Michal Lojewski

Michal Lojewski is a Parisian designer whose work focuses on the interplay between black and white. It was only fitting then, that he bought these off-white “Johann” frames from Mykita. Michal liked the shape of these super round frames, which are inspired by the circular specs from the 1930s. Made from a thin yet durable stainless steel, they look equally as good – and fashion forward – in 2015. A wide, key-hole bridge, and Mykita’s signature hinges complete the look. (Also note how perfectly the bridge and nose pads rest on Michal’s nose)

You’ll see a lot of clear or translucent frames in the marketplace, but you don’t see this plaster-like shade too often. It’s not as stark as a pair of crisp white frames, but not as crazy as you’d think either. Paired with his hooded trench and sneakers, Michal makes these glasses look smart and mischievous at the same time.

Troy Dettwiler

“I wanted something bold and gold with a simple beauty,” Troy told us, about these “Hunter” shades from Mykita. “They are my go-to sunglasses – winter and summer.”

These stainless steel frames are part of Mykita’s “Decades Sun” Collection, which re-interprets classic shapes in modern and inventive ways. The gold accents and top bar add a luxurious contrast to the “Coral Red” shade. Slightly mirrored dark brown lenses complete the look. No screws are used in this design, which also features a patented snap hinge and rubberized tips for a more comfortable fit.

Tammie Isbister

We photographed Tammie outside of Gogosha Optique in Silver Lake, Los Angeles, where she picked up these “Dash” frames from Berlin-based eyewear brand, Mykita. Super chic and lightweight, these stainless steel frames feature Mykita’s signature screwless hinges, along with a double bridge in high polished gold. Originally designed as sunglasses, Tammie switched out the tinted lenses for opthalmic ones, creating a look that’s equal parts high fashion, and riot grrrl rock-and-roll.

We love the roundness of the lenses and the slim profile of these origami-inspired frames. The best part? The bright pop of color on the glasses (Mykita calls it “Brilliant Blue”) perfectly matches the color of Tammie’s earrings! We just want to know – did she buy the earrings to match the glasses or vice-versa?
