Sporting the same arrow-straight top line and super flat profile of its predecessor, sunglass model SELINA is a refined version of the Nineties rave-inspired KITT. A cropped cat-eye shape with slender metallic temples, SELINA features harmonious bicolour options such as Glossy Gold/ Rose. Beyond the sophisticated lacquering however this standout pair of shades is still very much in the offbeat, cheeky spirit of the MYKITA + MARTINE ROSE creative partnership.
ABOUT MARTINE ROSE
Founded in 2007 as a men’s shirting brand, Martine Rose draws its inspiration from the experi- ential tension between individualism and belonging; exploring the potential of clothing to serve as cultural signifiers. By exploring both personal and imagined histories, Martine Rose takes icons or motifs from the past and reimagines their use in the present – contexts are subverted, references collide, and the result is what makes each collection feel ‘offbeat’, and yet so ‘in tune’. Volume, proportion, and fabrication are used in an equally dynamic way to blur the lines between the familiar and unconventional, questioning the former functionality or past popularity of certain aesthetics through their re-appropriation today.
