Alain Mikli and Phillipe Starck – These are two Frenchman that have combined their forces. Alain Mikli is considered to be one of the most outstanding frame designers in the history of the eyewear industry. He hand makes his frames. They are European, they are colorful, they are dramatic, they are woven with colors that most people cannot even imagine combining together.
Phillipe Starck is kind of a rogue designer. He has Mikli eyewear a wide array of artistic vision from restaurant design and his own clothing brand to automobiles and motorcycles. Starck does projects for extraordinarily well known products and manufactures, but he is notorious for being handed a great product and coming up with a concept to make it even better.
In the combination of Alain Mikli and Phillipe Starck eyewear it is really some absolutely elegant men’s and women’s styles but with a 8-way hinge that allows it to be incredibly durable and extremely wearable. Mikli is one of the most comfortable frames people can put on yet they don’t give up anything on fashion points. Being European they want their frames to show, they are dramatic frames, and it’s rare to find men’s frames that could be called elegant and still be masculine. They are just very linear and clean and very flowing lines because they design their frames to fit the face.
