WILEY X® SPONSORED DRIVER TONY STEWART BREAKS 84-RACE

WILEY X® SPONSORED DRIVER TONY STEWART BREAKS 84-RACE

When Wiley X-sponsored NASCAR driver and team co-owner Tony Stewart crossed the finish line first in Sunday’s Toyota Save Mart 350, it carried a special significance on several levels. Even though Stewart had strung together many solid performances since returning to the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series during the 2016 season, victory had so far eluded him. In fact, his June 26 return to Victory Lane snapped an 84-race drought dating back to June 2, 2013, when he took the checkered flag at Dover International Speedway. Combined with his earlier solid performances, this win (the 49th in his illustrious career), moved Stewart into striking distance to qualify for the 2016 Sprint Cup Series Championship 10-race “playoffs” later this year — a goal nobody who knows the competitive Stewart doubts he can achieve. The fact that Stewart’s first win of his comeback came on Sonoma, California’s famous 1.99-mile road course — practically in Wiley X’s backyard —was an added benefit for Wiley X Co-Owner and avid NASCAR fan Myles Freeman, Jr. “It was a privilege to be there in person to witness Tony’s exciting victory and welcome him back to Victory Lane,” said Freeman. “All of...

Chloris 3 from Koali!

Chloris 3 from Koali!

Morel releases a refreshing version of Chloris! Inspired by the movement made by the tangle of small fibers found at the end of the Chloris grass, this transparent acetate concept is based on the effects of light and depth. Chloris III features the same custom designed Mazzucchelli acetate on the top portion of the frame’s front. The acetate is made up strands, in opaque colors, which are embedded in a translucent colored base. The bottom half of the front transitions into single colored translucent acetate for a split effect. Chloris III is fitted with thin temples and a flex-hinge. This unique product is driven by color and material both evoking the fluidity and delicacy of this tropical grass. Chloris III is available in a palette of six exclusive colors for each of the four available models ranging in an array of colors: black, crystal, blue, red, turquoise, violet, green, brown and yellow. With Chloris, material and color drive the design.

Innovation, style and glamour sum up the new models from Blackfin, the latest additions to the Spring/Summer 2016 eyewear collection. Models for men and women, whose distinctive designs feature an interplay of contours and thickness, interpreting the Blackfin mood anew: ultra-lightweight frames in titanium and beta-titanium with contrasting colours and top quality lenses. The men’s sunglass San Diego BF766 embodies all this, its large, angular lenses and double bridge have a strong 1970s feel.

Palm Beach BF767 is the archetypical cats-eye shape interpreted in Blackfin style. A bold, hyper-feminine frame laden with retro-chic allure.

The new optical styles from the Swarovski Spring-Summer 2016 Eyewear collection feature attractive designs and sophisticated details. These original offerings include a wide range of shapes, materials and colors, varying from traditional tones to more modern shades. The new line of contemporary and carefully researched accessories enhanced with exclusive workmanship, result in a brilliant, fashionable and distinctive collection.
