MOSCOT ADDS EIGHT NEW STYLES TO THE MOSCOT ORIGINALS COLLECTION
Paris, FRANCE, SILMO, Booth F/106 Hall 5a, September 29, 2011 – MOSCOT, a New York City eyewear institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear, today announced eight new MOSCOT Originals. The largest new release of MOSCOT Originals to date, each style has been meticulously constructed to precisely replicate designs from the MOSCOT archives from the past (nearly) 100 years. Each new style embodies the perfect blend of unparalleled quality craftsmanship, the authentic MOSCOT downtown New York City heritage and aesthetic, a bit of whimsy and a lot of love.
Introducing The BISSLE, BUMMI, GRUNYA, IPISH, MECKIE, MENSCH, TUMMEL, and The ZOLMAN:
The BISSLE – Based on Captain America’s spectacles from the 1960s, with a 30% blue tinted lens for good measure, The BISSLE will inspire you to hop on your bike (be it a Harley or otherwise) and hit the open road. Chaps not included. Available in Black with 30% blue tinted lenses.
The BUMMI – Think LEMTOSH, but with a little more cat eye and made smaller for folks who don’t have gigantic heads (or rather, folks who have slightly smaller heads). Available in Black, Grey Fade, and Tortoise.
The GRUNYA – Can’t decide between The NEBB, LEMTOSH, and MILTZEN? Stop trying. The GRUNYA is an amalgamation of all three and simply put, it rocks. Available in Black and Tortoise.
The IPISH – The super cool, ultra rectangular, in-your-face, IPISH, with a slanted bevel across the top, is large and in charge. Worn by intellectuals, mathematicians, and spooks in the 1950s, these frames are perfect for those of you with a bit larger noggin — err, brain. Available in Black.
The MECKIE – Who says real men can’t wear a cat eye? The MECKIE busts down the cat eye gender barrier with an ever-so-slight upsweep. Freedom and equality for all...at long last. (For women too, of course.) Available in Black and Tortoise.
The MENSCH – The noble, dignified, decorous MENSCH is... well, a mensch. With its classic oval shape and timeless design, the refined and polished MENSCH is a frame for the ages, or Superman. Available in Black.
The TUMMEL – This frame is so good looking, you’ll create a commotion whenever and wherever you wear it. But fear not, The TUMMEL’s thick gauge, angled lines and overall heft are built to withstand the pandemonium of adoring fans. Available in Black and Tortoise.
The ZOLMAN – It doesn’t get any more cool and classic than this — the perfectly round ZOLMAN is Grandpa Sol’s frame. Yes, that Grandpa Sol. And yes, that frame from the photo of him sitting in his vintage Ford on Rivington Street, circa 1934. As we said, cool and classic. Fun fact: Zolman was Sol’s name on his birth certificate. Available in Black, Flesh, and Tortoise.
