MYKITA sunglasses combine several trends for the upcoming season – round, retro and thick hornrims– into its latest collaboration with Brazilian fashion designer Alexandre Herchcovitch. The 2012 spring/summer collection features five new styles in carefully chosen colors for a vintage look with a futuristic flair.
The German designer and Herchovitch joined forces and drew inspiration from Swiss architect Le Corbusier’s round eyeglass frames, all of which are made from stainless steel.
The MYKITA Aritana model, available in Gold/Amber (above), Turqouise and Matte Black/Dark Gray, is a full-frame style that features the brand’s patented hinge technology. The laser cut detailing in the front corners lead into the temples, which slope into a comfortable acetate ear piece. MYKITA Anai sunglasses are similar, but with the lower portion of the front rims cut out.
A similar look is the MYKITA Regina sunglasses, offered in Vanilla (above), Rose, Stone and Black. These are true round frames, with the stainless steel temples placed at the middle of the lens height. The strategic placement of the arm pieces creates a very retro look, while maintaining a modern feel with its thick horn rims. The cut-rim version of this style is the MYKITA Golda.
Most recently added to the collection is MYKITA Avrum sunglasses, a two-tone model that features squared lenses with rounded edges and Wayfarer-style corners. This style is available in Navy/Nude and Red/Nude.
