Please name and describe your 3 highlight pieces and items that retailers should definitely order.
The SINNER PROSPECTS PRO SPORT sunglasses are equipped with the lens of the ultimate sport for all weather conditions. This lens has an oleophobic coating which helps water, sweat, mud & oil to run off easily. It resists stains and repels grease from fingerprints. Because of the photochromic lens, the colour will change to dark when the sun is out and back to clear when it’s cloudy. The frame is made from TR90, this makes it flexible and lightweight to ensure a perfect fit!

This SINNER CX collection sunglass is a fashionable item. The round frame and metal temples give it a sophisticated look. The polarized lenses make sure the glare is reduced so you will have a perfect view.

The SINNER DAGMAR sunglasses have the perfect shape/fit for almost everyone. They are comfortable because of the lightweight frame and polarized lenses that will reduce the glare.
