Alain Mikli x Alexandre Vauthier

Alain Mikli & Alexandre Vauthier debut their avant-garde eyewear collaboration during the Spring ’18 Paris Haute Couture season. Drawing inspiration from the Vauthier runway and fashion photographers such as Helmut Newton and Guy Bourdin, the collection delivers the definition of the modern Parisian women. Alexandre Vauthier has made a mark in Haute Couture with his bold aesthetic, naturally making this eyewear collection unambiguously fierce.

The collaboration includes four signature styles; Edwidge, Edwidge jeweled, Roselyne, and Nadége. Inspired by the Mikli archive, Edwidge and Edwidge jeweled push boundaries with their shallow rectangular design. Roselyn, also inspired by the Mikli archive, is an ultra-feminine oversized frame adorned in Swarovski crystals. Nadége, a bid to Vauthier’s signature use of metallic, with its bold and futuristic design. These signature eyewear styles perfectly embody the Alain Mikli & Alexandre Vauthier woman.

Alain Mikli pour Oliver Peoples

Luxury American eyewear brand Oliver Peoples invited Alain Mikli to partner on a colorful capsule collection as part of their 30th Anniversary celebration. The collaboration introduces an exquisite palm tree pattern first created by Mikli in 1987, the year Oliver Peoples was founded. The pattern, named ‘Palmier,’ is French for ‘palm trees’ – a fitting reference for the California-based brand. The pattern was applied to two Oliver Peoples sunglass styles (Gregory Peck and Remick), invigorating both with a vibrant and new personality. Opposite the ‘Palmier,’ two original Alain Mikli frames feature iconic tortoise and metal treatments that are a hallmark of Oliver Peoples design. The collaboration is the perfect juxtaposition of each brand’s unique aesthetic. Helping bring the frames to life is Spanish Illustrator Juanjo Villalba Bermudez, whose beautiful ladies are imagined wearing various styles from the collaboration.

Jeremy Scott R18

The Alain Mikli brand partnered again with designer Jeremy Scott to create a few special runway styles for his Resort 2018 Show, which also celebrated his 20th Anniversary designing. The collection featured Jeremy’s trademark themes, including club wear, cartoons, camouflage and glitter, combined with street and sportswear. Alain Mikli contributed to the looks with three rhinestone-encrusted frames that reflected both brands avant-garde and eclectic aesthetics.

Most notable of these creations was the new 2018 style 'Miss J' in custom colors of lime green and pink, decorated with inlaid crystals. The extreme sunglass style is an homage to Grace Jones and blended in well with the bold images on the runway. Other Mikli designs included a bedazzled shield produced exclusively for the runway, and a style plucked from the Mikli archive dressed in oversized colored rhinestones.

Jeremy Scott FW17

For the Fall/Winter 2017 season of New York Fashion Week, the Alain Mikli brand and designer Jeremy Scott teamed up to design a second collaboration. Jeremy’s collection juxtaposed political undertones with style inspirations from pop culture favorites ranging from Michael Jackson, Vegas-era Elvis, to religious figures. Alain Mikli accented the collection with three rhinestone encrusted frames that embodied both brands evocative and unique aesthetics.

Over-sized star frames with rhinestones, a runway exclusive, helped bring Jeremy’s vision of glamour to life. Other Mikli designs included a custom variation of the Paon Aviator from the SS/17 Collection in black with contrasting silver/bronze rhinestones, and a custom rhinestone variation of the Jeremy Scott for Alain Mikli style for FW/17 in white and black.

Jeremy Scott SS17

The partnership with Jeremy Scott resulted in the creation of sunglasses that effortlessly reflect the DNA of both brands: two fashion labels with a strong aesthetic vision based on provocation, singularity and extravaganza. United by eccentric design and the use of bold colors and shapes to create artsy and conceptual styles, the brands aligned in the creation and subsequent launch of the re-edition of the iconic Asymmetrical frame and a newly co-designed frame. Both debuted during Jeremy Scott's Resort 2017 runaway show at New York Fashion Week 2016.
