Hot off the success of its first flagship store in New York, Milan-based contemporary eyewear company Retrosuperfuture has opened its second retail space in the United States, right here in LA. Located in a prime, can't-miss space at 3531 Sunset Boulevard in Silver Lake, the new shop was designed by Mexico City's Savvy Studio and features metal, stone, wood, and nature elements to house its stylish options.
"Retrosuperfuture continues to push the boundaries of eyewear design, and Los Angeles is the logical next step for the brand, both for the city's overall approach to life and its cutting-edge style," founder and CEO Daniel Beckerman explains. "With the new store [we hope to] build a space that the local creative community can relate to."
After exploring the flagship's cool, all-in-one tables and inspiring plant life, shoppers can browse the brand's special edition styles ($200-$250), including the hard-to-find Tuttolente collection, which sells online and in Retrosuperfuture stores across the globe.
Retrosuperfuture is open Monday through Thursday 11am to 7pm, and Sunday from 11am to 6pm. Closed Friday and Saturday.
