SUPER Tiberio SS12 Sunglasses

SUPER continue on their path to eyewear greatness with these Tiberio sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2012.

Season after season, I find myself being increasingly impressed with SUPER. Italians have always known what they’re doing when it comes to eyewear, but it’s nice to see the next generation do also. This Tiberio frame is a unisex number, drawing inspiration from the nautical life (more the super-yacht than deep sea fishing).

Constructed from a molasses coloured havana and dipped into matte black acetate to give them a slightly matte finish, these tortoise style frames exude elegance. The gold pins running through the arms and onto the front of the frames add the final touch of class, along with the RETROSUPERFUTURE branding on the inside of the arm. The real highlight of these sunglasses though (apart from their brilliant shape) has to be the gold anchor, hiding at the end of one of the arms, tucked neatly behind your ear. A reference to nautical tattoos perhaps? Who knows.

The Tiberio is available now, direct from SUPER’s online store.
