Always pushing the envelope in eyewear design, Mykita introduces HYBRID, a collection of 3D-manufactured sunglass styles in classic silhouettes that combine stainless steel with matt laser sintered MYLON. The 3D manufacturing process allows for stronger frames that are also lightweight and flexible. They've also added MYLON components for grip on the nose and the temples and their patented snap hinge design loses the screws for a more durable and streamlined look.
