Mykita first presented the LESSRIM collection in Silmo optical Fair in France last September 2017. It’s the most discreet and minimalistic collection to date. MYKITA LESSRIM is based on a barely visible construction creating ultra-light eyewear that blends seamlessly into the facial features.
MYKITA reinterprets the traditional rimless concept with the help of latest advancements in polishing technology. Ultra-fine rims hold the lenses without the need for perforation giving them a floating appearance. The 0.5 millimetre wide stainless steel rim lies flush in the groove of the lens perimeter leaving a hint of a silver outline.
Pure shapes meet with subtle metallic colourways and understated functional detailing for a reduced, virtually translucent aesthetic. The tapered stainless steel temples feature an elon- gated acetate temple end to optimise the weight balance of the glasses. A functional coating on the nose pads keeps the frame in place. This reduced material concept amounts to outstanding lightness and comfort.
Launching as an eight-piece collection, MYKITA LESSRIM features seven optical models and one sunglass frame.
The range of archetypal shapes includes the classic panto EITO, rectangular models NOBU and KAITO, and the round KAYO. With its high mono bridge, MASAO presents a new spin on a traditional masculine style. RYO is a double-bridge panto, and YOKO a larger round – both are available as an optical or sunglass frame. Sunglasses AIMI, a subtle butterfly shape, rounds off the selection.
