MYKITA NEW BOUTIQUE IN MUNICH
Mykita opens its newest shop a stone’s throw away from the popular, high-end shopping district on Maximilianstraße.

Housed in a heritage-listed corner location formerly used as a gallery space, the new Mykita boutique in Munich presents the clear design language and handcrafted eyewear collections in a welcoming atmosphere where historical elements meet one-off furnishings and modern accents.
“To open in this stunning and strategically important location confirms how much we have achieved over the last decade and a half. We now welcome locals and hopefully soon international visitors to experience the world of Mykita in its entirety, from product and service to our design philosophy and sense of community,” said founder Moritz Krueger.
Breaking with the sleek, minimalist tradition of the shops, the shop design was also a collaborative with local architect office Stephanie Thatenhorst: Behind the beautifully restored façade of the historical building from 1881, oversized arched windows and doorways continue to set a grand tone for the shop interior followed up by the use of high-end materials, including marble surfaces, bronze mirrors, glass lights and custom-built furniture pieces from team Thatenhorst.
Alongside the full product portfolio, including the designer collaborations with Maison Margiela, Helmut Lang or Bernhard Willhelm to name a few, the shop incorporates a Zeiss Vision Center to provide a comprehensive optical service for customers.
