French-Armenian born luxury eyewear designer, Alain Mikli opened his design studio in 1978 in Paris. He started designing glasses and sunglasses that are unique in style and are made to create a fashion statement.
His exclusive handmade eyewear designs include creative, colourful styles made of the finest materials for a perfect fit and all day comfort. Since the 1980’s the brand has grown to be one of the most exclusive designer eyewear labels selling the finest luxury glasses and sunglasses around the world.
The brand’s approach is that glasses are ‘art for the face’, rather than a necessity. Alain Mikli glasses are made using the latest technologies and are fully bendable and reshapable.
Since the beginning, Alain Mikli eyewear has been a favourite among celebrities, worn by Elton John, Meryl Streep, Hillary Duff and Paris Hilton. The famous Alain Mikli shutter sunglasses were specifically designed in the music video for ‘Stronger’ by Kanye West and created a real global fashion trend.
The glasses and sunglasses brand has collaborated with several high profile designers such as Issey Miyake, Jil Sander and Philippe Starck on exclusive eyewear collections.
Today the brand is available in 10 countries for the fashion forward men and women. The brand is part of the Luxottica eyewear group since January 2013.
Alain Mikli eyewear and the exclusive Starck Eyes collection are available at FashionEyewear.co.uk and in our Chiswick store.
