Check out these incredible images taken by, photographer, Brian Rose, of the MOSCOT shop on Orchard Street in 1980 and again in 2011, from his book, Time and Space! Way back when in 1980, Ed Koch was the Mayor of NYC and MOSCOT had just one shop on the LES. Now in 2011, Michael Bloomberg is the Mayor and MOSCOT is a global lifestyle brand, sold at over 400 retailers worldwide.
It's amazing to see how much has changed in the past 30 years in NYC and at MOSCOT, and...how much has stayed the same! (we still see guys on skateboards and headphones in the LES daily!)
We're so excited and humbled by all of the attention The TERRY has received since launching just last week! A HUGE thanks to all of our amazing blogging friends.

Introducing Three New MOSCOT Spirit Collection Styles: The AVERY, CHARLA, and TAYLOR,
Plus Brand New Colors for Existing Spirit Styles.
Say adios to Old Man Winter with three vibrant new styles from the MOSCOT Spirit Collection that will have flowers blooming and birds singing. MOSCOT introduces The AVERY, CHARLA, and TAYLOR, the newest additions to The MOSCOT Spirit Collection.
The AVERY – A classic, rounded silhouette, The AVERY is for the super smart professor who happens to be hot enough that he distracts from his own lecture. Made from acetate, The AVERY features a five barrel hinge, saddle bridge, two dot rivets on the temple, and an oversized temple tip. Available in Grey and Tortoise.

The CHARLA – This delicate cat eye frame is for the woman who’s equally comfortable scouring the flea market for vintage couture as she is scouring the skies for Cassiopeia. Made from acetate, The CHARLA features a five barrel hinge, two dot rivets on the temples, and a saddle bridge. Available in Matte Black and Olive Horn.

The TAYLOR – This classic full-vu shaped frame is perfect for taking in the scenery whether you’re downtown, uptown, cross-town or all around town. Sleek, light and narrow, The TAYLOR is made from acetate and features a keyhole bridge, slim temples, and five barrel hinge. Available in Black and Tortoise.

Additionally, The EMILE, a chunky yet tailored style, is now available in Black Crystal and Tortoise. The sleek, sophisticated, and hardware free, LYNNIE, is now available in Black Crystal and Tortoise, and The HENRY, based on The LEMTOSH but with a slimmed down look, is available in Matte Black with new, all acetate temples.

Big THANKS to our friends at GQ for this awesome post on their blog about the amazing collaboration between MOSCOT and photographer, Terry Richardson. The limited edition frame was launched yesterday and we're psyched for this awesome coverage. Here's what they had to say about The TERRY: As it's impossible for you to have forgot, many of our favorite GQ shoots — Megan Fox eating this nice cherry, the Glee kids looking grown-up, Paul Rudd wearing hair curlers — have been shot by Terry Richardson, the infamously bespectacled photographer. Made in collaboration with the man himself, Moscot's The TERRY replicates the same bold, curved, and key hole bridge-equipped pair worn by Richardson at every shoot—and, as evidenced by the exclusive first look above, Dr. Moscot, too. There's only 350 available, so act fast.
