Mykita x Damir Doma: DD01 Collaboration

It’s collaboration nation in Paris right now- with designers pairing up left and right with everything from macarons to sunglasses. In the case of Damir Doma, fashion’s favorite Croatian-born design star, and Berlin-based spectacles brand Mykita, their collaboration was a match made in heaven.

Titled DD01. A construction, from the Latin constructio which means layer together, build up, or erect.

The progressive use of contrasting matierals, the aesthetics of an openly displayed construction and the melange of cool and warm color tones are the deining elements of DD01, the latest liaison between Mykita and Damir Doma.  What began with an in-depth study of forms, colors and surfaces over the course of the collaboration, ultimately developed into a circular silhouette in stainless steel and horn. The combination of cool stainless steel and warm natural horn creates both visual and haptic contrast, reminiscent of the characteristic mixture of coarse, stiff fabric and soft flowing textures in Doma’s collections.

The result is a futuristic look that elevates the recurring round motif in Doma’s work to another level.  At the same time, DD01 is a historic reference to the round glasses worn by the intellectual avant-garde throughout time.

DD01 can be purchased in all Mykita shops, the Damir Doma flagship store in Paris, and selected opticians and fashion stores starting in Spring 2013.

VERDICT: « Guilty of talent »
