Once upon a time, an Italian manufacturer born to break the pre-established rules of sunglasses design. This is how a beautiful story begins, back in 2007, when several trendsetters came together to create the RetroSuperFuture brand. And so they began to write the story of an unrepeatable collection of glasses that in less than a decade has become the mirror in which to look for other prestigious designers of previous existence.
And, scarcely a year later, they come up with the secret formula of how to achieve the life of an icon that lasts over time and is licensed to exist in any color you can imagine. The RetroSuperFuture Classic is born, the established precedent of everything that we expected to know from this unparalleled manufacturer, thinker and pioneer of the new trends.
Its shape inspired by the legendary wayfarer, has been rethought and has been given an oversize touch to the entire front profile bead, turning it into a classic with an eye on fashion. Likewise, it has been dispossessed of its characteristic inclination, leaving it in a more appropriate pantoscopic angle model for its new dimension.
The vintage detail of its design is provided by its iconic embellisher at the beginning of the rod, or end of the front, depending on how you look at it. And the decision not to add flexo to the rod, under our opinion all a success, gives a much more forceful than his colleagues with rod flexo, softer bearing.
Such was the "all in" of this model, that from the moment of being conceived, the enormous effort was made by RetroSuperFuture to support it, in some cases, up to three different sizes, adapting the design in all the aspects so that it could be perceived as identical in any of its variations, not just thinking about the caliber of the lens.
And, how could it be otherwise, with what lenses did I have to mount this impressive SUPER model? with its "partner" manufacturer of the best lenses in the market. Carl Zeiss brings the touch of high quality to the lenses of this model of sunglasses.
To stand out, among others, the mythical colors with which this model of sunglasses is presented: the black, the classic havana, and the black matte as representative of the extensive color palette with which the RetroSuperFuture model has Classic.
In the fall of 2009 a new surprise awaited us Super, a new color that mixed the power and robustness of the model with metallic gold rods to give it an even more retro touch. The color Francis was born to join the RetroSuperFuture Classic.
