Mykita and Helmut Lang have collaborated on the design of two new eyewear models, HL001 and HL002, to be released in spring 2020. The eyewear debuted at the Helmut Lang SS20 runway show during New York Fashion Week on September 7th, 2019.
The two brands 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. Contrasting lens colors on both models, including neon pink and yellow variations, reflect the major color and material themes of the SS20 Helmut Lang collection.
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.
Both models are handcrafted at the Mykita Haus in Berlin.
