ALLISON’S OPPOSIT DEBUTS
Allison launches Opposit, a collection targeted to those who want to make an individual statement. The initial line consists of eight styles, available both as optical frames and as sunglasses. Each frame is accented with a metal cross and an arrow, symbolizing male and female. Inspired by earlier decades, the frame shapes range from trapezoidal and oversized designs to cateyes and perfect rounds in such colors as fuchsia, opal, pink and blue.
Mykita partners with French accessories brand Cote&Ciel, known for its iconic designs, to create a collection of colorful, protective eyewear pouches made from Cote&Ciel’s signature diamond grip mesh neoprene. An inverted zipper and safety lip prevent scratching of the eyewear, and an integrated microfiber cleaning cloth eliminates losing the cloth.
