Quick Take: Retrosuperfuture has debuted its spring/summer 2019 optical collection which brings Super’s design edge to a wide contemporary audience.
Specifics: The collection features a selection of signature acetate frames as well as lightweight metal silhouettes that blend experimentation with casual simplicity, classic edginess with essential forms.
Selling Points: The Drew Mama Optical is an icon of Super’s designs, reinterpreted for optical use. This frame takes inspiration from the popular Drew Mama silhouette with a lighter feel, molded and adapted for extended everyday wear. The Numero 54 is a new optical frame characterized by its geometric take on a contemporary cat eye optical design. Prominent temple tips and carefully modulated rims make this an ideal piece for everyday wear that walks the line between essential design and style. The Numero 56 features wide rectangular lenses with upper rims carefully carved for a richer sculpted appeal. The frame’s reinforced nose bridge and thick temple tips make this the perfect piece of everyday eyewear. The Numero 62 is just as bold as it is delicate. This style is characterized by meticulously designed octagonal lenses. The angular design has been softened with light curves on the edges, matched by a raised nose-bridge and thick temples.
