This edgily stylish Parisian-based eyeglass carrier aims to be the Barney's of the frame business. Each Phillippe Starck-designed boutique is outfitted with Feng Shui precision, creating a flawless environment in which to find the most suitable, high-concept, or chic sunglasses. With crystal chandeliers, mahogany-lined display cases and portraits of smiling, bespectacled folk on the walls, the vibe is sophisticated with a touch of humor. You can browse the full range of Mikli's distinctive original designs, like the signature red-framed Rouge Passion collection and the whimsical Pact line with its pop-art, fabric-style prints. Mikli also carries the work of his design partner Phillipe Starck—whose frames tend toward the tried and true—and Japanese fashion icon Issey Miyake.
