Sama Eyewear adds the Active Collection to its Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear line introduced last year. Targeted to fashionistas and athletes on and off the playing field, the new releases are equipped with high-performance lenses and a sportengineered fit that merges curved lenses with less curved frames, resulting in Rxable eyewear that looks and feels sporty while eliminating distortion.
