Clariti Eyewear introduces Konishi Sport Flex. Consisting of two ophthalmic and
three sun styles, the new line features cutting-edge technology with a serious
commitment to popular styling in flattering colors. Frames are constructed of the
next generation of flex titanium, a lightweight memory material that can be twisted,
turned, bent and even knotted without damage. Shapes include variations on
rectangles and one double-bridge modified aviator with sleek, clean lines. Two
styles—one sun and one ophthalmic—are semi rimless. Colors consist of
shades of gunmetal, silver, brown and black. Frames are equipped with
rubberized or plastic temple sleeves with metal temple tips. An
additional five ophthalmic frames will be released later this year.
