Mykita Eyewear – No. 2 Series - Simplicity and Charm

Launched as recently as 2004, Mykita eyewear has grown from a small little German brand to a big name among celebrities.  Founded by Harald Gottschling, Daniel Haffmans, Philipp Haffmans, and Moritz Krueger, their focus on innovation truly stands out. Like many German eyewear companies, the quality of Mykita frames is excellent and their design is only of the reasons they are becoming very popular everywhere.  The frames have no screws on them anywhere.  They use a simple fastening method to connect the metal frames to the temples, and a sheath system for the acetate frames.  Their No.1 series was all stainless steel frames, while No.2 series (part of which you see below) are the acetate frames.




They have been spotted on the faces of many famous celebrities such as Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie, Bruce Willis, Hugh Grant and many more.  This can’t hurt their growth at all.  They have not been found on my face sadly.   

If you want to get a pair for yourself and have the pocket to back it up, head to their website and search through retailers.  If you can’t find anything near you, leave a message and they will get back to you.

HELP! Lil' Wayne wore a sick pair of super dark black sunglasses last night on SNL, only during his first song. He had some other ones on for the second. But the ones in the first- WHAT ARE THEY?! WHO MAKES THEM?! You are the only person I know who will know where I can get my paws on them.

p.s. those super flat tops below. amazing. A. MAY. ZING.

Hey mollycake,

I just found the clip of Lil' Wayne performing "Got Money". Was it the shades during that song? Because those look exactly like a model by Ksubi called Grille. I'm 95% sure it's them. You can tell because the grille that is on the bridge (above the nose there are 3 lines cut in the lens). Check their website.
