A leader of contemporary style, elusive Belgian-born Martin Margiela established his couture house is 1988. Transformation and deconstruction are always at the heart of the label's reinvented classics. Repurposed materials and distressed treatments is the idea behind the labels conceptualism and luxury.

The cutting-edge hinge concept developed by MYKITA constitutes an aesthetically appealing link between the frame front and temple. This is visible technology with a sophisticated look – the quintessence of the MYKITA form and function philosophy.

The reinterpretation of historical forms, radical experimentation with constructions and un conventional approach to materials. Duel is comprised of two pairs of acetate frames. Born of one form, then divided into pairs and deconstructed.

Aesthetic functionality. Essential, takes stainless steel frames and reduces them to raw material with no additive components. Inspired by historical shapes of the last century, the monochrome frames and matching lenses lend the models a pure, radical look.
