MYKITA teams up with renowned French house, Maison Martin Margiela to create a unique eye-wear collection
The two concepts for the frames perfectly reflect the synergy of both the fashion houses. Historical forms are reinterpreted, deconstructed and translated into radical designs with an unconventional approach to materials. MYKITA is widely recognized for its intricately handmade eye-wear designs with a distinct aesthetic, and with this collaboration, the collection surely will surely charm the fashionistas.
“When the House teamed up with the Maison to launch a new eye-wear collection, it became clear that we share a common approach. MYKITA and Maison Martin Margiela are kindred creative minds and we are very excited about establishing a radical, new eye-wear collection together that reflects the synergies of both houses.”
“Meeting a new, dynamic partner with so much savoir-faire is always such a breath of fresh air. Maison Martin Margiela’s eyewear collections have grown since their first glasses back in 2009; now seems the right time for Margiela to take the next step by creating an even more distinctive and complete optical range. Edgy, talented and creative, MYKITA’s DNA so perfectly aligns with the Maison’s philosophy.”
