A couple of years ago we first got together with our friends from Super to collaborate on a pair of sunglasses. In the meantime the brand has gotten older and every season we are pleased to see how they mature and deliver one solid collection after the other. We wanted to get together again and follow up on our previous collaborative work.
Today we are pleased to show you the result of this last project. We chose their still new Andrea silhouette and got inspired by the 70s. Original vintage tortoise was used on the new sunglasses, mixed with the front body and half of the arms being covered in premium leather. Our logo was embedded on the arms of the sunglasses. As usual these sunglasses are of course hand made in Italy to the highest quality standards and feature premium Zeiss lenses. Furthermore the sunglasses will come with a custom premium case, staying in line with the silhouette and style. We hope you like them as much as we do.
Due to the limited amount of vintage tortoise that we could get hold off, the sunglasses are limited to only 80 pairs worldwide. They are available from colette Paris, Soto Berlin and other select stores around the globe. For everybody not close to one of these stores, they will also release online today at 5pm CET time in the official Super online store here.
Many detailed images of the Super x Highsnobiety “Andrea” Sunglasses follow after the jump.
