Mykita presents a new acetate aesthetics for the sunglasses season: frames that are sandblasted after being cut

Mykita presents a new acetate aesthetic for the sunglasses season. Instead of going through a tumbling and polishing process, frames are sandblasted after being cut. The chiseled, raw edges on the resulting eyewear are traces of the acetate milling process; sandblasting creates a frosted, ‘chilled’ appearance of the acetate surface. The unique surface treatment debuts on voluminous, bold sunglasses from the Mykita acetate collection. All frames are made from a circular acetate renew material and are handmade in Berlin.

Four new sunglass models are introduced that provide the best possible canvas to showcase the Chilled Raw surface concept. Lome and Dakar make a cool, powerful impression both with a flat, clean, blocky front. Lome is the larger of the two rectangular frames, while Dakar offers a slightly slimmer silhouette. Offering a more sculptural silhouette, Kilenda is an oversize square shape, and Kiene, a larger panto shape, perfectly show off the pure geometry and distinctive fine material facets achieved by the Chilled Raw surface treatment. Colourways include classic dark options as well as lighter shades.
