MYKITA acetate

The first precious pieces of MYKITA Acetate collection No.2* have arrived in DEJA VU last month ,The all-new hinge concept of the plastic line is equipped to win yet another row of design awards .
It's a bold statement towards the essence of Mykita - the passion for continuous innovation.

it was so exiting to receive it that we didn't had time to let you know ... sorry for that !

After one and a half years of research, we are proud to present a brand new snap hinge,” say Haffmans and Gottschling. “We managed to create a rotating axis by etching the material down to half of its thickness on both parts of the hinge. Regarding classic hinge solutions on acetate frames, we disliked the fact that as soon as the temples are folded in, a large gap between the temple and frame opens up. This collection offers an answer to this aesthetic problem.”
