BERNHARD WILLHELM ENTERTAINER AND ENFANT TERRIBLE: FASHION DESIGNER BERNHARD WILLHELM IS A LITTLE BIT OF BOTH. MYKITA AND THE PARIS- AND L.A. BASED DESIGNER COLLABORATE SINCE 2009. FROM SUN VISOR TO COLOURED GRADIENT LENSES OR EIGHTIES-STYLE AVIATOR FRAMES – JUST AS THE FASHION DESIGNS OF BERNHARD WILLHELM, THESE MODELS BLEND INNOVATIVE DESIGNS AND CUES FROM THE WORLD OF CONTEMPORARY CULTURE TO FORM INDEPENDENT CREATIONS.
Lean and mean, the newcomers to the MYKITA & BERNHARD WILLHELM collection are riding a strong Nineties wave and making a splash with Californian colour flashes. Dependable BRENDA is a petite, perfect round with hints of a rebellious and devious side. The stainless steel model features contrasting colour accents on the temples and diamond-shaped loop temple ends.
A bona fide knockout in a sea of eyewear look-alikes, VICE is made of the laser-sintered MYLON and features an angled shield lens. More versatile than its radical appearance suggests, VICE might evoke Miami in the Eighties, but would not be amiss at today’s Art Basel Miami Beach.
