Often referred to as one of the most influential eyewear designers of the 20th century, Alain Mikli’s distinctive eyewear designs are bold and vibrant with an original and innovative style and exciting take on color.
The brand first launched in Paris in 1978 and quickly became a favorite with celebrities like Elton John, Kanye West, and Grace Jones, propelling him onto the international stage as an eyewear designer of extraordinary stature and fame, loved by the world of fashion.
Today his frames are equally sought after across the world for their design aesthetic as frames to wear “to see and be seen.”.
The Eyewear Collection
Daring experimentation with materials and bold, dramatic design are fundamental characteristics of Alain Mikli Eyewear, just as they were in the early years of the brand when Mikli was creating iconic designs like the extraordinary statement frame, Asymétrique.
The sunglasses always offer glamour and unique flair, with exotic patterns and colored tortoise effects, retro modern overtones and super statement shapes.
The optical collection proposes acetate and metal shapes, with signature features - the characteristic straight top line that Mikli is known for - as well as feminine cat eyes and round shapes in colorful, joyful patterned Havana hues.
What To Look For
Eye-catching acetate patterns, eye-catching colors and re-interpretations of iconic archive styles are typical traits of the Alain Mikli Eyewear collection today.
The black and white geometric acetates are an all-time favorite for Mikli connoisseurs as are the shapes with strong angles and sleek cut-outs that define a frame shape and make it unique.
A part of the legacy of the brand, the eyewear styles with an “eyebrow” top bar remain charismatic and exciting to wear. The perfect eyewear statement!
