Alain Mikli Eyewear
An astounding contrast between the practical and the extravagant, the technical and the stylish, the precise and the entertaining. Alain Mikli is an optical revolutionary, totally transforming the optical fashion world 37 years ago, from a practical object that holds a spectacle lens to “eyewear for seeing and being seen in”, he created a cult brand, and all this before he turned 25.
Alain Mikli is respected as the most influential designer of eyewear, his innovative and devil may care style is unmistakable and inimitable. Functional is juxtaposed with fabulous, technically brilliant contrasted with visionary; his frames challenge the wearers to dare to be bold, they are confident and unabashed.
Mikli uses only the very finest materials. The acetate chosen is from the Mazzucchelli Company, giving the frames their intense hues and magnificent shine seen on every piece of Mikli eyewear. The patterns are exclusively used by Mikli; the titanium used is produced in Japan, where they use their expertise to produce the colourful, weightless yet tough titanium pieces in his collection.
As well as looking spectacular they are remarkably comfortable, Mikli uses weight distribution on his frames so the pressure is no longer focused on the ears and the bridge of the nose instead it is balanced across the whole frame.
