The Local Firm is betting on the 80's nostalgia and geek appeal with their newly-released 'Shadow' sunglasses, the first model in the 'SPECTACLES' collection.

The Local Firm describes the inspiration behind 'Shadow' as a mix of 3D glasses and '80s electro tunes.

The shades come in dark grey, and I want them!

Implications - Retro nostalgia is definitely a powerfully appealing force for modern consumers, and companies that make the most of this aesthetic stand to make the most of this realization. In today's world of web 2.0 whiz kids and constant technological innovation geek culture is more popular than ever, and products like this appeal to the wide swathe of consumers who embrace this modern reality.
