I VISIONARI IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE ITS COLLABORATION WITH THE CONTEMPORARY EYEWEAR BRAND RETROSUPERFUTURE.
The collaboration brings together two of the most groundbreaking brands in contemporary Italian eyewear to produce a selection of exclusive sun and optical frames. Known for its original, innovative approach to eyewear design, SUPER’s avant-garde creativity was blended with our knowledge in terms of wearability and aesthetic appeal. The collaboration celebrates Italian craftsmanship and design with a new silhouette produced in four different color variations, each characterised by a sleek form, crisp colors and impeccable materials.
I Visionari is a unique, conceptual eyewear store founded in Florence, at the centre of Italian fashion industry and craftsmanship. With a mission to uncover the most exceptional eyewear design and celebrate innovative ideas, we have oriented our research towards creating a selection of the most ‘visionary’ brands to bring to the local market. In our mission, we aim to emphasise the importance of understanding materials and the way glasses are constructed as well as seeing a beautiful combination of colors or a style conceived in an original way that shows how a designer has really understood the concept of eyewear. Our ethos corresponds to SUPER’s design, characterized by research on new construction models, materials and fabrication techniques that push the boundaries of wearability and visual appeal. Such an approach was celebrated with SUPER for I VISIONARI collaboration that includes the release of four models – two optical and two sun – that blend manufacturing know-how with a visionary aesthetics.
SUPER for I VISIONARI collection is centered around a silhouette designed for the collaboration. The silhouette is characterised by an extremely wearable and lightweight all-metal structure. The shape features an angular, geometric design that blends softly rounded lenses with sleek, straight arms and a prominent, angular nose-bridge. The slightly raised nose bridge is given a unique shape by angular lines on the inner rims that highlight its characteristic geometric form. The rims of the model were crafted out of extremely light, thin metal, for an airy, weightless fit. The arms of the silhouette, together with its temple tips, are made entirely out of metal and feature I Visionari’s logo engraved on the endpieces.
For this release, SUPER for I VISIONARI collection comes in four different colours for both its optical and sun variations. For the optical frames, the brand’s creative team has chosen a sophisticated selection of gold and silver tones, both featuring a shiny metallic finish for a minimal and light visual appeal. The two sun models, on the other hand, feature a combination of eclectic metallic finishes. The first model sports a unique finish with a matte faded effect in pink and ochre, paired with tinted pink lenses. The second model, instead, matches a matte faded finish in turquoise and lime with tinted turquoise lenses, for a pop and colourful visual appeal.
