SUN LENSES WITH OPTICAL GRADE QUALITY

To create sunglasses with uncompromising quality and clarity of vision, MYKITA and Leica have pioneered sun lenses with optical grade quality. These organic 1.6 index lenses are ground and polished from a cast lens blank in a process normally reserved for prescription glasses. The lens warranty accompanying each product verifies its single-unit production with a unique serial number.

The lens is also distinguished by the specially developed AquaDura® Vision Pro coating, adapted from the field of sport optics and professional photography. This achromatic anti-reflective coating provides invisible protection against rear reflections without the usual colour sheen. Protecting against water, dirt and damage, it also prevents fogging and facilitates effortless removal of fingerprints and stains. All sun lenses offer complete UV protection; polarized lenses filter harmful light components, such as glare and surface reflections.

PRODUCT DESIGN

Designed in collaboration with Leica and handcrafted at the MYKITA HAUS in Berlin, the MYKITA | LEICA collection is defined by its reduced, functional design focused on superior performance. Seamless mechanical solutions and material connections echo the beautiful precision engineering of Leica’s iconic products and create a refined eyewear aesthetic.



Signature elements from the Leica design language will resonate with brand enthusiasts while forming a new, standalone style for glasses. The familiar outline of the Leica camera lens hood appears in the lens shape of the frames. Another recurring style element references the knurled grip on camera lenses – this non-slip surface is used for the inside of the steel temples, as well as on the top bridges. The defining palette features black and grey tones with contrasting pops of well-known Leica colours, including red, silver and white.
