Mykita Sunglasses

High end and avante-garde, the MYKITA HAUS in Berlin is where it all happens. Since 2003 MYKITA has been making individual and unmistakable hand-assembled eyewear and MYKITA’s uber chic and luxurious designs are now an eyewear fashion lover’s fave. MYKITA is a big name in eyewear with its patented no screws hinge concepts and clear design signature.

Collaborative ventures with avant-garde designers such as Bernhard Willhelm or Alexandre Herchcovitch have seen MYKITA appearing on international catwalks and become an established feature of the fashion world too.

The name MYKITA comes from “Kita” a common abbreviation for German day nursery (Kindertagesstätte) and is a reference to the brand’s first premises in a former day nursery and even now one key to all the MYKITA design philosophy is that all the production steps are still integrated under one roof. The creative core behind the brand is its four founders Moritz Krueger, Philipp Haffmans, Daniel Haffmans and Harald Gottschling.

The dedicated workshop in Berlin combines cutting-edge materials with high-tech component production and traditional hand assembly.

MYKITA made its debut on the eyewear market with COLLECTION NO1. This metal frame collection boasts not only innovative and functional design, but also MYKITA’s patented hinge that removes the need for awkward screws and soldering. The rest is a story of eyewear advances.

At MYKITA a technique known as Selective Laser Sintering means three-dimensional structures can be made without the form-related limitations of conventional injection moulding tools. MYLON boasts unlimited design options, its remarkable lightness translating into unmatched wearability – however large the frame. In addition, the material’s thermal adaptability means the frames are fully adjustable.

Celebrity fans continue to queue up for MYKITA’S stylish designs. The global press loves it too. Now you can own your very own piece of eyewear legend with MYKITA at Sunglasses Shop.
