MYKITA – Fun is Their Namesake
So, who exactly is MYKITA anyway? This German eyewear brand was founded in Berlin in 2003 by Moritz Krueger. Fascinatingly, the very first location was in a former daycare called Kita, which led to the name choice of “my kita.” The brand’s earliest foundation was built upon curiosity, playfulness, and open-mindedness, which we find still shines through the brand’s personality today and sets them apart in the eyewear market.
MYKITA began for the highly motivated self-starter who was not afraid to venture out and carve their own path in their own way. The open-minded basis of the company is interwoven into their culture and work environment today, 18 years later. As a result of establishing themselves with an innovative vision, their product designs naturally followed suit.
In 2014, MYKITA made the move to Kreuzberg in Berlin, which is a neighborhood busting at the seams with eccentric design, creativity, and people boldly being themselves. The funky energy of Kreuzberg can be felt in MYKITA’s designs, as they are always welcoming experimenting with new ideas. MYKITA is not afraid to venture out of what might be a comfort zone and play around with new styles, colors, and shapes. Even better, MYKITA never compromises on quality. Amidst the playfulness of the brand is a stark dedication to using only the finest quality materials.
At The Eye Gallery, we believe that the eyewear you buy is one of the most important investments one can make. Therefore, our intentionality behind choosing brands is always that of providing you with only the best eyewear options out there. We actively strive to have a pair of frames for all personalities, styles, and occasions because the eyewear you choose is an extension of who you are, and even who you want to be. We believe MYKITA can be the answer you have been searching for, which is why we are proud to offer you one of the best selections of MYKITA in Texas.
Independent Manufacturing as a Gold Standard
Berlin is a city simply oozing with creativity, vision, and innovation, continually inspiring new ideas across all markets. The spirit of Berlin is palpable in MYKITA’s one-of-a-kind eyewear designs. In fact, just as MYKITA was founded through good, old-fashioned hard work and ingenuity, the same is true when it comes to their creation and manufacturing process. When MYKITA was just starting out, they realized they had nobody to have manufacture their designs and bring their unique vision to life, so they chose to take a risk and implement their own in-house production methods. In fact, they designed their own tools that were specifically needed for their eyewear pieces, as well as streamlined the workflow that was best for bringing products to MYKITA’s special clientele. MYKITA beautifully merges timeless craftsmanship with modern technologies, which is a feat in and of itself.
MYKITA takes a rather straightforward approach when it comes to their design process, but it is a widely recognized approach. A distinguished element of all MYKITA designs is the openly displayed spiral hinge, which, of course, serves a vital function, but also an aesthetic identifier. This spiral hinge became part of the MYKITA identity — blending both the technical and the aesthetic.
Moreover, MYKITA is purposeful when it comes to going against the grain. They invest in researching and developing entirely new concepts, including styles, colors, and materials. If you are looking for frames that are characteristic of breaking the mold and going outside of comfort zones, MYKITA is the brand for you.
