French luxury eyewear brand Alain Mikli offers unique, high-quality sunglasses & frames. Founded in Paris in 1978, the young brand has achieved global recognition and popularity while maintaining high quality manufacturing. Over the years, Alain Mikli has collaborated with fashion designers such as Jean Paul Gaultier, Issey Miyake, Jil Sander, Claude Montana, and Donna Karan (now DKNY.) Known for their colorful acetates and dramatic designs, Alain Mikli has always been admired by artists with a particular fondness for the art of avant-garde fashion, including Grace Jones, Elton John, and Lady Gaga. Their famous Asymmetrical “Asymétrique” was brought to the public eye in 1983 by Helmut Newton’s editorial in Vogue. In ‘96, the brand collaborated with Philippe Starck to create the first screwless hinge. Alain Mikli is constantly re-designing in sync with the ever-changing worlds of fashion, art, and culture. The individuality of each style comes from a long process of conceptualizing, revision, and final design. Crafted in Italy with traditional artisanal and modern techniques. Quality is ensured by attention to detail by the craftsmen and exclusive sourcing of materials from trusted suppliers.
