KAENON ANNOUNCES RELEASE OF SUMMER COLLECTION

Newport Beach eyewear company inspired by the season of getting outside

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. (May 5, 2015) - Summer is upon us, and that means more beach days, lunches on patios and backyard barbeques with friends and family. In short, it’s lifestyle season and Kaenon—an innovator in design and technology —announces the general market release of its Summer Collection with new sunglass styles, Montecito™ and Stinson™, along with capsule collection Gold Coast. “Kaenon is about fun and function…reflecting how we live here on the California coast, and the summertime culture that goes with it,” says Kaenon co-Founder and CEO Steve Rosenberg. “Montecito and Stinson are timely, and timeless representations for both men and women, who like to be outdoors, relaxing or playing with friends, while getting the most out of their eye protection in function and form."


Stinson boasts a retro-inspired frame, designed in California and made in Italy, that emphasizes simplicity and styling. Enjoying a distinctive family resemblance to our strong-selling sunglass Clarke, it’s differentiated by a slight reduction in width and subtle curves in all the right places.  Equally suited for both men and women, Stinson will fit a broad range of face and head shapes and looks good in any situation, be it hanging on the boardwalk, playing on the beach, the boat or the golf course, or anywhere your outdoor fun takes you. As with all Kaenon frames, Stinson features the uncompromising, SR-91® polarized lenses that offer full spectrum UV protection, impact-protection, glare reduction and unmatched clarity — all in an extremely lightweight design. 
Montecito—inspired by the relaxed and elegantly understated Santa Barbara beach-side community of the same name, Montecito exudes the inherent qualities of this California coastal enclave, where natural beauty is abundant and healthy living and quality of life are the norm. Montecito features a slightly-curved, 6-base frame that showcases simplicity and clean lines with unassuming elegance. It’s feather-light, durable and ergonomic fit bring comfort and confidence to the fore.  Montecito also houses Kaenon’s uncompromising polarized SR-91 lenses.



In addition to these new unisex offerings, Kaenon releases its Gold Coast Collection, a four frame capsule of coastal-inspired artistically-finished frame designs showcasing top sellers: Pintail, Clarke, Lewi and Jetty.  Taking inspiration from that west coast golden hour…when the evening ocean glass-off occurs, the dropping sunset glow meets with the dark, course coastal sand, the Gold Coast collection boasts smooth, textured dark brown frame finishing, housing Kaenon’s  SR-91 polarized brown lenses with 12% light transmittance and a subtle gold flash mirror lens treatment.  The Gold Coast Collection—made in Italy, designed in California, inspired by our way of life. 

Kaenon’s Summer Collection is available at authorized Kaenon retailers and www.kaenon.com.  Enjoy the Kaenon lifestyle by following us on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter.

About Us

Kaenon (pronounced: KAY-nun) emerged in 2001 from an intense passion and a clear desire to never compromise. Kaenon was founded by two brothers who were unsatisfied with the sunglasses available on the market. Determined to create something better, they developed the proprietary polarized SR-91® lens — the world’s first non-compromising polarized lens. Wrapped in unique, California-designed frame styles built for comfort and performance, along with distinct colorways and hand-painted treatments unique to Italian craftsmen, Kaenon sunglasses became more than a reality, they raised the standard in performance eyewear.
