MYKITA + PERLON
A FRUITFUL COLLABORATION
WHERE PRODUCT DESIGN MEETS
MUSIC MEETS GRAPHIC DESIGN
A TREAT FOR THE EYE
MYKITA partners with PERLON RECORDS for the release of a custom eyewear design, marking the 20-year anniversary of the Berlin-based label.
The resolution sunglasses model PERLON 115 represents the minimalistic and experimental sensibility that connects the two labels.
BLACK + SHINY SILVER
ORANGE + SHINY GRAPHITE
BLACK + SHINY COPPER
Sunglass model PERLON 115 is a characteristic MYKITA stainless steel frame in a navigator style with a subtly polygonal lens shape and bicolour surface design.
Developed by Chris Rehberger, PERLON co-founder, also founder and creative director of DOUBLE STANDARDS, in close collaboration with MYKITA. The unique shape of the lenses originates from the PERLON logo typeface. All the individual letters Chris layered, rotated and melded to form one absolute outline.
The two-toned surface pattern stems from cropping the PERLON logo, a reference to the label’s iconic record sleeve designs
SIGHT AND SOUND
PERLON 115 comes limited to 50 pieces each colour. An exclusive limited edition package pairs the sunglasses with the 7″ vinyl PERL115 by Markus Nikolai featuring sounds from the modern manufactory in the MYKITA HAUS.
