MYKITA and Helmut Lang are both known for designs that challenge the status quo and elevate functional elements into intriguing signature details. With this new collaboration, the brands have developed a new eyewear proposition that deconstructs the idea of a wraparound sunshield into component parts.

HL001 feels futuristic and forward with its straight top line and double bridge creating an angular, sharp look.

Inspired by the iconic aviator silhouette the HL002 has a more fluid, curvilinear impression.

HL001 and HL002, developed by the MYKITA design team - headed by founder Moritz Krueger, and Helmut Lang’s creative director - Mark Thomas, introduce a new formula for the wraparound sunshield.
