Spectacle Loves Alain Mikli in NYC

Recently Jag went on a secret buying trip to NYC to meet up with some of our top collections. He also found a little bit of time for some great sight seeing but that is a blog for another time.

First up while in the Big Apple was a meeting with the fine folks from Alain Mikli

We have covered the illustrious history of Mr Mikli and his creations on this blog before and we brought you some lessons from inside his design studio recently but now here is a view of a different kind, check out a preview of some of these frames soon to be hitting the shelves at your local Spectacle.

One model that captured our hearts and is sure to be part of our fall line up is the Mikli 0952. A little larger and more square shaped then previous Mikli frames, this baby is a definite step into the future with a mind to the past.

As with all of his work Alain hand picks the acetates he uses to give him exclusive colorways and patterns.

Another couple of little known facts are that only 400 of any Mikli frame are ever produced and they are designed in tandem with acupuncturists to ensure the utmost comfort , making them even that much more special.

The Mikli 0952 and other pieces from his recent collection are available at the Spectacle location nearest and dearest to you because, Spectacle Loves You!
