Razer Joins Forces with Retrosuperfuture To Launch Some Ugly Sunglasses
Jakob Aylesbury / 10 months ago
These sunglasses are Razer’s first collaboration on fashion eyewear and hopefully their last, as these should not be worn in public. They are designed in collaboration with Italian brand Retrosuperfuture and blend Razer’s iconic design aesthetics with Retrosuperfuture’s Italian craftmanship. The glasses are inspired by the sportswear pieces with urban streetwear vibes and a hint of secondary school science protective eye visors. They utilise a unique high-tech photochromic lens so they can be used both indoors and outdoors because the former is likely the only place you could wear these with confidence. Being Razer they are also equipped with blue light protection to shield your eyes during long gaming sessions.
What Razer Had to Say
“Razer is no stranger to the fashion scene, having collaborated with renowned fashion and lifestyle brands as well as launched our own lines of apparels,” said Addie Tan, Associate Director of Business Development at Razer. “We’re excited to work with Retrosuperfuture on our first eyewear to outfit the gamers from their gaming sessions to their everyday activities in our quest to outfit every aspect of the gamers’ world.”
“Retrosuperfuture and Razer have come together to create a collection of eyewear that blends the best of both worlds,” said Daniel Beckerman, CEO and Founder of Retrosuperfuture. “The result is a harmonious union of style and function, technical eyewear that is not only stylish but also built to withstand the rigors of intense gaming sessions.”
To mark this model and celebrate the exclusive collaboration, the lenses will be scribed with Razer’s tagline, “For Gamers. By Gamers”. In addition, each eyewear would be uniquely serialized on the right outer temples. The inscriptions will complement Razer’s iconic acid green branding.
Price and Availability
If you for whatever reason would like to own this monstrosity, they will be available from May 5th at an MSRP of $239.00 USD / 249€ MSRP exclusively on Razer.com and in select Retrosuperfuture stores. Alternatively, you could spend $239 on your food for the next few weeks.
