Australia is doing MOSCOT proud yet again with more incredible window displays! Eye Gallery in Melbourne has created two beautiful windows that has passersby thinking MOSCOT has opened shops Down Under! Located in two of the hippest parts of town, the shops are sure to attract the well-heeled Melbourne crowd.
Yesterday, our dear friend, Terry Richardson, stopped by our Orchard Street Shop for an eye exam with the one and only Dr. Moscot, and loads of fun was had by all! We shot video and photos of the shop, our staff members (Frankie's building quite a name for himself!) and even some lucky shoppers who just so happened to be fans of Terry and MOSCOT!
The sun was shining Saturday for David Berkeley and Emily Greene's fans, who jam packed the MOSCOT Orchard Street Gallery for an afternoon of music and fun!
David Berkeley kicked the afternoon off with his deeply subtle vocals and beautiful arrangements, followed by Emily Greene's delightfully punchy songs!
All in all, a fantastic day!
Keep checking Facebook and moscot.com for more details on our next MOSCOT Music Saturday Session scheduled for July 9th.
If these chairs could talk, oh my...the stories they could tell! Grandpa Sol purchased these wooden peg and groove chairs (no nails!) in 1938 and they've been a part of our family ever since! Originally purchased for our first shop on Rivington Street, the chairs moved with us to our Orchard Street shop in 1950, and have been a rest spot for our beloved fans ever since! Two have even made the trip across the pond for MOSCOT events in Europe. They flew first class of course.
One of the top optical shops in Milano, Ottica Bergomi, have done MOSCOT proud with their spectacular window display! Just like MOSCOT, Ottica Bergomi has a long, colorful history that began in Venice in 1948 with Nonno Agostino (like our Grandpa Sol). Fast forward to the present and Ottica Bergomi has stores all across Italy and sells to some of the most fashionable people in the world! Congratulazioni!
