SUNGLASSES, GOLD/BROWN SOLID 014
MYKITA and Maison Margiela are linked by a shared concept of the creative process – the reinterpretation of historical forms, radical experimentation with constructions and an unconventional approach to materials. MYKITA was founded in Berlin in 2003, developing their own tools and processes for in-house production. Their technical expertise and specialised craftsmanship merges with advanced technologies. Maison Margiela is a French fashion house with a collective, poetic and unconventional vision, a conceptual and visionary aesthetic identity.
Raw and unpolished acetate frames, removed at an early stage in the production process, create an aesthetic which reveals the traces of modern technology and creates a contrast between classic form and fragmented exterior. The supremely light and flexible metal frames are all meticulously handcrafted from stainless steel sheets less than 0.5 millimetres thick. The openly displayed hinge is a hallmark of MYKITA design. All MYKITA lenses offer total defence from UVA and UVB rays as well as maximum glare protection.
