners.
As the leading manufacturer of the world’s clearest polarized performance sunglasses, Costa offers superior lens technology and unparalleled fit and durability. Still handcrafted today in Florida, Costa has created the highest quality, best performing sunglasses for outdoor enthusiasts since 1983.
For Costa, conservation is all about sustainable fishing. Many fisheries that should be vibrant and healthy are all but devoid of native fish because they have fallen victim to poor fishing practices, unregulated development, lack of watershed protection or all of the above. Costa works with partners around the world to help increase awareness and influence policy so that both the fish and fishermen of tomorrow will have healthy waters to enjoy. Costa encourages others to help in any way they can.
