Mykita x Moncler Sunglasses Announced

Moncler has announced a partnership with Berlin based eyewear brand Mykita. Known for its highly technical and innovative approach. Mykita will only produced two models in collaboration with Moncler, each going on sale for only 6 months.

“Dubbed Lino and Achille, the two models feature a swept-back frame edge. Achille, with its straight top line and broad frame is the more avant-garde model. Lino’s sweeping top line and slim frame is a modern version of glacier snow glasses.

The looks are available in black, red and blue — the latter two the colors of the first Moncler down coats in the early Sixties. The frames are fitted with mineral glass lenses from traditional Italian manufacturer Barberini.

All lenses reveal the Mykita & Moncler logo when breathed on, and feature an antifog finish on the inside of the lenses and an antiscratch outer coating. The glasses come with a padded sleeping bag style carry pouch in addition to a black case and box.”


Mykita is exclusive to Henry Smith & Hamylton Opticians in Leicester.

Christian Dior 2011/12 glasses: the Godron statement

Christian Dior‘s fall/winter 2011/12 optical collection features the Godron decoration – the parellel lines at the edge of the frame and towards the hinge. This detail, inspired by fluting on Louis XVI’s chair, is also used on many vintage Dior frames and sunglasses.

Berg’s Little Printer


Design studio Berg has announced a new product, the Little Printer, which will be available for purchase in 2012. According to Berg’s blog, the Little Printer “lives in your front room and scours the web on your behalf, assembling the content you care about into designed deliveries a couple of times a day”.

The film below shows the Little Printer in action:


Users configure the Little Printer from their mobile phones, and the product launches in partnership with Google, the Guardian, Nike, Arup and foursquare. The Little Printer will receive personalised information from these sites, and presumably other sources as it gets up and running. It is the first product that uses the ‘Berg Cloud’ technology, a new way of connecting and controlling wireless products in the home. The Little Printer wirelessly connects to a small box plugged into a broadband router, which is controlled by a mobile phone rather than a PC.

“We love physical stuff,” say Berg on their blog. “Connecting products to the web lets them become smarter and friendlier – they can sit on a shelf and do a job well, for the whole family or office – without all the attendant complexities of computers, like updates or having to tell them what to do.”

We’ve yet to see the Little Printer in action: judging from the film we do wonder whether a small paper print out will be able to contain the huge amount of news, opinions and ideas that come at us digitally every day. And people will undoubtedly flag up the question of paper wastage. But, having said that, paper still holds a huge place in our lives; as Berg puts it: “Paper is like a screen that never turns off. You can stick it to the fridge or tuck it in your wallet. You can scribble on it, or tear it and give it to a friend.”

More info on the Little Printer is at the Berg website,, where you can also join the mailing list to be the first to be informed on news about the product launch.
