Super Sun

Sàfilo USA and Solstice Sunglass Boutique joined forces this past summer to donate 200 pairs of designer sunglasses (valued at $32,500 wholesale) to Super Saturday, an annual charity event in the Hamptons in Long Island, N.Y. First established in 1997 as a “designer garage sale,” it has since evolved into a large benefit for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund, which is dedicated to advancing research, raising awareness and finding a cure for ovarion cancer.

As part of Super Saturday, Dior Beauty hosted an intimate al fresco dinner soiree at Nello Balan’s Southampton, N.Y. restaurant, Nello Summertimes. The gathering attracted famous socialites including (pictured) Dior Beauty’s brand ambassador Tinsley Mortimer and Fabiola Beracasa, along with their better halves, Jason Beckman and Topper Mortimer. All the guests received Dior sunglasses—the gals received the Dior Josephine 2S and the guys received the Dior Homme 0069S.
