Today we are going to take our first look at Alain Mikli sunglasses on the blog. The famed French designer of high-end handmade sunglasses has been making his eyewear for over 20 years and is popular with European celebrities. Recently, he’s become better known in America because he made the sunglasses seen in Kanye West’s video for Stronger. Here is a look at three models from the current line.
With this first frame you will notice the care put in when choosing colors. It’s hard to see from the pictures, but the frame is actually translucent with patterned black acetate running through it. It is finished with the red tops over the eyes, which are also partially translucent. They style is similar to a cat-eyes shape, but the angles are not as sharp as vintage cat-eyes sunglasses.
This final style shows how loud Alain Mikli sunglasses can really get. They are very asymmetrical. The colors are as just as loud as the shape. This is of course not something you could wear every day.
