Moritz Kreuger – current co-founder and creative director of eyewear brand Mykita – was still kicking around in his Holland bike as a schoolboy in his northern German town, when Helmut Lang was already changing the fashion game of the ’90s alongside fashion pillars Yohji Yamamoto, Margiela and Jil Sander. But now that Kreuger has grown out of his bike and into a 3000-store company, the eyewear innovator has levelled up to finally team up with one of his major influences for an eyewear capsule set to showcase both their talents. Featuring two new futuristic-esque eyewear models, you’ve probably already seen the neon pink and yellow variations on the likes of Ashton Sanders and A$AP Ferg. While your sense of fashion probably isn't as elaborate as mentioned celebrities, the minimalistic tones of the visors make sure your 'minimal' wardrobe pairs just as well on your off-day fits. And soon, you’ll be able to get your own pair too: The eyewear will be available in the spring of 2020 at Mykita shops, Helmut Lang and select retailers.
