High Costa living
kudos to Matt Costa for swapping out the usual UV-resistant lenses in his Costalots specs for top-of-the-line Italian-made ones by eyewear- (and camera-) snob favorite Carl Zeiss. They're standard-issue in the range's new Diego frame (pictured), which comes in both polarized and nonpolarized versions.
The shape's inspired by protective eyewear (and are made by Titmus Optical, which still manufactures industrial safety glasses and goggles) but the look is fifties-retro.
Costalots Diego sunglasses, $204, available now at costalots.com and Mollusk Surf Shop NYC, 210 Kent Ave., Brooklyn, (718) 218-7456, mollusksurfshopnyc.com
