Team MOSCOT is back in NYC, after a successful stint in Paris for SILMO 2014…and we're back hitting the ground running!
We took the "Spirit" and history of New York City with us to the City of Lights, to help kick off our two newest Collections — The Fall 2014 MOSCOT Spirit Collection, featuring six newly designed styles; and The Fall 2014 MOSCOT Originals Collection, featuring four quintessential shapes from the 1930s, 40s, 50s, and 60s — dug up from the Moscot family archives! Check out our booth pictures below!
And what better way to celebrate not one, but TWO new Collection launches, than with a little bubbly! Optical shop and MOSCOT stockist, L'Annexe in Il St. Louis on the Seine, and in the heart of Paris, graciously hosted a lovely evening of cocktails, while also decking out their entire shop with MOSCOT! Fantastique!
As always, we love seeing all of our awesome distribution partners from far and wide, and meeting with the international press, because we wouldn't be here without everyone involved…especially our fans! Special thanks to Baumvision Europe for another memorable show, and to L'Annexe for kicking off the celebration for us!See you again soon, SILMO, bientôt!
With sleek silhouettes, and clean, sharp designs, The Fall 2014 MOSCOT Spirit Collection is the true embodiment of the MOSCOT "Spirit." Whether for work or play, The ALEX, BREE, CAMI, COURTNEY, ROBIN, and STEVIE are the epitome of effortlessly chic, downtown New York City cool.
The newly designed Fall 2014 MOSCOT Spirit Collection is perfect for fall, with the addition of three new colors, Blue Ink, Brown Ale, and Green Moss. Made from the same great DNA as The MOSCOT Originals Collection including the highest quality acetate, period details, and real hardware to ensure the sturdiest possible construction, we're positive you'll find the Spirit of New York in each of our newest six frames:
Similar in shape to The HYMAN, but with a sleeker silhouette, The ALEX is minimalistic, and easy-to-wear…just like your favorite T-Shirt. Only no wash and dry required. Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, a real five barrel hinge, and signature end caps.
The BREE has been known to induce sweaty palms, light-headedness, and heart palpitations…otherwise known as love at first sight. Literally, in this case. Made from combination metal and acetate frame, with grooved metal accents inlaid on the front and temples, Silicon nose pads, a grooved metal bridge, a real five barrel hinge, and signature end caps.
Looking for a clean, sharp, handsome frame with a contemporary edge? Dr. Moscot has you covered; The CAMI is just what the doctor ordered. Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, a real five barrel hinge, and signature end caps.
With soft edges, and clean lines, The COURTNEY is dapper and dignified on men, sumptuous and stately on women…it’s bloody awesome, no matter which side of the Pond you’re on. Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a key hole bridge, a real five barrel hinge, and signature end caps.
The ROBIN is overflowing with good looks, and charm, which makes it the perfect vehicle (err…frame) for Gotham City. Rounding off the cheeks, and riding the brow, The ROBIN instills confidence and courage…as the perfect sidekick should. Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, a real five barrel hinge, and signature end caps.
You’ll fall head over heels for this square-shaped beauty! With intricate details, and style for miles, The STEVIE will make your heart skip a beat…or two, or three… Made with grooved metal accents inlaid on the front and temples, Silicon nose pads, a grooved metal bridge, a real five barrel hinge, and signature end caps.
Experience the Spirit of New York in MOSCOT Shops, online at moscot.com, and soon to be available in specialty retail and optical shops worldwide!
For our brand spanking new MOSCOT Originals frames, we pay homage to Magritte's "The Treachery of Images," drawing inspiration from classic cigar wrappers, and hand drawn illustrations of our four newest styles! Classic, timeless, and a celebration of New York…this is The Fall 2014 MOSCOT Originals Collection:
The AVRAM was born a humble medical device, distributed to the needy as part of Lyndon B. Johnson's famous social reform Revenue Act of 1964. Fifty plus years later, The AVRAM returns, a proud prescription for those in need of a fashion fix.
Ezra ran the busiest fruit stand in the Essex Street Market, but that didn’t stop his daily visits to our Grandpa Sol to trade crisp Granny Smith Apples for the pair of eyeglasses he coveted. It took quite a few bushels for Ezra to pay for these classic, WWII era spectacles, but eventually he took care of his debt, while simultaneously provingthat an apple a day does not, in all cases, keep the doctor away…
If you love The LEMTOSH, with its keyhole bridge, and diamond-shaped rivets, but want something just a little bit bigger and bolder, The GELT is right on the money. Trust us. (Look it up.)
The big, bold, and beautiful, square-shaped YONA is based on the classic 1950s 3D movie theatre glasses, and is built for your viewing pleasure – whether you’re looking through them…or at them.
Get a jump on fall, and check out The Fall 2014 MOSCOT Originals Collection in MOSCOT Shops, online at moscot.com, and soon to be available in specialty retail and optical shops worldwide!
With a line out the door, our MOSCOT Orchard Street Gallery & Music Space buzzed with excitement for LOLO last night!
And when she hit the stage…wow! We were seriously blown away by her giant gorgeous voice, and incredible energy, which had the entire crowd rocking along with her. Her 45-minute set, which included a surprise cover of Beyonce's "Halo," and her hit single, "Hit and Run," left us all – if possible – even bigger fans that we were already. Check out LOLO in our fan pics below! And stay tuned for a video from last night's show, posting here next week!
A HUGE thank you to LOLO, and Creative Artists Agency, for an awesome evening of great music!

But be careful…MOSCOT MOOLAH is just like cash…if you lose it, you lose. On the flip side, MOSCOT MOOLAH is transferrable, so if you find some, you win! But seriously, MOSCOT MOOLAH is not replaceable, and if you want to give yours to a friend, we think that's swell. After all, who doesn't like a little MOOLAH?
