Introducing a collaboration between two industry leaders of engineering, design and quality made in Germany – the partnership between MYKITA and Leica is defined by its shared commitment to holistic product development, pioneering technology and precision craftsmanship.
The debut collection pairs the innovative product engineering of the independent eyewear manufacturer with the iconic design, finest lenses and optics from the premium camera brand.
Designed in collaboration with Leica and handcrafted at the MYKITA HAUS in Berlin, the MYKITA | LEICA collection is defined by its reduced, functional design focused on superior performance. Seamless mechanical solutions and material connections echo the beautiful precision engineering of Leica’s iconic products and create a refined eyewear aesthetic.
Signature elements from the Leica design language will resonate with brand enthusiasts while forming a new, standalone eyewear aesthetic: the geometric lens shape is a recurring theme, a reference to the frontal view of a Leica camera lens hood, or the distinctive lacquering inlays and the Leica font for the temple inscription, and ultimately the reduced colour palette made up of matt silver, black, taupe grey and red accents.
