Eye Spy: Elton John in MYKITA Sunglasses

Beyond his musical talents and greatest hits, Sir Elton John has long been known as someone with crazy unique style. Although he may have left the sparkly jumpsuits in decades past, his designer eyewear has stood the test of time. Eyewear is usually the first thing you notice about a person, and Elton makes sure to make a bold statement. Recently, we caught him hanging out at the Richard Prince “Cowboys” opening reception in Los Angeles’ Gagosian Gallery with photographer Terry Richardson (who is also know for, among the few G-rated aspects of his life, his choice of eyewear), sporting a bold pair of MYKITA Phoebe glasses, seen on the brand’s Facebook page.

For the rest of us, Phoebe is a regular pair of MYKITA glasses, with clear lenses sitting in a round titanium rim. But in hus usual fashion, Elton customized his pair with some bright orange lenses, never one to be invisible in a crowd.

MYKITA Phoebe glasses

Perfectly circular rims are a big trend this season, and Phoebe makes this retro silhouette a modern marvel with its pretty mix of pink and gold, and , of course, its innovative screw-less hinges. Made with interlocking pieces that snap on and off for convenient repair, MYKITA has made using screws a thing of the past. Elton, always at the top of his fashion game, took it one step further with his customization, but for the less-famous folks who can’t exactly wear neon lenses to work, Phoebe is still a great choice. It is also available with pale blue or black rims with silver accents.
