The object of the day is the new KITT sunglasses, created by the collaboration between the brand Mykita and the London-based brand Martine Rose, founded in 2007 and is inspired by the tension between individualism and belonging. Both supporters of an offbeat aesthetic, the new sun lenses are a proof of both brands’ bent to push themselves over boundaries. Their language shares a bold preference for shape and proportion and is inspired by the icons and motifs from the past, to propose them in a new contemporary vision.
Strongly inspired by the dance underground ‘90s scene, the KITT sunglasses have a bold and euphoric cat-eye style frame that revolutionises the stereotypes of an era due to the cropped, arrow-straight top line and a super-flat profile.
Colours proposed are super solid in the shades antique red, new lime, royal blue and black, to complete the irreverent scenery proposed. The ironic spirit of inscriptions put on the sun lenses is also proposed on the packaging: made in a paper box version, it reminds of some products on the supermarket’s shelves.
Perfect to match with sportswear clothing, it looks like the Georgian designer’s style Demna Gvasalia, founder of the brand Vêtements, perfectly fitting in the current new aesthetic of normcore, with an in tune offbeat: definitely a must-have accessory!
