Retro-Vintage Eyewear: The Super Reverb

Amplify your frame game with retro-vintage eyewear. The Super Reverb is our funky-fresh take on an old-school guitar amplifier. Discontinued in 1982, rebooted in 2017 (by yours truly!)…. were bringin’ that throwback beat back to life in the best way we know how, eyewear design!

The Ultimate Throwback Thursday.

Our latest shape was originally created from concept to creation, for a local musician on the hunt for a frame that both flatters the face and honours his passion. Upon its completion, we fell for the look so deeply; it became a no-brainer to add our one of a kind design to the exclusive collection of handmade eyewear, MOSHdesigns.

The Features.

A crisp linear shape, artfully contrasted by soft corners and beveled edges, creates an undeniably throwback look – all inspired by the real thing!

👓: The reboot, eyewear style. Introducing Super Reverb.

Square eyewear happens to be among the sleekest of trends for 2017. Characterized by angular frames that are equally wide and tall, they add contrast to soft facial features and help shorten longer faces – super ideal for round, oblong or oval faces.

After a quick Google image search, and some background research of the original amp – we noticed this musical throwback has distinct beveled edges across the top of its frame and along each of the corners. We knew we needed to emulate these features for our frame, adding a nostalgic vibe to contemporary style. With a little experimentation and a lot of heart – voilà, retro- vintage eyewear handcrafted to perfection!

As always, we encourage you to make the frame entirely your own by selecting the colours, textures & finish that best resonates with your personal style!
