We are very happy to announce that Super sunglasses was invited – and accepted with great pleasure – to participate to the 2011 edition of Elton John’s White & Tiara Ball. This event, launched in 1999 by Sir Elton John and David Furnish, is a successful fundraising ball organized by the Elton John Aids Foundation and is set amongst thirty-seven acres of rolling English countryside next to the Windsor castle. Since its birth the event has raised over £40 million that have been entirely devoted to the research and evolution of the fight against Aids.
Along with a guest list composed of our world’s most acclaimed celebrities and professionals, the high-end shindig is furthermore characterized by the participation of a tight selection of upscale brands and fashion houses, whom on their behalf are invited to collaborate with an exclusive creation specifically tailored for the event.
Sir Elton John himself invited RetroSuperFuture to participate. Following his career-long passion for eyewear, Super created a spectacle specifically made to underline Elton’s flavor with astonishing artesan and skillful techniques. Our People silhouette is hand covered in fine Italian white leather and in contrast with a unique Carl Zeiss electric blue faded lens, created especially for this special project. The soft yet sturdy matte silver arms complete the piece, and carry the signature RSF Limited Edition mark on one arm and the Elton John for EJAF description on the other.
These sunglasses are absolute unique pieces exclusively made and sold at the EJAF White & Tiara Ball auction June 2011 edition. All of the proceeds have been entirely donated to the fight against Aids
Super would like to send an extra thank you to Sir Elton John, the entire team at the EJAF, the Super design team and especially Caterina from production for making this happen on such a tight schedule :)
