Los Angeles, CA – The Summer 2019 Collection continues to strengthen and evolve the values of Alain Mikli through new acetate patterns and re-interpretations of iconic archive styles. Inspired by original Mikli colors, Violet Spotted Tortoise and Yellow Tortoise Horn make their debut. These acetate patterns are made of complex materials, designed using layering techniques and intense color effects. This season’s eyewear perfectly launches these rich and vibrant hues.
The optical offering launches two new classic shapes accentuated through the use of Branson technology. Ponceau and Nº861 are angular designs with strong lens shapes for statement looks. Ponceau was created with the Mikli woman in mind. The upswept cat eye is accentuated with a dimensional beveled cut to enhance the already material. Nº861 is inspired by an original Mikli piece from the archive. Designed for those who want to go bold, this frame features a straight top line and key hold bridge for an edgy look.
The sunglass collection features a wide range of novelty and timeless frames. Nº862 and Nº863 are inspired by original Mikli sunglasses that are modernized with a flat plastic cut and strong angles for a strong silhouette. With innovation in mind, the Fiare is the evolution of the Ayer sunglass. Exclusive acetates in elaborate colors, cutouts and open spaces make this frame a piece of art. Marmion offers privacy with its oversized teardrop shape and slight endpiece wrap for a look reminiscent of the 80’s fashion icons. Callot features a single bridge for a contemporary metal design.
To complete the collection, hero styles Desir and Le Matin are updated with new color additions in Violet Spotted Tortoise, Brown Tortoise Horn, and Crystal.
The collection will be available in stores May 2019.
