YOUNGER AT HEART The Champion collection from L'Amy America also boasts a number of pro- prietary materials that maintain a high degree of comfort. Frames are made with PowerLite injection-molded plas- tic, a super lightweight, and extra du- rable TR90 material and C-Tech Alloy, a corrosion-resistant, featherweight blend of metals with superior tensile strength. The new comfort-driven styles from Skechers by Marcolin deliver trend- right designs such as two-toned rubber tips, colorfully etched details and retro silhouettes.

SLEEK AND FUNCTIONAL Targeted towards the modern, tech- savvy male, the Flexon Pivotal Force series from Marchon Eyewear has been designed with a hinge mechanism that mimics the movement of a lever as it pivots around the axis point and inter- locks with the open endpiece construc- tion. Inspired by fundamental, simple and compound machines in the design process, the integration of the endpiece and temple creates fuid movement and a sleek aesthetic. Three new styles in both full-rimmed and semi-rimless models feature a direct soldered Flexon bridge and new TR-90 temples that al- low for a variety of colors. Oakley introduces three ophthal- mic models for 2016: the Milestone 3.0, Splinter and Reversal. Milestone 3.0 is ultra-thin yet robust in a square shape with sports temples. Splinter in- corporates a square shape and design inspired by Oakley's Silver sunglass equipped with sports temples. Both are constructed with Nan0Matter, an innovative industrial design of thin cross sections and no-slip-grip Unob- tainium earsocks to keep the frames in place. Reversal brings style and person- detailed by the brand's printed "S" logo and equipped with rubber grip tips in two-tone colorations.
