global: mykita x moncler collection

© mykita - achille

that's right, mykita joined forces with moncler to create a collab collection that delves into the history of alpine expeditions while also paying homage to it. the collection consists of two unisex models, the achille with its straight top line and broad frame, has a distinct retro-futuristic look. the lino has a sweeping top line and slim frame,  and comes close to being a contemporary fashion statement. both frames are inspired by the look of 1950s alpine goggles, but the original leather sections on the sides and bridge to protect against the glare are today revisited via the flared frames.

a pivotal factor for the design process was mylon, a new material developed and patented by mykita after years of research. both models are available in the colours red/red flash mirror, blue/blue flash mirror as well as in a classic black/black flash mirror, in each case with mirrored lenses in the same colour or alternatively with solid grey-tinted lenses. frames are fitted with mineral glass lenses from italian manufacturer barberini. the mykita x moncler collab collection is exclusively available at the flagship stores of both brands across the planet from mid-december.
