Contego Eyewear

New York eyewear label Contego is giving back with its stylish range of sunglasses.

Designers Aaron Hansen and Mikol Stambaugh created their company with an emphasis on quality craftsmanship and innovative designs. Their sunglasses feature frames in a variety of shapes and colors to suit male and female sun lovers. Each frame is handcrafted from acetate and reinforced with tough stainless steel hardware.

The sunglasses are then fitted with your choice of polarized or CR39 lenses. Both options are abrasion resistant, so they're perfect for a day out at the beach. They've also met the European Union's standards for UV protection, so you needn't worry about your peepers when you're wearing them.

The craftsmanship is impressive, but I'm particularly interested in Contego's social conscience. The label works with Restoring Vision and donates a pair of prescription glasses to a person in need for every pair of sunglasses sold.

Contego recently released its spring/summer 2011 collection, a range which features literary inspired sunglasses including the Hemmingway, the Kipling, and the Hesse. I'm sure the label will hope that like the writers that informed the line, the new sunglasses will become classics.

The new Contego sunglasses are available from selected American and international retailers.
