I've been obsessed with all things Moncler lately and this Mykita X Moncler Spring 2012 sunglasses collection is pretty amazing. Joining together to explore new territories in the world of eyewear, Moncler and Mykita made these new frames from polyamide-based MYLON, a material developed and patented by Mykita. Can't wait to see them in stores!
In 1954 Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni became the first men to conquer the second highest mountain in the world, equipped with specially made down jackets by Moncler. A homage to the mountain and its conquerors was created in the form of the two sunglasses, LINO and ACHILLE, suitable for downhill runs and also as classic sunglasses for everyday use.
Made from the polyamide-based material MYLON, developed and patented by MYKITA, the frames are very light, extremely durable and individually adjustable to the wearer. Both models are available in the colours red, blue and in a classic black. The frames are fitted with mineral glass lenses boasting excellent durability and clarity of vision, and reveal the MYKITA & Moncler logo when breathed on. The glasses come with a padded carry pouch for easy transport."
