I LOVE: Mykita

The masters of the luxury eyewear!

You really have to see these in person to fully appreciate their design details.

MYKITA is a young Berlin-based design team catering to the global demand for stylish, top-quality eyeglasses. It was founded in 2003 by Harald Gottschling, Daniel Haffmans, Philipp Haffmans and Moritz Krueger.

 

This is the Limited Edition ‘Franz’ mirrored aviator style sunglasses produced by Mykita in collaboration with Bernhard Willhelm. They were inspired by the 1976 Olympic skiers at Innsbruck and named after the legendary downhill champion Franz Klammer.


They have a remarkable technique making their sunglasses. They are all handmade using simple plug connections instead of complex soldered joints and screws, a process that gives them great flexibility and a snug fit.































This has become my favorite eyewear company!!!
