MYKITA X HELMUT LANG CAPSULE COLLECTION
Mykita and Helmut Lang introduce a new formula for the wraparound sunshield featuring four individual lenses.
March 6, 2020
The Mykita x Helmut Lang collaboration releases two new eyewear models, HL001 and HL002, offering a new eyewear proposition that deconstructs the idea of a wraparound sunshield into component parts. Mykita and Helmut Lang are both known for designs that challenge the status quo and elevate functional elements into intriguing signature details.
HL001 and HL002, developed by the Mykita design team, headed by founder Moritz Krueger, and Helmut Lang creative director of ready to wear, Mark Thomas, introduce a new formula for the wraparound sunshield made of four individual lenses. The composition of the lens colors, includes neon and transparent options. Both models are handcrafted at the Mykita Haus in Berlin.
The side lenses make for a standout element on both models. Finely composed color combinations make a styling element of these functional details giving each model individual character and appeal. HL001 feels futuristic and forward with its straight top line and double bridge creating an angular, sharp look. Inspired by the iconic aviator silhouette the HL002 has a more fluid, curvilinear impression.
