Bernhard Willhelm x Mykita

It’s only been 5 years since the world was introduced to German “techno-chic” eyewear brand Mykita but right from the get go the German company has been getting attention with their classic and avantgarde elegant designs like FLASH frames we previously covered.


Mykita has collaborated with world renowned fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm who made some waves with his work on Bjork’s Volta album cover and is known for his street, fun, and chic style. The two got together earlier this year and created these stunning shades that take inspiration from winter sports, specifically the skiers at the 1976 Innsbruck Winter Olympics. The frames definitely give the wearer an edge in style over the standard clunky goggles with a look and feel like their molded to the face. The aerodynamically designed aviator frames are made of ultra-lightweight sheet-metal with 3 monochrome & mirrored colorways and the square Uschi model available in silver/black. The limited edition shades are now available exclusively at Opening Ceremony.
