They say don’t mess with success, but we’re glad MYKITA did! After the fantastic reception the brand received for their No. 1 and Eye and Sun collections, you’d think their designers would have taken a break to enjoy their accomplishments. But no, two years after their Silmo debut, MYKITA was back with their gorgeous Mykita No.2 Collection.
Instead of precision-cut, surgical-grade stainless steel, the MYKITA No.2 Collection features designer eyeglasses in full-bodied cellulose acetate in translucent colors, which were inspired by precious gems and classic colors like tortoiseshell. What didn’t change was the brand’s penchant for technological innovation. We think it’s amazing – to work their patented screw-less hinge into these glasses, MYKITA had to design an entirely new way of bonding the flexible hinge to the acetate frame!
And how can you not love the result?
MYKITA Helmut eyeglasses in tortoiseshell are a classically conservative frame with refined good looks – perfect if you love all things traditional. It features a beautiful glossy plastic frame with a keyhole bridge and rounded lenses, as well as straight arms attached to the front with the special hinge made of interlocking pieces.
And MYKITA Barbara eyeglasses in amethyst are one of the funkier frames in the No.2 Collection, with a Buddy-Holly-yet-feminine feel that makes an immediate impression. Remember, purple is one of the hottest colors this season!
Twelve more prescription styles round out the MYKITA No.2 Collection, which ranges from bold styles in fashionable colors to subdued and sophisticated choices, and we adore them all. It’s not often we can say that!
We’d love to know which frames from this designer collection you love best – are you more of a Helmut or a Barbara?
