MYKITA invited us to celebrate their latest collaboration with Martin Margiela, at their fabulous MYKITA Shop in New York.
The collaboration is crazy beautiful and so is the store. Definitely worth a celebration <3.
Photo by Eye Respect, great job! Both amazing glasses and a badass photo showcasing them.
Silky soft, light buffalo horn exquisitely sets off the fine structure of the encapsulated ebony wood. This is the latest from Danish FLEYE. Very interesting and beautiful design, no wonder they were honoured with the iF Product Design Award 2014. Congratulations!
Jono Hennessy is a family business from Australia, for three generations the family has been devoted eyewear artisans. Jono Hennessy, son of optician C.H Filmer Sceats, grew up watching his father doing eye exams and fitting fashionable glasses. Exceptional quality and fit is as important as the look, his father told him which is clearly still the spirit of Jono Hennessy eyewear today.
Model 8322 caught our attention. Not only is it a wonderful shape, the colours and patterns are truly amazing. Each colour is limited to 80 pieces each, worldwide.
The Bonocle pick:
Slightly caty yet classic shape, in interesting and unique colour combinations. It’s a Bonocle fav!
They did it again! The MYKITA / Damir Doma collaboration is probably the most exiting collab of the eyewear industry right now. High fashion combined with advanced technology and design at its best.
For the first time in pure acetate, this is model “DAWN”
I’m in love with all MYKITA / Damir Doma frames ever made. Haven’t seen any of their frames before? See previous collaborations here and here.
Woodone creates handmade glasses out of a piece of plywood, all made in South Tyrol. These two new designs caught my attention, very delicate shape and amazing glitter surface. Glam glasses 2.0!
Model Angus. Model Cameron.
The models above are available in several wood-styles as well, such as Walnut and Cherry. See all models and colours here.
I’ve heard several opticians being very conservative when it comes to wooden frames. A typical argument against wooden frames is that you can’t adjust them, Woodone however, has done a great job showing how to bend a Woodone-wooden frame in this video:
Haven’t heard of Smoke & Mirrors yet? Well, remember the name as you’ll probably see a lot more from them in the future. The brand was newly founded in New York and has brought together a worldwide team of designers with design studios in New York, Paris and in the heart of Tuscany. By looking at the designs you can easily tell the inspiration comes from the late 60s and 70s rock scene.
