Italian eyewear brand RETROSUPERFUTURE has teamed up with the Andy Warhol Foundation For the Visual Arts for an iconic new art inspired range of sunglasses. This collection marks the second time the brand has collaborated with the foundation and to really make it special, they’ve brought to life four different 50s style frames inspired by one of Warhol’s early ink drawings from 1957 originally published in a newspaper feature on women’s eyewear.
“Inspired by Warhol’s ability to make the ordinary extraordinary, this new collection of sunglasses is nothing less than super extraordinary,” says Michael Hermann from the Andy Warhol Foundation. RETROSUPERFUTURE designers dug through the archives to fuse eyewear with visual arts into a contemporary product. The four styles – Babybaby, Nicolou, Velvetdarling, and Ultracandy – embody Warhol’s witty drawing perfectly that are also wearable and stylish.
