Winter is about to get a little brighter with this early look at MYKITA and Maison Martin Margiela colab for Spring Summer 2015.

MYKITA and Maison Martin Margiela are linked by a shared concept of the creative process – the reinterpretation of historical forms, radical experimentation with constructions and an unconventional approach to materials.

Press CollectionThe two-tone MASON model blends two style eras. The classic aviator frame sported by 1960s Hollywood movie stars meets the conservative eyewear fashion of the Mc Carthy era, a time of political intrigue, stiff suits followed by the Watergate scandal. This unconventional fusion combines daring coolness with a new objectivity.

OSA and IDA incorporate a crossover from the 60s and 80s. The oversized frames and fine lines that characterised the latter field of experimentation meet a defining fashion statement of the former: the classic cat-eye form. The new colours Real Red (a vibrant red) and Violin (a lush purple tone) underline the mingling of these two era-defining forms.

For cool companions on a hot tropical night look no further than ELDRIGE & SULLIVAN. The colour gradient from tobacco-style Tobago to honey-like Amber gives these sporty Panto frames a summery look. Perfect match: a similarly coloured rum on the beach of Havana.

Stephane Marquet
Creative Director

First of all, excuse my French! … I was born in the South of France. Lived in Paris for 10 years and travelled the world until I moved to Los Angeles in 2008, because obviously recession was a great time to move to a new country! I also arrived around Halloween and was greeted at the Social Security offices by a nurse who directed to the window Number 6 so a witch could hand me my social security number. Welcome to America. I am a painter, a photographer and the creative director of BELLO mag.
