Well, I have a new fashion love… and it goes by the name of:
Anyone who knows me know that I have a strong and lengthy obsession with Ray Ban sunglasses. (Wayfarers to be exact.) And while my Ray Ban shades will always be number one in my heart, I’ve stumbled across another brand of sophisticated eye wear – and I can’t take my eyes off of them. The brand, like I mentioned before, is called Super by RetroSuperFuture. The title may be a mouthful, but it completely explains the brand in those three words. They are taking classic and retro designs and bringing them up to date and into the future.
Some of their glasses and sunglasses do have a similar feel to the Ray Ban Wayfarer, however, they have many different interesting models as well. And like the Wayfarer, they are made with the utmost quality and are hand crafted in Italy. Price wise, they are right around the same price as Ray Bans, although some models are more expensive. This price depends on colors or special editions and whether or not some models are wrapped in leather. Either way, I have found myself falling in love with just about every model and frame shape. What RetroSuperFuture does best is combine great and interesting design with high quality materials and bright and attractive colors.
Whether you like to stick with the more traditional look of the basic wayfarer shape, the more modern flat top, the bulkier ciccio, the block-like ‘w‘, the crystal look of the andrea colony or the retro chic lucia frame, the Super sunglasses line is irresistible and hard to miss. And celebrities from all
corners of the entertainment world have been seen sporting these classy shades. People like Gwen Stefanie, Rihanna, David Beckham, Katy Perry, Kid Cudi, JK Rowling and Jessica Alba just to name a few… While the brand’s popularity is still climbing, its clientele is also growing.
I know that OU students and people of Athens often buy their clothing online, and since these shades are only sold in a select few boutiques worldwide, your best bet would be to purchase a pair (or three) online at stores like 80s Purple or EyeGoodies. And don’t forget that the possibilities of color and model are practically endless, as I could not discuss all of them in just this post. Perhaps if the brand continues to gain recognition in the future, they will be easier to hunt down and purchase. Until then, be one of the first and few to rock these retro stunners.
