Super By Retro Superfuture We've got the spotlight on the summer's hottest sunnies.

There's something so appealing about the easygoing look of a pair of sunglasses. While summer is the season most associated with it, sunnies have become a fashion staple in a tropical country like ours (boy, was it hot last December!). And the most enticing part is that we have several options—from brands to shapes to style—to fawn over.

Unsurprisingly, Italian eyewear brand Super by Retrosuperfuture didn’t disappoint with a bevy of styles for its Spring/Summer 2013 collection. It’s been only a few months since the brand has launched in the Philippines but we’re already seeing a number of tastemakers sporting Super shades: Anne Curtis, Liz Uy, Tim Yap, and Divine Lee to name a few. More so, the brand's also preferred by international celebrities like David Backham, Rihanna, Beyonce, Kim Kardashian, and Paris Hilton.

Super owes its success to its sophisticated manufacturing techniques with only the finest materials held to the strictest of standards. It’s also interesting to know that it uses Carl Zeiss lens, the same lens used by many Hollywood directors, photographers, and even NASA.

The latest collection has many standout pairs. Each is fresh and has that grab-it-and-go vibe—a welcome change from our usual tortoise and/or black ones. It features different colors, textures, and prints, with materials like crocodile skin, suede, and snakeskin incorporated into the pairs, making us want to grab a pair pronto (not that we needed another reason). The only problem is deciding which one to get.

SUPER is available at LS Pascual, EDSA Shangri-La Plaza, and Power Plant; Aranaz, Greenbelt and Power Plant; Trilogy Glorietta and Alabang Town Center; and Viktor Greenbelt 5 and TriNoma.
