Mita Eyewear: Sustainable style
Author: Yiannis Kotoulas
Founded in Miami, Mita Eyewear has begun to dig out a niche with its sustainable eyewear collections. Collezione 2 is no different and features a selection of spectacles and sunglasses for men and women.
The company said the new collection had been constructed with recycled aluminium and plastic from recycled water bottles. Demo and plano lenses from the collection have also been designed to biodegrade along with all components and packaging.
Amalfi, a cat’s eye frame designed for women and made from recycled PET plastic, has been inspired by a classic shape popular in the 1940s and incorporates gradient lenses to match pastel-coloured rims. Available in black, pastel yellow or dusty purple with contrast tortoiseshell temples, each frame is equivalent to five recycled bottles.
MIO1019 is a slimmed down optical version of Mita’s Sorrento frame and utilises the same double-bridged aviator silhouette. Recycled aluminium metal adorns the frame’s upper rims and bridges with different coloured aluminium used for the thin, minimalist temples.
