Chesney played a large role in the design of several of this year's sunglass styles, including the on trend metal aviator appropriately named "KC." Other Kenny Chesney Costa sunglasses in the 2013 collection include the new retro Prop, and a re-introduction of the popular Grand Catalina, Caballito and Hammerhead.
Each of the styles will be available in a variety of bright new frame colors, including the orange-to-red Tequila Sunrise and the brown-to-green Crème de Menthe. They will also feature Chesney's signature on the inside of the temple arms. Like all Costa sunglasses, the Kenny Chesney collection features rugged performance features like no-slip nose pads, nearly indestructible co-injected nylon frame construction and Costa's patented color-enhancing 580 lens technology.
"I took a lot of time to help design the look and feel of this year's line of sunglasses," said Chesney. "For something to have my name on it, I take a lot of pride making sure the end product lives up to my high expectations in terms of quality and performance. These Costa sunglasses have my personality showing through - they work hard, but they definitely know how to have a good time, too."
Five dollars from the sale of each pair of Kenny Chesney Costa sunglasses will be donated to the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA), a grassroots advocacy organization dedicated to ocean and coastal conservation programs. Since 2010, more than $80,000 has already been donated to CCA as a result of the Kenny Chesney and Costa partnership. The CCA has helped fund habitat restoration initiatives throughout the Gulf of Mexico as well as reef creation and oyster restoration projects around the Southeast.
Each of the new Kenny Chesney Costa sunglass styles will retail from $129 to $199 and will be available for purchase while supplies last at participating authorized Costa retail partners and online at www.costadelmar.com.
