March 2016: For style enthusiasts who love their accessories fashionable yet compact, Maui Jim’s latest offering ‘Stillwater’ promises to be highly irresistible! Leading polarized technology sunglasses maker Maui Jim has introduced its very first sunglass with a fold up frame design.
Stillwater is a beautiful light weight and highly versatile pair of sunglasses with characteristics unlike any other Maui Jim sunglass. It features a complete fold up frame for easy, portable use, with both the temples of the frame and the bridge having hinges that unfold the frame to its full size.
So, you can enjoy the lightweight comfort of Stillwater all through the day protecting your eyes against the glare and harmful UV radiation of the sun. And, when the sun goes, down fold up Stillwater into a small compact case that fits almost anywhere! So, there is nothing ‘still’ about this fold-up frame. Stillwater’s flexibility is contradictory to calm, tranquil waters.
“This is Maui Jim’s first complete fold up frame and we are excited to introduce it in the market. Often people do not like the hassle of carrying large and cumbersome sunglass cases that occupy a lot of space in bags and purses. Easily foldable and fit to be fitted in anywhere, this is an ideal style for such people. The convenience of the fold up frame paired with Maui Jim’s PolarizedPlus2 technology give the wearer a sunglass an experience they have never seen before,” says Mr. I Rahumathullah, Managing Director, Maui Jim India.
The classic, rectangular-round design sunglass style is available in two color options in a matte finish: An Antique Pewter frame with Neutral Grey lenses; and an Antique Gold frame with HCL® Bronze lenses.
The 20% thinner and lighter than standard laminated glass lenses is perfect for long-wearing comfort, whether you’re driving or relying on them every day. Three rare earth elements ensure brilliance everywhere you look.
Maui Jim’s PolarizedPlus2® lenses wipe out 99.9 percent of glare, manage 95 percent of HEV and block 100 percent of harmful UV while boosting color to unmatched levels. Maui Jim’s optically correct, distortion-free lenses feature patented lens treatments or rare earth elements. So instead of dimming the light, color and clarity are enhanced using natural light.
All Maui Jim sunglasses have been recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as an effective UV filter for the eyes and surrounding skin. Proper UV protection is critical, as ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun plays a significant role in the development of skin cancer. About 86 percent of melanomas and 90 percent of non-melanoma skin cancers are associated with exposure to the sun’s UV rays.
