MYKITA Mm Sun Mmesse026 E20 Matte Brown Dark Green Solid

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 + MM6 MAISON MARGIELA

This special edition in collaboration with design studio takes its cue from the label’s lighter take on avant-garde. The sunshields use the same straight frame construction made of MYLON with different shield shapes to create distinct silhouettes. Simple, clear-cut designs in line with the urban utilitarian tradition and club culture mood of the MM6 AW2020 runway collection.

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.

CRAFT

The CRAFT collection reimagines a historical, ornamental aesthetic in a modern, functional context. Stainless steel frames are meticulously handcrafted to appear like eyewear jewellery: Intricate metal work with multiple bends and curves transform thin steel sheets into fine constructions with three-dimensional depth. Lenses in intense solid colours are held in all-metallic structures evoking the look of Victorian jewellery pieces.

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.

Echo

ECHO mixes eyewear iconography, fusing a feminine cat-eye shape with a sun visor derived from sports eyewear, to propose a new, contemporary elegance. Oversized yet ultra lightweight, the models showcase the unique possibilities of the MYLON material and the technology of 3D manufacturing. The combination of archetypal eyewear silhouettes with a progressive composition of material, construction and surface is a present-day echo of past glamour.
