Mykita optical illusion for Damir Doma

July 15 2015
The latest model in the Mykita collection by Croatian stylist Damir Doma combines modern artisan craftsmanship, historical shapes and a construction that creates an optical illusion: Bradfield looks like two models in one. The outside frame, classic panthos model in stainless steel which is only 5 mm thick, is combined with a geometrical round shape. Inspired by the pince-nez of the late 19th century, the round lenses seem to hang from the front. The trompe l’oeil effect is enhanced by the similarity to the click-on sun lenses typical of the Eighties. Following the principle of Mykita design, the front of the eyewear is hand folded 180 degrees in various stages, starting with a bi-dimensional surface that is shaped and snapped into the outside of the frame. Bradfield comes in color combinations silver/black with grey-black lenses, gold/ forest green with green lenses, and silver/ash grey with silver mirrored lenses.
