Shades of Margiela

Maison Martin Margiela has teamed up with Berlin eyewear brand Mykita

Mykita Margiela Sunglasses

Despite the departure of Maison Martin Margiela’s mysterious founder and creative director in 2009, the Parisian fashion house has maintained his irreverent creativity. (See Spring 2014‘s bejeweled undergarments and Fall 2014‘s deconstructed Victorian pieces for proof.) Their latest offering: sunglasses made in collaboration with Berlin’s fashion-forward eyewear brand Mykita. The capsule collection is divided into two groupings, one in monochromatic metal, the other in multi-colored acetate, with shapes that reference the ’20s, ’30s, ’40s and ’70s. “Margiela is a really freethinking brand in the world of fashion, and we are very much playing by our own rules in the world of eyewear,” said Moritz Krueger, Mykita’s creative director, who was at Mykita’s New York boutique to discuss the sunglasses. “It felt very natural to work together.”
