A constant search for innovation, the visionary use of materials and a wealth of experience in eyewear design are the defining elements behind MYKITA’s collections. A key factor in the company’s success is its holistic business philosophy, which brings together expertise from all disciplines under a single roof, the MYKITA HAUS. It thrives on the power of a self-contained network that enables interdisciplinary research and the transfer of technologies. This all-encompassing mentality is also reflected in the MYKITA Shops; the unique retail concept unites the firm’s own design principles with optical precision made in Germany.
MYKITA’s eyewear collections are available at the firm’s own shops in Berlin, Paris, New York, Los Angeles, Washington, Copenhagen, Monterrey, Cartagena, Zurich, Zermatt, Vienna and Tokyo as well as at selected opticians and fashion outlets in over 80 countries.
CELEBRATING AMERICAN CULTURE WITH A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE.
MONCLER ART DIRECTOR FRANCESCO RAGAZZI, INITIALLY STARTED HIS PALM ANGELS PROJECT IN THE FORM OF A MUCH BUZZED ABOUT COFFEE TABLE BOOK, FEATURING BLACK-AND-WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY OF THE L.A. SKATEBOARDING SCENES, SHOT BY RAGAZZI HIMSELF. THE BOOK PUBLISHED BY RIZZOLI IN 2014 – WHICH FEATURED A DOREWORD WRITTEN BY PHARRELL WILLIAMS – RESULTED IN A DEBUT READY-TO-WEAR COLLECTION FOR FALL/WINTER 2015. HIS DESIGNS CAN BEST BE DESCRIBED AS ASSORTMENT OF UPSCALE, SKATE-INSPIRED APPAREL AND ACCESSORIES, THE RESULT OF WHAT RAGAZZI SAYS HAPPENS WHEN HE MIXES HIS ITALIAN SARTORIAL BACKGROUND WITH THE LAID BACK VIBES HE ADMIRES SO MUCH IN SKATERS AROUND L.A.
“Thom Browne opened his doors in the fall of 2001, redefining the concept of tailored clothing. For spring 2004, Browne took his first step into ready-to-wear. All of the items from his ready-to-wear collection continue to be hand-made, but simply pre-made for the customer who values quality, fine detailing and a fresh vision. The collections have evolved into designs that have drawn attention from the fashion and design industries worldwide, often pushing the boundaries of conventional conceptions. In 2006, the original “by-appointment-only” shop in the Meatpacking District relocated to Hudson Street in Tribeca. In 2013, Thom Browne opened his first store outside the U.S. in Tokyo, followed by stores in Hong Kong and Seoul in 2014.”– CFDA
