MYKITA and Maison Margiela are linked by a shared concept of the creative process – the reinterpretation of historical forms, radical experimentation with constructions and an unconventional approach to materials. The CRAFT collection reimagines a historical, ornamental aesthetic in a modern, functional context. Stainless steel frames are meticulously handcrafted to appear like eyewear jewellery: Intricate metal work with multiple bends and curves transform thin steel sheets into fine constructions with three-dimensional depth.
Lenses in intense solid colours are held in all-metallic structures evoking the look of Victorian jewellery pieces. MYKITA is a modern manufactory born in Germany that combines precision craftsmanship with new technologies. A constant search for innovation, the visionary use of materials and a wealth of experience in eyewear design are the defining elements behind MYKITA’s collections.
Maison Margiela is a conceptual and free-spirited fashion house founded in Paris in 1988. In constant evolution, the creative collective Maison challenges and reinvents Margiela’s vision. Iconoclastic, irreverent, the Maison is a cross-section between fashion and design with its many lines.
