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.

TRANSFER

In a triumph of modern handcraft, patterns from the natural world – such as the irregular texture and mineral vein pattern of natural stone – are etched and meticulously lacquered by hand on to the stainless steel frame. Flat lenses add to the avant-garde aesthetic of this high-fashion eyewear.

RAW

Raw and unpolished acetate frames, removed at an early stage in the production process. This deliberate interruption creates an aesthetic all its own, one which reveals the traces of modern technology and creates a contrast between classic form and fragmented exterior. Sophisticated bevelled edges make a distinctive feature of the temples and frame front while making the raw structure wearable.

Essential

Stainless steel frames reduced to the raw material, no additive components. Aesthetic functionality. A thick, transparent powder coats and seals the frames giving the entire construction a convex, all-enveloping body. Inspired by historical shapes of the last century, the monochrome frames and matching lenses lend the models a pure, radical look.

Dual

Two pairs of acetate frames. Born of one form, divided into pairs and deconstructed. Mutual transplantation leaves each couple comprising two complementary designs – but with four independent identities. Manifest as tone-in-tone or with contrasting colour schemes.
