Here at The Gentleman Select we have alluded to him before and we shall do so repeatedly so long as he presents our world with exciting ideas. Yes our adopted muse Lapo Elkann and his Italia Independent crew have struck out another fantastic Adidas Orginals collaboration just as exciting as the last.
Following on from the successful Adidas ZX Flux range, Italia Independent Superstar sunglasses will be bursting into the optics world aiming to kick off our summer in vibrant, bold style. A rainbow assortment of frames will surely appeal to everyone’s liking with simple solid colours, to sets which will have intricate little patterns on the legs and temples.
Our pick of the bunch has to be the “1969 Hero” model, a special edition which is manufactured using a heat sensitive material resulting in the frame changing colour from matt black to gold when they are exposed to temperatures above 30 degrees centigrade, such a cool design for your poolside summer holiday and certain to set you apart from the crowd.
For me these frame tick all the boxes, there is many elements which feed through that Italia Independent heritage, a quirky unique appearance in the small detail, yet none of that Adidas essence is lost either.
Italia Independent Superstar will be available in retailers from April this year however be sure to act fast, if they are as popular as the ZX Flux range then they will be dissapearing from the shelves quick.
