The MYKITA | LEICA: Optical precision. German engineering

09 Jun, 2021

MYKITA | LEICA is a collaboration between two industry leaders of design and quality made in Germany dedicated to bringing the highest level of engineering to the world of eyewear.

The MYKITA | LEICA partnership is defined by its shared commitment to holistic product development, pioneering technology and precision craftsmanship. Bringing together their areas of expertise into a collective development process, the partnership pairs the innovative product engineering of the independent eyewear manufacturer with the iconic design, the finest lenses and optics from the premium camera brand.

Designed in collaboration with the Leica design studio 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 unmistakeable design and create a refined eyewear aesthetic. The debut collection of sunglasses received the Red Dot Award for Product Design 2020.

The MYKITA | LEICA optical collection launches with four clean, timeless designs –

ML07 – ML10 – made of light and resilient stainless steel. Using precision detailing

and subtle colour accents, the iconic design language of Leica products is translated

into a refined, standalone eyewear aesthetic.

Optical models ML07 and ML08 return to established shapes from the sunglasses

line – functional details, such as the top bridge for additional stability, double as

a stylistic element to striking effect. Classic panto models ML09 and ML10 are

purposely reduced for a timeless character that recalls the iconic, sleek design of

Leica cameras – a super clean look that is further underlined in the monochrome

Leica Anthrazite finish.
