RETROSUPERFUTURE® HAS ONCE AGAIN TEAMED WITH THE 

ANDY WARHOL FOUNDATION FOR THE VISUAL ARTS FOR A SECOND LINE OF

ECLECTIC ART-INSPIRED SUNGLASSES.

 

WHILE THE FIRST COLLECTION STOOD OUT FOR ITS CLEAR AND ICONIC CONCEPT,

WITH WARHOL’S EVERGREEN PHOTO BOOTH SNAPSHOTS PRINTED ON

SUPER RETROSUPERFUTURE®‘S SIGNATURE ACETATE FRAMES,

THIS SERIES PROPOSES AN ENTIRELY NOVEL APPROACH TO EYEWEAR DESIGN.

 

BRINGING THE GREAT ARTIST’S LEGACY INTO THE 21ST CENTURY, 

RETROSUPERFUTURE®’S DESIGNERS HAVE EXPLORED THE FOUNDATION’S ARCHIVES

WITH THE AIM OF FUSING EYEWEAR AND VISUAL ARTS IN A UNIQUE CONTEMPORARY PRODUCT.

 
 

 
 

“INSPIRED BY WARHOL’S ABILITY TO MAKE THE ORDINARY EXTRAORDINARY
THIS NEW COLLECTION OF SUNGLASSES IS NOTHING LESS
THAN SUPER EXTRAORDINARY,”

 

SAID MICHAEL HERMANN FROM THE ANDY WARHOL FOUNDATION.

 
 

 
 

BABYBABY

 

BY BORROWING ITS LIP-SHAPED LINES FORM ANDY WARHOL’S SLIGHTLY MISCHIEVOUS AND

PERKY DRAWING, BABYBABY SPORTS AN EXQUISITELY CURVY DESIGN.

TWO OVERSIZED PEAR-SHAPED LENSES FORM THE FRONTAL PART OF THE FRAME,

WHILE A SLIGHTLY MORE TRADITIONAL, WELL ROUNDED ARM COMPLETES THE SILHOUETTE.

 
 

 
 

NICOLOU

 

NICOLOU IS A TECHNICALLY ELABORATE YET VISUALLY HARMONIOUS PIECE OF EYEWEAR.

THE ACETATE FRAME REFERENCES THE STYLE AND FLAIR OF THE 50S SILHOUETTE

EVOKED IN WARHOL’S DRAWINGS, WHILE A CONTEMPORARY AND POST-MODERN TWIST IS

ADDED WITH THE TWO PARTICULARLY GRAPHIC ROUND LENS ENCASED WITHIN THE FRAME.

 
 

 
 

VELVETDARLING

 

VELVETDARLING DEMONSTRATES WARHOL’S INCREDIBLE ABILITY IN ANTICIPATING THE

CREATIVE VISIONS OF OUR TIME. THIS CONTEMPORARY AND EVEN SLIGHTLY FUTURISTIC SILHOUETTE,

SPORTS A RECTANGULAR GEOMETRIC LENS AS ITS KEY FEATURE.

THE SLEEK, POLISHED BLACK LENSES ARE MOUNTED ONTO A PARTICULARLY ELABORATE

BROW PIECE THAT GIVES THE SILHOUETTE SOME OF THAT DASHING RETRO-FUTURISTIC TOUCH.

 
 

 
 

ULTRACANDY

 

ULTRACANDY IS THE MOST ICONIC PIECE OF THE COLLECTION AND A PARTICULARLY

ACCURATE TRANSFORMATION OF ANDY WARHOL’S DRAWINGS INTO A THREE-DIMENSIONAL PIECE.

DESIGNED AS AN ODE TO THE LATE ARTIST’S PLAYFUL SPIRIT, AS WELL AS A REFERENCE TO

FACTORY’S OFTEN BIZARRE DRESS-CODES, THE ULTRACANDY’S

MAIN FEATURE ARE ITS HEART SHAPED LENSES.

 
 

 
 

THE UNIQUE PIECES ARE NOW AVAILABLE HERE AT WOK STORE,

BUT IF YOU CAN’T DECIDE WHICH ONE IS YOU FAVORITE,

THIS BEAUTIFUL SET BOX IS CERTAINLY THE ANSWER TO YOUR PRAYER!

 

WE HOPE TO SEE YOU ON THE EVENT, AND

 

HAPPY SHOPPING!
