Building on its successful launch last year, Costa has expanded its Del Mar Collection of acetate sunglasses, adding seven new frame styles in multiple colorways – all inspired by the beauty of the ocean’s natural colors and patterns. With this collection, the company continues to enhance its offerings to beach and water lovers everywhere – pairing premium construction with beauty and style.
John Sanchez, vice president of product development said “We spent hours studying the amazing landscapes in and near our watery world to inspire the creative process. The result pays homage to the beaches and waterways that our Costa tribe live in and frequent. The gorgeous acetate colorways, intricate details in logo and custom wire cores round out our previous Del Mar offer, making for a beautiful, high-quality comprehensive collection that takes Costa’s beach-inspired product line to a new level.”
