We met up with Ralph P. Santos, company founder, yesterday at a gifting suite put on by the talented Secret Room group as a pre-MTV awards event for invited celebrities and media. He brought a large array of styles with him and was running through them fast. “I’d am working with getting our glasses in spas,” Santos told me, “The product is a natural for the upscale day or destination facility.”

If you want to add to your summer shades collection do check out the website http://www.kahoykollection.com/. There are plenty of different styles for everyone. The pair that Santos gave me is the Vieques that is named after a beach in Puerto Rico where bioluminescent organisms produce a glowing effect at night. The temples are 100% eco-friendly bamboo. Bamboo with very lightweight frames and lenses that are 100% UVA/UVB protection with a darker lens suitable for daytime and night time use. They’re available for $79 on the site in glossy black, tortoise and raspberry tea.
