Super for Elton John Aids Foundation
Finally officially announced.
As well as playing a part of Super’s Liberty prints collaboration, I am very happy to have been involved in this one too! Even happier when I received mine hot off production last year!
‘We are very happy to announce that Super sunglasses was invited – and accepted with great pleasure – to participate to the 2011 edition of Elton John’s White & Tiara Ball.
This event, launched in 1999 by Sir Elton John and David Furnish, is a successful fundraising ball organized by the Elton John Aids Foundation and is set amongst thirty-seven acres of rolling English countryside next to the Windsor castle. Since its birth the event has raised over £40 million that have been entirely devoted to the research and evolution of the fight against Aids.
Sir Elton John himself invited RetroSuperFuture to participate. Following his career-long passion for eyewear, Super created a spectacle specifically made to underline Elton’s flavor with astonishing artesian and skillful techniques. Our People silhouette is hand covered in fine Italian white leather and in contrast with a unique Carl Zeiss electric blue faded lens, created especially for this special project. The soft yet sturdy matte silver arms complete the piece, and carry the signature RSF Limited Edition mark on one arm and the Elton John for EJAF description on the other.
