For Spring/Summer 2014, Mykita introduces several unique styles in subtle variations. Here’s a look at what Mykita has to offer…
A square and a panto – the Jarvis and Giles are brought to new, sportive life through the addition of a double bridge. The non-flush fitting and set-back top bar brings a new dimension that recalls the silhouette of a vintage metal frame. Matted surfaces combined with translucent colours add a touch of luxury to these conventional shapes.
A manifestation of tradition and modernism, Seraphina is the oversized panto brought to a feminine extreme. Invoking the vintage style of semi-rimmed frames through clever colour-blocking and deceptive line weights, the playful graphic quality of the frame is contrasted by the fine gold rim detail. Gold-plated hinges and matte lacquered surfaces correspond with the softly golden-mirrored lenses.
Edmund and Hudson combine the casual, sporty look with efficient light protection. The duo’s design incorporates cues from expansive 1950s frames. Wide temples and a wide bridge avert sunrays from above and the sides, while the snug-fitting browline
and nose similarly keep incoming light to a minimum. Bold frame colours combined with mirrored lenses deliver protection and clear vision.
The Luella model plays with illusions. What at first glance appears to be a bulky acetate frame is in reality fashioned out of the lightweight and flat stainless steel concept. The ‘bulky’ appearance is enhanced by a somber colour scheme and thick temples.
The soft appearance of the glassbead-blasted frames in combination with gold laminated lenses brings about a laid-back elegance.
Sophisticated Sports look
The Mylon glacier sunglasses are the perfect sports companions. The removable side clips are a modern alternative to the leather sections of 1950s’ alpine goggles, that protect from both sun and wind, while the flexible temples retreat comfortably under any helmet – an efficient fusion of functionality and aesthetics.
