You know em, you love em - the stars of our worldwide marketing campaigns and featured in retail shops across the globe...our famed MOSCOT Mannequin Heads are back in production, right here at MOSCOT! Pretty cool, huh?! That's right! Each MOSCOT Mannequin head is handmade using decoupage at our MOSCOT Gallery & Music Space (aka…The MOSCOT Factory) right on Orchard Street in The Lower East Side! Originally each handmade decoupage head was comprised of historical images and photographs, vintage newspapers and magazine clippings, and historical Moscot family photographs, but with demand for our MOSCOT Mannequin Heads topping nearly 1000/year, we scanned our archive of historical images, newspapers, magazines and photographs to create our own custom newsprint, which we now use to hand decoupage each head. It takes one to two hours per head so you can imagine how busy our little bees are….If you are in the Lower East Side during the next few weeks, feel free to stop by the Orchard Street Gallery for a sneak peak of our Mannequin heads in the making!

MOSCOT Music hosted the ultimate (Unofficial) CMJ Party this past Saturday afternoon. Gracing our Orchard Street  stage were the Ambassadors, Dent May, and ARMS, who filled The MOSCOT Gallery & Music Space to capacity with fans and music industry folks alike. 

First up, the Ambassadors, who treated us to a super special acoustic set, which had the crowd on their feet, foot-stomping and hand-clapping in keeping with the beat — an awesome start to the afternoon!


Next up was Dent May from Mississippi, who brought their quirky blend of rock and electro indie pop, bouncing off amps with boundless energy! Their enthusiasm was addictive, as the crowd danced the afternoon away.


 

The final set featured ARMS (ex-Harlem Shakes), who closed the show with an intimate, stripped down performance of songs from their album, "Summer Skills" -- the perfect end to CMJ. Until next year!

Team MOSCOT is back from the City of Lights, and SILMO, the largest and most important show in eyewear! We were so proud and honored  to be a part of this amazing event — it was a trip like no other and we have our wonderful distributors and MOSCOT fans to thank!

We heard first-hand our LIVING HISTORY story told with such passion and joy in so many different languages – French, Mandarin, Italian, Korean...and the list goes on! -- and what MOSCOT meant to many of our fans and distributors. We truly felt the MOSCOT love. It was all very humbling and exciting.

Of the many MOSCOT fans with whom we met , here are a few of our favorite and most memorable SILMO moments! A BIG THANK YOU to all for an awesome SILMO…and we'll see you next year!

A huge thank you to LensLab, our South American/Latin American distributor partner for capturing the heart and spirit of MOSCOT at their recent MOSCOT Open House held in Mexico City. The event drew throngs of press - including Glamour, Men's Health, and Esquire, to name a few, excited to meet MOSCOT up close and in person. We are super excited to be rolling out MOSCOT across South America and Latin America and are super grateful to LensLab and fans helping to make it happen!

Under the beautiful Basilica Palladiana in Vicenza, Italy, fashion, music, and the world of optics were brought together for a night of mingling and DJ-spinning, all in honor of MOSCOT. Held on September 30th at Borsa Bar, The LEBA and The SHAYNA were poster stars and MOSCOT fans were hard to miss! Bravissimo!

GRAZIE MILLE to Flavio, a member of the MOSCOT family in Italy, for organizing this gorgeous event!

Brotherhood - that's what defines Brooklyn's Ambassadors, whose album Litost was released digitally this January. Officially starting in 2006, Sam Harris (vocals), his brother Casey (keyboard), and middle school friend Noah Feldshuh (guitar) had been playing together for years before Adam Levin (drums) joined.  Ambassadors recently performed at Lollapalooza and have toured the US and UK opening for acts such as LIGHTS, Breton and Local H.

Dent May writes and records homemade pop music in Mississippi, where he was born in 1985.  He began songwriting at age 12. The following year, he started a band called Flood, who covered Creed and 311 and sold homemade cassettes to classmates.  In high school, heavily influenced by Elvis Costello and The Cars, Dent fronted a power-pop band called The Rockwells.  Feeling like an outsider in Mississippi, he retreated to the Internet, where he spent his time soaking in pop music and culture from around the globe. After dropping out of NYU film school, his musical endeavors have included a debut LP of ukulele tunes on Paw Tracks, dance recordings under the Dent Sweat moniker, and a mysterious unfinished psych-country rock opera called Cowboy Maloney's Electric City.  

ARMS is what happens when the back burner bursts into flame. A one-time side project transformed into a full band, ARMS synthesizes years of bedroom experimentation and sharpens them into a single bright blade. Todd Goldstein has been writing and recording songs as ARMS since 2004 — although never quite like this. During his years playing guitar in NYC-based indie rockers Harlem Shakes, Todd quietly self-released his own music as ARMS, sneaking home-recording sessions in his rare spare time. Todd’s first album as ARMS – the luminous, ramshackle pop of Kids Aflame – was released on Melodic Records (UK) / Gigantic Music (US) in 2008 to enthusiastic Internet-praise. When Harlem Shakes disbanded in the summer of 2009, Goldstein expanded ARMS into a full band. The group immediately began writing the songs that
would become their debut album Summer Skills with producer Shane Stoneback (Vampire Weekend, Sleigh Bells, Cults). Summer Skills, ARMS’ true full-band debut, explodes Todd's previously lo-fi pop into a widescreen epic, telling a fractured tale of love under supernatural circumstances.
