After making its debut during his SS17 Pitti presentation a few months back, Gosha Rubchinskiy’s eye-grabbing (literally) sunglass collaboration with Italian label RETROSUPERFUTURE has finally hit the shelves. To celebrate, the two brands held an exclusive launch party at SUPER’s spacious SoHo flagship store in New York City.
Not only were invitees able to get up close and personal with the alien-shaped shades via a sprawling display front of house, they were also treated to a high-octane performance courtesy of alt rap queen Tommy Genesis – you know, the self-proclaimed “fetish” rapper who starred in Highsnob‘s 13th print issue.
Seeing as this would be a function met only by the city’s most stylish and strange, we let Tommy go crazy with a disposable camera so that she could document her experience. Check out what she captured above.
Tommy also just dropped a new line of hoodies, and they’re fire.
