French outerwear company Moncler and German sunglasses manufacturer Mykita joined forces in a project which explores new territories in the world of eyewear. Hommage to the Mountains by Mykita & Moncler are sunglasses that can be worn all seasons.
In 1954 Lino Lacedelli ( 4 December 1925 – 20 November 2009) and Achille Compagnoni became the first men to conquer K2, the second highest mountain in the world, equipped with specially made down jackets by Moncler. A homage to the mountain and its conquerors was created in the form of the two sunglasses, LINO and ACHILLE, suitable for downhill runs and also as classic sunglasses for everyday use.
The light frames of Mykita & Moncler Sunglasses are made from the polyamide-based material MYLON, developed and patented by MYKITA. Mylon is extremely durable. Both models are available in the colours red, blue and in a classic black.
The frames are fitted with mineral glass lenses boasting excellent durability and clarity of vision, and reveal the MYKITA & Moncler logo when breathed on.
