“Casa Nostra” (Our House).
After a few seasons of wide ventured experimenting, Italian based SUPER brings everything back home with a concise, tight offering of new styles.
The collection is highlighted by the sharp, and effortlessly dressy Impero (Empire) series, new classic fall colors (Acqua Santa), as well as direct homages to their Italian heritage (Ex-voto, Napoli).
Without further delay…
Extremely versatile and our favorite of the collection.
The Impero (Italian for Empire) features simple and elegant elements. A sleek, shiny black acetate frame that has its lenses lined with gold. The sunglass is then finished off with dark black Zeiss lenses. Offered in the classic wayfarer shape as well as the more modern Flat Top.
A timeless tortoiseshell with crystal surrounding each lens, and finished with “Bottle Green” Zeiss lenses. Offered in the unisex “People” and “Paloma” shapes, this color is interestingly both avant-garde and classic.
A new textural twist on classic black sunglasses. The Goffrato series borrows its name from a technique used to impress a pattern into a material at extremely high temperatures. The shiny black acetate frame is embossed with a snake-skin pattern, subtle gold adornments on the front, and finished with black Zeiss lenses. It is both durable and lightweight.
The Napoli-Napoli was forged to reincarnate the famous Italian icon: ‘corne napoletane’. The proprietary symbol, used to drive away bad luck, is rendered in its traditional red color. It is complemented by snake leather on the arms, gold trim, and shiny black acetate.
Acqua Santa is a unique new acetate featuring a combination of earthly tones fused together in a rich contemporary texture – part marble-like, part natural havana. So as the frame catches the light it will showcase different hues. The sunglass is finished with premium “Tobacco Brown” Zeiss lenses.
A new slick pearlized gray/black finish offered here in Supers Flat Top shape (shown below), as well as the America shape.
Drew Mama Amante is an old-school throw back. It pairs rich brown havana acetate, interlaced with ivory mother of pearl and gold metal detailing on the temples. It is then finished off with “Tobacco Brown” Zeiss lenses.
The Ex-Voto (out of a vow) features an intricate gold crest inspired by Italian architecture on the arms, adding a rich offering to the simple and classic black acetate frame. The frame is finished with premium “Tobacco Brown” Zeiss lenses.
The dark bordeaux tone is used not only on the shiny acetate, but also on the finishing of the metal arms and bridge. This opulent color is paired with Zeiss black lenses providing superb optics.
