The fashion brand Mykita offers a line of 3D-printed material sunglasses in its collection called HYBRID including a specific pair dubbed the MYLON that offer strong frames with a flexible design. The sunglasses are made using 3D-printing technology to design the eyewear as well as create it.

The MYLON sunglasses feature a vintage aviator-style silhouette that is contrasted with the modern technology used to create the frame. The light brown frames feature a heavy duty strength paired with a flexible bend and lightweight shape that is ideal for everyday use.

The use of 3D-printed materials are becoming more and more readily available in fashion accessories as the technology becomes more affordable for brands to mass-produce products.
