KAENON: OPTICAL COLLECTION

THE NEXT STEP

Kaenon Polarized, the lifestyle brand known for its performance-oriented sunglasses, introduces its first ophthalmic collection. Designed in California and manufactured in Italy, the new line consists of two four-base and two six-base styles made of lightweight TR-90. All frame designs and hand-painted colors are inspired by the California lifestyle, resulting in an eyewear collection that truly reflects who Kaenon is, the company says.

INSIGHT
Derived from a Polynesian word meaning “free,” Kaenon was founded in 2001 by two brothers, Steve and Darren Rosenberg, whose mission was to create a better sunglass. In the process, they developed SR-91, a proprietary polarized lens and housed it in frames with distinctive shapes and color treatments suitable for an active lifestyle.
