Like a g6



Far east movement is this new group I heard on the radio,
they are climbing fats in the Dutch charts and their song like a g6 is stuck in my head
In the video clip there isn't much outstanding fashion going on, accept for the wicked sunglasses that everyone is wearing. I searched around the web and I finally got a brand name to match tot the sunglasses. They are from Mykita. As the site says:
MYKITA was founded 2003 by Harald Gottschling, Daniel Haffmans, Philipp Haffmans and Moritz Krueger. What to some may sound like an Asian-style name was in fact inspired by the firm’s first premises – a former day-care centre for children (in East Germany abbreviated to „Kita“).


Here are some of their glasses they sell.


MYKITA & Herr von Eden

The collections of Herr von Eden are a marriage of classic sophistication with a distinctive take on modernity. Bent Angelo Jensen joined forces with eyewear couturiers MYKITA to create a glasses frame that would embody the concepts behind his clothes collections: the EDENEYES model. The result is simple but profound, likewise exuding a clarity more typically associated with the worlds of architecture and art. Timeless design is an absolute priority at Herr von Eden, as reinforced in the horizontal ‘8’ form resembling the mathematical symbol for infinity.  EDENEYES are available in a limited edition of 80 pieces across four colours.
MYKITA & Marios Schwab
This collection sees London designer Marios Schwab divide his silhouettes into three, a concept inspired by split page books. This results in what seems like an endless sequence of possible identities: unrelated and sometimes contradicting references are methodically mixed, matched and mismatched. The look is completed with industrial style sunglasses – a collaboration with MYKITA. Two models, HAMILTON & JANE were created for summer. The colour palette contrasts light and dark colours: playful v.s. hard-edged. Both models feature slightly mirrored lenses matching the lacquer colour of the frame.

MYKITA & Bernhard Willhelm
Bernhard Willhelm’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection plays with the symbol of the White Tiger, an animal that stands for courage, power, passion, change and royalty. Opposing elements such as black and multi-coloured tigers, patterns such as Yin and Yang circles are combined, creating a “spiritual camouflage” or so called “Trans”. 
Bernhard Willhelm teamed up with MYKITA to upload this “Trans” energy into three fully mirrored aviator style sunglasses models: FRANZ, SEPP and ALOIS. New colours are a bright “jungle” green, silver and brown, and carry over colour is the eternal gold.
MYKITA & Bernhard Willhelm FRANZ 24k Limited Edition
To celebrate the global success of model FRANZ, the metal aviator sunglasses stemming from the collaboration with fashion designer Bernhard Willhelm, MYKITA presents the FRANZ 24k equipped with flash mirrored golden sun lenses coated in 24-karat gold. A shape originally designed to 
accompany Willhelm’s winter collection inspired by the 1976 Olympics, FRANZ 24k comes in gold and black packaged in a specially designed  glasses case, as well as a hand numbered box and 
certificate of authenticity.
NO2
MYKITA’s COLLECTION NO2 plays heavily with frame forms, constantly performing variations in the thickness of the outer contour and the size of the lenses. The newly developed and patented, resilient screw-less hinge system is the result of a new technique using metal injection moulding. Putting your glasses on is now extremely comfortable and easy due to the practical flex-hinge effect. This is visible technology with a refined style – the quintessence of the MYKITA style and branding philosophy.
