Mykita

Mykita & Romain Kremer sunglasses,

I'm not a huge sunglasses person (I only have two or three pairs), but I totally love these collaborations between German eyewear company Mykita, and designers Romain Kremer and Bernhard Willhelm. Each pair is a miraculous construction engineered of a single piece of thin metal. Romain Kremer's sunglasses, which have replaced traditional lenses with metal slats, are modeled after Inuit sunglasses, which were constructed in a similar manner (if you want to see a good example, watch the excellent film, Atanarjuat, The Fast Runner). Bernhard Willhelm opted for a more traditional design, with one round pair and one square pair in a variety of colors for women, and a modern take on aviator glasses for men.

These sunglasses are brilliant. Their original design attracts my attention at first sight. Their unusual design is for self-confident people. These collections of fabulous fashion eyewear will not leave you indifferent.
