Text by Martina Randles

Eccentric fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm has linked forces with fellow German label Mykita, creator of handcrafted sunglasses to produce both men’s and women’s sunglasses for his Autumn Winter 09 ready to wear collection.

Circular sunglasses have made a resurgence this season and form one half of the women's range, inspired by the hippy rocker of the 70's cue bandannas, long hair and even longer dresses, Willhelm coins Janis Joplin as inspiration for his collection and consequently these glasses are aptly named Janis. In complimentary contrast the second style entitled Uschi and is more square in shape, both styles come in gold with brown fade, gold mirrored and silver with grey fade.

Willhelm has taken a sporty approach to menswear, après ski, his collection of ski wear features three models of shades, Franz, Sepp and Luke and match the colourways taken from the collection, blue, white and gold.

The sunglasses are available from June 2009.
