Party with MYKITA

Join us this weekend for the MYKITA trunk shows.

MYKITA creates minimal, functional and durable frames for both gentlemen and ladies.  Their collection spans from amazing sunwear to sophisticated eyewear that can take you anywhere. Come see the new you.

We love MYKITA!  Thirteen years ago when we opened Wink eyewear in Lawrence, we brought in this tiny collection from Berlin.  We were intrigued by the ingenious hinge design, the lack of screws, the super flexibility of the material and how incredibly comfortable they were.

MYKITA quickly proved to be our top selling collection and has remained at the top for over thirteen years.

Join us this weekend to see the entire new collection!

  • Friday in St. Joseph, 10am to 6pm.
  • Saturday in Lawrence, 11am to 6pm.
  • Enjoy a beverage and small bites whilst you browse this incredible collection from our favorite German eyewear powerhouse.
  • We will have door prizes, a drawing for special prizes (including a free pair of lenses in 2019,) and gifts with purchase.
  • Save $100 on every pair of lenses in a MYKITA frame purchased during the show.
