Starting from the very name it swiftly borrows, the Metropolis collection is an explicit ode to the great master of cinematography, Fritz Lang, and his much adored retro-futuristic moving picture. Our Visiva series, cannot but pay respect to the original source and therefore selected four precise film stills from the above mentioned 1927 expressionist science-fiction film. The stills have been mounted in a ghostly manner to the inside of Super's signature silhouettes, combined with acetates in different colors and quality Carl Zeiss lenses.
Each pair of sunglasses comes with a soft cloth wipe and soft scratch resistant cloth tie bag.
"SUPER, by RETROSUPERFUTURE, ignited the phenomenon of acetate sunglasses. They are made in multiple color graduations, which has generated a big trend starting in 2007. Super is the 1st brand to produce a complete range of colorful fashion sunglasses combining these characteristics together with a very high quality manufacturing process. SUPER sunglasses are made to the highest possible standards, hand made in Italy by the best manufacturers and with the best materials. For this reason, SUPER also decided to adopt ZEISS lenses, which guarantee an extremely high level of protection to the eyes in all conditions. Since their introduction, artists, celebrities, sports athletes and trend setters have been wearing SUPER sunglasses. Kanye West, Daft Punk, Who Made Who, Justice, Pedro Winter (and his Ed Crew), Simian Mobile Disco, CSS, St. Vincent, The Kills, Elio Fiorucci, Sienna Miller, Jessica Alba and Valentino Rossi are just a few who have been seen sporting a SUPER." - SUPER
