Mykita Studio 1.2 has a matte exterior, and a metallic interior.
BERLIN — Mykita is multitasking. New frames from the German eyewear innovators were on the Milan runways in January via collaborations with Tim Coppens and Damir Doma, while the next styles for the collections from Bernhard Willhelm and Maison Margiela are in the works. And the Berlin-based brand is poised to launch a new concept, the Studio collection, in stores in mid-February.
An unrestricted creative outlet for Mykita’s design team, the Studio concept was previewed in October at Paris eyewear fair Silmo, and launches with three capsule collections. Each consists of two to three models based on a design theme, in three to four colorways. With their thin modernist lines and round lenses, Studio 1.1 and 1.2 take inspiration from Fritz Lang’s “Metropolis,” while 2.1 and 2.2 are oversized with a mirrored coating covering part of the surface of frame and lens. Frames 3.1 and 3.3 are bold dark acetate frames. Mykita has set the pricing for its Studio range at 359 euros and $599.
