San Francisco Giants closing pitcher Brian Wilson was a big part of the Giants FanFest this past Friday, February 4, 2012, and a big part of his interviews and presence was his bold pair of shades. The Giants FanFest media day is something that we always look forward to, but imagine our excitement when we saw him wearing his Alexander Daas model power sunglasses! He had just been in the store Wednesday when we styled him into these awesome frames, and also a big and bold pair of purple Mykitas. That’s right, real men wear purple! So check out the interview and try to keep your fear of the beard in check!
SF Optics was recently featured on Malou Review, a television show hosted by Malou Nubla on KTVU Fox Channel 2. Alex Feldman revealed the latest eyewear trends showing new limited edition frames from ALEXANDER DAAS, Robert Marc, and MYKITA, as well as new styles from Oliver Peoples, Paul Smith, and more. Check out the Robert Marc sunglasses with 18k gold mirrored lenses or MYKITA’s limited edition mirrored sunglass set.
Bernhard Willhelm, a clothing fashion designer, has joined forces with MYKITA, the couturiers of ultra-light eyewear, to present three mirrored sunglass models to accompany Willhelm’s ski outfits. And who is wearing the aviator-style sheet-metal frames born out of this collaboration? Below is the FRANZ style in Gold as seen on Sarah Jessica Parker, who plays the role of Carrie Bradshaw, filming the upcoming Sex and the City 2 movie in New York City.

MYKITA’s new engraved metal frames for Autumn/Winter 2009
MYKITA has a technique for engraving metal frames that is unique within the eyewear sector. The intricate finishing process sets new standards in its field and was developed in-house at MYKITA’s Berlin workshop.
The 2009 autumn/winter collection sees MYKITA launching two new extraordinary engraved patterns: TRELLIS and BEAD. Both designs are reminiscent of the weird and wonderful world of M.C. Escher. The artist’s fascinatingly paradox prints became iconic works of 20th century Pop culture and have been reproduced on everything from posters to T-shirts and even record album covers.
MYKITA model Anna in brown trellis
TRELLIS is a mesh-like design comprising repeated shapes that evoke the geometric pattern of an ice crystal. The interlocking lozenge forms provide a harmonious contrast with the sweeping contours of the frame. TRELLIS is available in the retro-style models Anna and Anton.
MYKITA model Bernhard in black bead
BEAD comprises juxtaposed circles that in their resulting arrangement resemble a Penrose tiling. Bernhard and its little brother Barney feature an enticing contrast between the bold, angular frames and the delicate BEAD engraving design.
Both designs are available in PVD-metallic black and brown finishes (PVD – Physical Vapour Deposition).
BEAD and TRELLIS will be available at SF Optics very soon. Don’t miss our MYKITA trunk show where the MYKITA rep will be present and exclusively showcasing the entire brand new 2009 autumn/winter collection on Saturday, October 17th – Sunday, October 18th.
Our first webisode is an interview with a MYKITA expert – Eric, the West Coast Representative for MYKITA eyewear. We discuss what MYKITA, is all about, what’s new with their styles and designs, and do a comparison to iC! Berlin.
The MYKITA collection is made up of handmade sunglasses and eyeglasses imported from Berlin, Germany. They are made of surgical stainless steel and have no sauder points, meaning no weak points. They are extremely lightweight and durable, and feature a screwless hinge design.
Recently, MYKITA has released new styles made of zyl (plastic) and metals with wider temples. This new look gives the MYKITA wearer the opportunity to go for that chunkier more plastic type of look.
