MYKITA hails from Berlin, Germany, and its name was inspired by a former daycare centre called Kita. Today, the name Mykita continues to represent the culture of curiosity and learning that continues to define the eyewear company.
MYKITA has become known over the years for its lightweight frames, use of innovative materials and fashion-forward designs that redefine luxury eyewear.
A defined sense of transparency, pure and minimalistic: LESSRIM is ultimate refinement in eyewear.
MYKITA reinterprets the traditional rimless concept with the help of latest advancements in surface treatment technology. Ultra-fine rims hold the lenses without the need for perforation. Only 0.5 millimetres wide, the stainless steel rim lies flush in the groove of the lens perimeter leaving a faintly shimmering outline.
Pure shapes meet with subtle metallic colourways and understated functional detailing for virtually translucent aesthetic. The tapered stainless steel temples feature an elongated acetate temple end to optimise the weight balance of the glasses. This reduced material concept amounts to outstanding lightness and comfort.
Collection NO1 laid the foundation for MYKITA.
Fashioned from stainless steel sheets, the frames are made into a three-dimensional structure through a series of bending and folding steps, similar to the Japanese art of origami.
The modern principle behind the openly displayed spiral hinge represents the design approach that has informed all subsequent MYKITA collections: the technical solution must also be an aesthetic one.
The LITE collection is defined by modern silhouettes and pure constructions.
Whether primarily made of sleek stainless steel or in a material mix with acetate, the reduced LITE design concept stands for supreme comfort in a refined aesthetic.
Classic panto shapes of the Thirties, strong lines of the Sixties or the oversize forms of the Seventies and Eighties – the DECADES collection interprets historical eyewear styles for the here and now.
