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.
