Cocoons Has Expanded To Include More Frame Colors And More Lens Options


The line has grown its fashion-forward models to include more glossy frame finishes in beautiful colors like aqua, black cherry, chocolate, caramel, leopard, onyx and amethyst. Each frame includes a patented system that lets you adjust the ear pieces so the eyewear fits your head exactly.

Cocoons Fitovers are the sunglasses that make sun protection and anti-glare eye comfort so convenient for people who wear eyeglasses. (And for people who need special tints for various vision conditions.)

And the mirror lens options have expanded from blue and green to gold, silver and rose.

The collection includes scratch-resistant lenses in both polarized and non-polarized tints. Each pair of sunglasses includes a neoprene case, large lens cloth and a manufacturer’s limited lifetime warranty.

Costa’s Newest Style Inspired By South Pacific Islanders

Costa’s new Copra sunglasses.

May 2016 — Costa has released a new style inspired by South Pacific islanders and their ability to live sustainably. Called “Copra,” after the word for dried, chopped coconut that is pressed for oil, the sunglass is made of a bio-based resin sourced from the castor plant, which is a sustainable and hardy perennial.

The company says the material is very durable and light. And it holds its shape in both very hot and very cold temperatures — important for anglers and other outdoorsy types.

Copra’s large lens size offers great sun protection, and the frame has integral hinges and soft nose pads for comfort.

Several colors are available, including the matte coconut fade shown here and also three-layer color combinations. And several glare-reducing polarized lens options are available, so you can choose the color and finish that are right for you.

The shapes are classic, including feminine cat-eyes, preppy P3s and big Jackie Os. Each style comes in three or four colors, and you’ll find them in optical stores and department stores nationwide.
