Contego Eyewear Spring Summer 2012

Contego Sunglasses Spring Summer 2012

Brooklyn based label CONTEGO Eyewear drops their newest collection of handcrafted frames for Spring/Summer 2012.

They introduce five new styles into the lineup, each named after a renowned Nobel Prize winning author: Sinclair Lewis(“The Lewis”), Eugenio Montale(“The Montale”), Patrick White(“The White”), Pearl Buck(“The Pearl”), and Salvatore Quasimodo(“The Quasi”).   Each frame comes in some fresh new colors for the season such as blue, purple, or light woodgrain — and as always each is outfitted with stainless steel optical spring hinges for added durability and topped off with their signature umbrella logo and “drop”.

Checkout the new additions below:
