MYKITA and fashion designer Tim Coppens join creative forces to launch their first collaboration frame: a highly wearable piece of eyewear futurism. Sunglass model TEQUILA features a strong design that expresses the shared focus on material development and dynamic mood of both brands.

TEQUILA sees a Nineties dirt bike vibe translated into an uncompromising, modern eyewear design. The expansive front with its straight top line and the reduced form of the elongated keyhole bridge brings about a monolithic look. Lenses cut from a curved surface further contribute to the streamlined silhouette, and create the distinctive vertical reflections. TEQUILITA is a scaled-down version of the same model.


Launching with five different colourways, both unisex models are now available in MYKITA Shops, selected fashion stores and the MYKITA E-Shop.

The energy of the city, street culture, as well as a pulse that feels the present and the future are sources of inspiration.
