Alain Mikli symbolizes two design standards: maximum comfort and an unceasing devotion to art. The brand maintains these codes through constant experimentation with new materials and strong ties to the creative community, evidenced in our artistic collaborations and decades-long cache of iconic frames.
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.
