Where the runway meets the street

After announcing the collaboration between MYKITA and Maison Martin Margiela last week, we’re now able to check out the collection in full via an accompanying lookbook. The collaboration consists of two collections, Dual and Essentials, and blends the innovation and forward-thinkingness of both design houses.

Dual is comprised of two pairs of acetate frames, born of one form, then divided into pairs and deconstructed. Overall, the collection rounds up four unisex styles in five colorways.

Essentials, meanwhile, takes stainless steel frames and reduces them to raw material with no additive components. A thick, transparent powder coats and seals the frames giving the entire construction a convex, all-enveloping body. Inspired by historical shapes of the last century, the monochrome frames and matching lenses lend the models a pure, radical look. In total, Essentials features six unisex styles in four colorways.

Look for the collaborative collection to hit select retailers in the coming weeks as well as MYKITA’s online shop.
