Carlsbad, CA (March, 2013) – Revamping a classic style to create its newest frame, Dragon has released the Mansfield – a new offering for Spring 2013 that fuses modern simplicity with a timeless silhouette.
Crafted for bold individuals with stylish taste, the Mansfield’s unique and virtually frameless design goes from beach to street with flawless transitions. Largely inspired by major Hollywood sex symbol Jayne Mansfield, this sunglass is an instant favorite for Dragon surf athletes including Mick Fanning, Evan Geiselman and Beau Foster.
“These shades are perfect for cruising around town,” says Evan Geiselman. “They look good, are super stylish and are different from any other sunglass I’ve ever seen.”
Handcrafted in Italy, the Mansfield features a unique 4 base polycarbonate shield lens, stamped metal plaque inlay on the temple and external metal rivets that echo retro automotive detailing.
Available in select retail locations March 1, the Mansfield stands out on shelves worldwide in cool hues including Matte Black, Matte Tortoise, Palm Springs Pool, and Black and White.
