Designed as a collaborative effort with London-based fashion designer Martin Rose, the KITT is a standout eyewear design that is expectedly ahead of the curve. Setting an offbeat eyewear aesthetic, KITT reveals the inclination of both labels to push boundaries, but also a shared design language with a keen understanding for shape and proportion.
The faux discount shop packaging sets the tone: KITT is a frame that does not want to be serious. A bold riff on the euphoric style of the Nineties dance scene, this would-be cat-eye subverts the wraparound shades of the era with a cropped, arrow-straight top line and a super-flat profile. Solid colours in Antique Red, New Lime, Royal Blue and Black round off the irreverent vibe.
The tongue-in-cheek spirit of the product packaging carries on via subtle inscriptions on the sun lenses.
KITT by MYKITA + MARTINE ROSE will arrive to MYKITA Shops and E-Shop, as well as selected fashion stores in mid-April 2018.
