If your heart beats for everything that is vintage, it’s time to go retro in eyewear with Maui Jim’s Kahoma – the latest addition to the sunglass maker’s attractive line of retro-inspired sunglasses.

Named after Kahoma Valley on West Maui in Hawaii, the style gives you ample reasons to head out to outdoor lush locations with the comfort and assurance of protected eyes with a classic evergreen eyewear.

Kahoma is the land of lush, tropical landscapes, and its namesake sunglass is a modern take on a classic wayfarer.

The sunglasses come in a high grade nylon frame, unique colours, and Maui Jim’s patented PolarizedPlus2 technology. With lens treatments and frames that are saltwater safe, the sunglasses are perfect for driving or relaxing on the beach.

The sunglass comes with a mid-sized wrap with wider temples for extra coverage and protection against wind, debris and the sun’s harmful rays. Its modified wayfarer frame complements smaller oval or heart face shapes.

“The retro classic style in fashion never quite loses its charm and keeps returning on the fashion circles. We have observed that vintage style in eyewear is just loved by many people. We try to bring out an interesting mix of products for our consumers and Kahoma is the one for those who love the classic look,” said I Rahumathullah, Managing Director, Maui Jim India.

Kahoma is available in sober Gloss Black frame colour with Neutral Grey lens; the bright and glossy Honey Tortoise frame colour with HCL Bronze lens, and Tortoise with Black Temples frame colour with HCL Bronze lens.

The Neutral Grey is perfect for especially bright, direct sunlight and offers rich colour and contrast along with the highest available light production, unlike ordinary grey lenses that flatten light evenly across the spectrum.

HCL® Bronze, on the other hand, is for everyday variable conditions, from full sun to overcast and would be great for those who love a warm, subtle bronze tint.

As with all Maui Jim products, Kahoma is equipped with Maui HT®, patented PolarizedPlus®2 technology, with High Transmission lens colour that heightens contrast and depth of field so that variable light is perceived with new vibrancy.

Its patented PolarizedPlus colour-infused lens technology wipes out 99.9 per cent of glare, 100 per cent of harmful UV and boosts colour via specially designed lens treatments to make your view clearer, with crisper contrast and amazing brilliance.

Maui Jim’s ST (SuperThin) Glass is durable, scratch resistant and 20 per cent thinner and lighter than standard laminated glass lenses for long-wearing comfort. Maui Jim claims to be the only company to embed three rare earth elements in its lenses to improve definition and depth perception while allowing users to see true, vivid colours.
