The frames are made of just powder. Wait now, what? POWDER? Yes, Powder.
MYKITA presented their new series of Mylon Frames at Silmo in Paris. Mylon is like nothing else you’ve seen or touched before!
The first Mylon collection was fun and experimental while this new collection is wearable, sporty and more useable.
The material Mylon is very special and the making of these frames is not like any other. The shape is drawn in 3D in a computer, a laser beam then prints on powder made of Nylon in layers after layers. Where the laser hits, the Nylon melts and hardens. This allowes MYKITA to experiment with the shapes and make really advanced frames! Afterwards the front and temples are lifted out and most of the remaining Nylon powder can be reused again. The parts are softened, colored and treated so that the surface feels alost like wood (very comfortable against the skin!) and the parts are put together with MYKITA’s special screwless hinges. The color won’t rub off and the material is super durable, it can’t break, but all Mylon frames can be adjusted.
This collection is a little bit more sporty, they fit very well around the head and they all come with Zeiss lenses in different colors. This is really a light and stylish sports sunframe that can be worn in the city as well! You can even put corrective lenses in most of the models!
