I’m in love with another pair of MYKITA sunglasses and of course it’s another designer collaboration. I’m a proud owner of Alexandre Herchcovitch x MYKITA sunglasses and I loved playing with the MYLON pairs at the trunk show. The new collaboration is with Moncler which really has me freaking out.
In 1954 Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni became the first men to conquer the second highest mountain in the world, equipped with specially made down jackets by Moncler. A homage to the mountain and its conquerors was created in the form of the two sunglasses, LINO and ACHILLE, suitable for downhill runs and also as classic sunglasses for everyday use.
I love the Lino style because of the curved edges. I can’t believe they are good for skiing too. All I need is a Moncler puffy for the slopes.
Made from the polyamide-based material MYLON, developed and patented by MYKITA, the frames are very light, extremely durable and individually adjustable to the wearer. Both models are available in the colours red, blue and in a classic black. The frames are fitted with mineral glass lenses boasting excellent durability and clarity of vision, and reveal the MYKITA & Moncler logo when breathed on. The glasses come with a padded carry pouch for easy transport.
MYKITA MYLON x Moncler has a couple of videos about the collaboration. The Making of MYKITA MYLON x Moncler video below had me convinced that I need to own the Lino. The downside is they retail for £465.00. Ya, that in Pounds. Le sigh.
