For some time MYKITA had been planning to make a collection incorporating a fuller-bodied material, and eventually decided on cellulose acetate. It features a new “snap-hinge” made of sheet metal familiar from the construction principals applied in the first collection. The connection point between the hinge and the acetate frame likewise represented a unique challenge for the designers. Looking at classic hinge solutions on acetate frames, they never liked the fact that a large gap was left between the temples and frame when the former are folded in. *Collection No.2* is an answer to this aesthetic problem.
