Last Wednesdayย was the first day of my S/S15 press day journey and it kicked off with seeing RetroSuper Future and Kite. I am going to talk about my findings on RetroSuper first. If I talk about them both at once this post may become a rather long essay. I am quite the fan of this Italian brand because they are just cool. That is the only word to describe them and I am really hoping they will actually exhibit at the 100% Optical show because UK needs eyewear like this. At the moment I think they are only sold in Liberty and only their sunglasses range. I could be wrong but from my knowledge that is what I am aware of.

As I was saying, they were mainly showcasing their sunglasses range because it was the S/S2015 collection and I have a few favourites I want to share with you.

RetroSuper Oak Effect Sunglasses

I loved these wooden/oak effect sunglasses (above), they look classical and yet quite modern but the one thing I loved about them was the mounted effect where the lenses are sunk into the acetate to create this framed effect. I do think for S/S 2015 this will be a huge trend within sunglasses and it may even feed through to optical glasses too.

I personally have a thing for white frames, I don’t know why but I just love them. However, I don’t actually have any white optical frames but I do have them in sunglasses styles. When I saw these I was immediately drawn to them. The round shape mixed with the gold metal underneath just screams swinging 60’s to me. The 60’s trend may seem a little over done then redone again but they have added something a little extra which is mixing the different materials together and creating something quite striking with a modern twist to this tired trend.

Finally, yes there were mainly sunglasses but I did get to see a sneak peak as to what optical styles they will have to offer and I have to say I was pretty shocked by the choice in colour. Very muted and understated from RetroSuper but the shapes were all really strong and speaks for themselves.
