The ZEV – Inspired by the British Public Health Services’ “Poor Boy” Spectacles of the 1960s, The ZEV is named for Grandpa Sol’s cousin, and neighborhood lawyer, Zeyfer Braunstein (or Zev for short), who wore this clever, dapper frame (British accent included) when he needed to put his best face forward, helping neighbors whose reputations were on the line, get off the hook.

The KLEYN – Inspired by 1860s post-Civil war era spectacles, The KLEYN is named for Great Grandpa Hyman's revered tutor, Professor Seymour Klein, who taught English to newly arrived immigrants living in the hood. Never one to quibble over trivial concerns, Professor Klein settled for ProfessorKleyn, when his students consistently failed to master the "I before E rule."
The JACOB – The JACOB perfectly recreates the Air Force Pilot Sunglass first made famous in the 1940s. There’s a reason this easy to wear, casual, good-looking frame’s popularity has not just endured, but soared over the decades — it makes everyone look hot. Really hot. We promise.
The EISEN – The EISEN is named for Joseph Eisenhower (Eisen to his friends), the neighborhood banker, who spent his days counting shekels and his nights tossing dice. As the MOSCOT trusted banker, it was a (very) good thing Eisen kept these activities mutually exclusive…since under the mattress is no place for the Company till.
Hot off our Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals launch, our South Korean distribution partner, CED, hosted a MOSCOT trunk show in Busan, Korea, featuring our newest Collection…and some old friends too!
CED never fails to wow us with their incredible creativity! LOVE!
A BIG 감사합니다 to CED, and to all of our Korean retailers who came out to see our new Spring 2013 Collection!
Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals CollectionThe DOV – Dr. Louis Rosenfeld, of the Lower East Side Rosenfelds, earned his medical degree in Vienna, but returned home to give back to his neighbors, dispensing medical care for two dollars a pop. He was never fond of his neighborhood appellation, “Two Dollar Lou,” so he was greatly relieved when Great Grandpa Hyman anointed him “Little Dov” instead. This one’s for you, Doc.

The BELLA – The female version of The YUKEL, The BELLA is named for Great Grandma Leba, whose stunning good looks compelled admirers young and old to sing out “Bella” whenever she walked (ok, shimmied...) down Delancey Street. Even we’ve fallen under her spell...two of our most beautiful frames are named for her!
Winter blues no more! In honor of our newest Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals Collection launch, we threw a party!
Friends, press, distribution partners (far and wide), and long time MOSCOT customers gathered with us at the Mark Miller Gallery, in The Lower East Side, for an evening of cocktails (named especially after our brand spanking new frames!) and nibbles, to celebrate our Collection launch in New York City! Whoop!
With vinyl spinning Frank Sinatra, Aretha Franklin, and old-school tunes, we were super excited to share our newest Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals Collection of classic, timeless styles…by unveiling MOSCOT works of art!
A HUGE THANK YOU to all those who came out — some of whom made it all the way from Down Under and even cross-country! A BIG thank you to our caterer, Cheryl Smith, of Cheryl's Global Soul and to Mark Miller for housing our MOSCOT artwork until the end of the month. Stop on by and take a look-see at these larger-than-life photos by our very own, Co-President, Wendy Simmons!
Who loves January now?! WE DO!
