Join us for an epic storybook adventure.
Told through eyewear.
(a tale of fashion, art and experience.)
In his latest collection, Alain Mikli takes direct inspiration from the rich color palette, retro-futuristic appeal and heroic austerity of Prince de Sassoun, a French comic book by Alban Guillemois and Yvon Bertorello. The comic is an inventive and fanciful retelling of Armenian folklore that imparts the importance of joy and optimism in the face of doom and gloom.
This Saturday, November 19th, we will explore this captivating fairytale as told through Alain Mikli and his creations. Complex constructions of acetate and steel foils are combined to create playfully bright and rhythmic layers that give the impression of volume. Frames are provocative and ethereal, light yet strong and exhibit the highest quality of craftsmanship and patented fit for which the Mikli brand is known.

Bon voyage, les hommes! Wink bids adieu to Mike, Brian and J. as they trek transatlantic to sniff out the newest eyewear fashions. It’s a heavy burden they carry as their sojourn takes them through Paris, London and Amsterdam in search of the unique, the daring & the innovative. Before they complete their Quest of Couture we here at Wink must make room for the new product–so now is your chance to save up to 40 percent on Alain Mikli, Ørgreen, Philippe Starck and Tag Heuer! Discounts good thru October 9th.
Philippe Starck – Alux color
Our dreams of an eternal summer may never materialize but the spirit of fresh fun in the sun lives on in the Starck Alux collection. Lustrous hues and ingenious design come together in an unbelievably comfortable frame. You need not be as clumsy as Philippe to benefit from his no-screw contortionist temple-hinge design. Anodized aluminum creates a lightweight frame and a canvas for quite honestly the most vibrant matte palette we’ve seen!
Alain Mikli, need we say more?
