Super picks up the concept of printed acetate and takes it even further than it had a few years back with the infamous Alife collaboration (entirely wiped-out and sold-out in less than 24 hours from its release), and the elegantly decorated Liberty London frames (also a great success). This time around, the VISIVA SERIES project has a seasonal life of its own.
Following the season’s theme, Super will release a selection of pieces adorned with a precise selection of prints. Wether they be inside the frame, delicately placed on the front, or sharply decorating certain details, the eyewear will feature unique aesthetic characteristics that immediately bring out Super’s signature touch of style.
With this release, Super is proud to introduce the Poissons, a pre-collection release to anticipate the flavor and aesthetic of ‘VISIVA SERIES’: appealing, with an high visual impact, a completely unique style.
Working with two models introduced in our Autumn/Winter collection – the America and the Paloma – the Poissons offer a clean and determined retouch to both silhouettes, establishing their personality and broadening their range along the way.
As mentioned above, this pre-release pack also underlines a technique we have been experimenting and working with since our early days: the meticulous use of handcrafted prints and illustrations in eyewear.
Both the America and the Paloma have been given a subtle yet strong treatment through the careful application of illustrations by Louis Renard, a specialist in the 1700s in the marine creature illustrations. The application of these particular illustrations, dating mid-1700s, on the inside of the body of the shades elevates the eyewear to an unrivaled level, resulting in a completely unique style.
The America, solid and classic, comes in an intense dark Havana with a smooth tobacco lens. While the equally universal Paloma has been interpreted in an amber crystal acetate, also fitted with a tobacco lens. Two great shades sure to carry you stylishly and seamlessly towards the Summer.
