Bananarama hair and Madonna lace gloves does not a happy retro look make.
Tread a little lighter for your next foray into the ’80s with a pair of handmade Italian Super sunglasses, whose bold acetate frames scream retro without being obnoxious.
Check out the slick flat-top Andrea shades with brown and amber swirls, or go darker (and more dramatic) in the black Ciccios pictured here, with a thick gold band accent that quietly screams “Superfreak!” The neutral People frame, a Wayfarer-like shape, is probably the most versatile. (All styles are unisex, so beware the man who bogarts your pair.)
The shades’ high-tech Zeiss lenses mean ultimate sun protection for long days on the patio at Zeitgeist. The future is now.
Available at Acrimony, 333 Hayes Street, between Gough and Franklin Streets (415-861-1025 or shopacrimony.com), $150-$183.
