Pop Art Meets Fashion: The SUPER x Andy Warhol Eyewear Will Elevate Your Summer Accessories Game
In just about 10 years time, SUPER by Retrosuperfuture, an Italian handmade eyewear brand, had made its way to the pinnacle of the fashion industry with contemporary design and novel style. Today, SUPER is one of the top fashion eyewear choices for everyone around the globe.
In the past few years, SUPER had collaborated with quite a number of global brands to create some of the most riveting fashion collections for the world to see. This includes Supreme, Off-White, Storm, Gosha Rubchinskiy, Complexcon, Office, Pigalle, Barneys, Highsnobiety, and the world-renowned Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. The SUPER x Andy Warhol collaboration started back in 2014, and there have been up to 4 sunglasses series released since. Continuing to capture the artistic sensibility of the acclaimed pop artist, the latest collaboration revealed two charming designs that will definitely raise your accessories game this summer.
One of the designs in this 5th series was inspired by Warhol’s abstract “Silk Screen Printing” artwork called “Flower” that was extremely famous during 1964-1970. The team at SUPER interpreted Warhol’s work onto both the frame and temples of the Drew Mama model, an oversized version of the classic feminine cat-eye silhouette. While it’s essentially the same silhouette, the resulting Andy Warhol Drew Mama Flowers sunglasses features the iconic and colorful flowers printed on the thin and light crystal acetate frame.
The other model is the Andy Warhol Drew Flowers that brought to life Warhol’s iconic artwork from a fashion magazine back in the 1950’s onto the iconic Drew silhouette. The team at SUPER interpreted Warhol’s distinctive drawing style into bright red three-dimensional floral decors both on the frame front and temples, giving the sunglasses a playful and flashy character. Both new models are priced at $351 or about 11,670 THB.
If you’re interested, you can order them through the official website of SUPER by Retrosuperfuture or find them at only selected retailers. Take note that both these shades are limited-edition and will not be produced again once they’re sold out, so grab them while they’re still available!
