The spring/summer 2013 sees a continuation of the colour and design concept behind the Mykita Decades line. The collection, released each year in sync with the rhythm of the Paris shows, will welcome two new
fashionable tones for the season. The colours of the sunglasses models Marlene and Scarlett represent a conscious break from classic forms; Coral Red, Pastel Grey and Opal, International Blue, Jet Black and Safrane follow up on the preceding collection and incorporate a combination of the traditional and the contemporary that is characteristic for the Decades line. The “Round” credo was definitive for both the prescription spectacles and the sunglasses line of the Decades collection. The Marlene model is a supersized variation on the classic panto form, given a far more fullbodied form and more prominent sides for the spring. The primary design element for the Scarlett model was the geometric circle. The striking colours and the dark lens tones give both models a cutout-like character. The gold-coated hinges and the semi-matt finish correspond with the subtle reflective gold layer on the lenses.
The further evolution of the Decades prescription line, which cites era-defining spectacles frames of the 20th century, likewise focussed on the “Round” and “Panto” themes. Both forms are again manifest in the new models Coco and Bibi. The latter combines bold dimensions with circular lenses, with the prominent bridge providing the contrast to the frame. In the case of Coco, too, the bridge is the main stylistic element. Both models are hand-painted and available in the colour combinations Gold/Coral Red, Gold/Opal and Silver/Black.
