An in-depth study of form, color and surface laid the foundation for the Mykita x Damir Doma collaboration. Inspired by the idea of translating the traditional circular frames of the intellectual avant-garde into a modern expression is how the contemporary design series with models DD01, DD02, DD03 and DD04 came into being. The Mykita x Damir Doma collection is distinguished by a minimal aesthetic; visible construction and a progressive use of materials are recurring design elements. All frames are manufactured at the Mykita Haus in Berlin, where traditional handcraft meets modern engineering. The Mykita x Damir Doma Collection is a product incarnation for the present-day, where luxury is also state-of-the-art technology.
“These shapes perfectly round off the Damir Doma look. From the very beginning, our aim was to translate the traditional round form into something modern and create an iconic object,” said Doma.
Laurence, an oversized masculine frame is joining the Mykita x Damir Doma collection this season. Referencing the focus on textures in Damir Doma’s Spring 2015 clothing collection, Laurence is all about the embellished surface. Faux marbling in green and black or grey and blue, animate the model’s generous frame while recalling Art Deco surfaces of the 1930s.
Mykita is a modern manufactory that combines precision craftsmanship with new technologies. 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. Meanwhile, Damir Doma’s work is harmoniously linked by a sense of uniform and an obsessive interplay between shadow and light. Questioning the modern wardrobe, garments offer multiple expressions of identity – contrasting elements of androgyny with dress codes across cultural and historical spheres.
