Future forward eyewear for Spring/Summer 2011

MYKITA has certainly never shied away from teaming up with an avant garde designer to offer a far-future look at eyewear. Their designs with Rad Hourani — as well as their headscratching Yuri sunglasses — are exercises in the eccentric. This latest collaboration effort with designer Bernhard Willhelm may not be as pioneering, but they’ll certainly turn some heads. Available in 3 styles, the Jacques-Yves, Philippe and Frédéric (above), all 3 frames are made mylon, a maleable material that thermally adapts to the shape of your face. Willhelm apparently took inspiration from the sausage-like art work of Austrian artist Erwin Wurm and combined it with a scuba mask aesthetic. Eccentric? You could probably argue the case. The the MYKITA x Bernhard Willhelm collection is available at any of MYKITA’s flagships and at select boutiques across the planet, including Opening Ceremony [LA + NYC], Punto Ottico [Milan], Tsum [Moscow], The Counter [Cairo] and Zío [Seoul]

Two more additional (but very similar) designs and colors after the Jump…
