By Tim Boswell
Super Sunglasses, the retro shades company launched in 2007, just unveiled their winter collection, consisting of 14 new shades "to face this cold and hopefully sunny winter," according to their blog.
The new collection includes new Metal and Acetate Andrea styles, as well as new colors for the Lucia and People models, and new yellow gold options as well.
"Don’t let your eyes freeze," Super says of the newly released styles.
The new shades retail from $190 to $240 and up. They are available in limited quantities at the company’s online store, RetroSuperFuture.com, or available at selected retail stores.
Below is a rundown and description of the new styles:
THE METAL & ACETATE ANDREA
Our research in material and combinations evolve with every new season, this specific case is a transformation our Andrea model. Offering a solid and classic piece of eyewear, for both an optical use as well as impenetrable sun block. Both models are available in our signature havana and black.
NEW WINTER COLORS
We introduced color in the sunglass market a few years back. Color is a very important component of our brand, especially when they are innovative and elegant as these four new entries: caramel, bottle green, dark brown and light yet deep blue. Paired with a selection of fine Carl Zeiss tinted lenses for a finishing touch. Available only in few selected models: Lucia, Andrea and People.
Introducing our People silhouette in one of our best-selling acetates, the crystal. The transparent acetate reveals the skeletal soul of the frame, underlining the simple and beautiful mechanics of the eyewear. This piece is available with both our rock hard black Carl Zeiss lens as well as our clear Car Zeiss lens, both feature top UV protection.
THE FRANCIS HAVANA
The fine black and gold of our Francis series are definitely a representative set for Super, distinctive, rich and loved by many celebrities. The Havana is also one of our most classic colorations, therefore this combination of style came in a very natural way. Havana front and golden arms for our classical silhouettes: Ciccio, Flat Top and Basic.
