The limited edition Antiquity Ilaria by RETROSUPERFUTURE commemorates their ten year anniversary. The glasses were conceived by a design student in Switzerland.
The RETROSUPERFUTURE Antiquity Ilaria sunglasses are here to mark the label’s tenth anniversary as a brand. According to the official Super by RETROSUPERFUTURE Instagram profile the concept for the limited edition sunglasses was developed at a ECAL, a prestigious design school in Switzerland.
The design for the sunglasses was part of a class project that asked students to interpret the RETROSUPERFUTURE ethos and history.
SUPER 10 YEAR ANNIVERSARY PROJECT WITH ECAL For this special project, SUPER’s team collaborated closely with the students of the MA course in Design for Luxury and Craftsmanship of the prestigious Swiss design school ECAL to create a celebratory pair of sunglasses. Every student worked on the concept and proposed his/her own interpretation of how SUPER’s anniversary glasses should be. #rsf #supersunglasses #retrosuperfuture
