Continuing the #HSDecade, we team up with renowned eyewear manufacturer MYKITA, whose headquarters we happen to share in Berlin, on the ATKA.
The model combines two contrasting materials – warm acetate and stainless steel – to create a perfectly balanced and super lightweight frame. The nearly translucent front in Nassau is paired with temples in Shiny Graphite, a modern mix of surfaces that accentuates the elegance of the construction. Completing the design, the tailored click-in connection creates a subtle trademark in the shape of a small metal square in the acetate.
In our founder’s own words:
“The fusion of past and future – bringing the classic look-and-feel of acetate together with the modern engineering that MYKITA is so known for – creates a product that has all the lightness and function of progressive design but in a timeless aesthetic.”
The rose gold colorway is highly limited to only 30 pairs and not for sale, as it will be gifted to some of fashion’s most forward influencers, while the black is limited to 300 pairs worldwide. The MYKITA for Highsnobiety model ATKA will be available from May 12 in select MYKITA shops and fashion retailers, as well as the MYKITA online shop and Highsnobiety online shop.
