The New Dark Crystal: Super Sunglasses

So I wouldn’t do a whole posting about something just so I could tie it in with a early 1980s movie Dark Crystal from Jim Henson and Frank Oz. But then again, I might when the lead characters, The Gelfings, look like this...
However, when the new colors for acetate sunglasses from Super feature looks like this, the obscure and potentially cheesy film tie-in is just a side benefit to discussing an exciting option for cold-weather sunnies.

The color: dark brown, the style: People

For winter, these darker crystals from Italian sunglass company Retrosuperfuture are a great way to maintain that see-through look that’s been so hot for the past couple of seasons. But balancing out the translucence is a palette of rich caramel, dark brown, deep blue, and bottle green hues that have a distinctly cold-weather feel to them.

This carmel, when adding a burst of color to this modified keyhole bridge style, has a delightfully fresh feel with a distinctly historic flair.
The color: caramel, the style: Lucia
And the blue and green colors. Would I love them with more color-matched lenses? Yes. Yes I would. But I like that sort of thing, and the lenses super went with are Zeiss, so they're going for a quality thing. And the acetate colors more than adequately handle the aesthetic load.

These frames with a hat in a complimentary color and a supersized tube of Chapstick might be all one needs to be happy this winter.
