MOSCOT HITS THE CATWALK FOR MERCEDES-BENZ NEW YORK FASHION WEEK
NEW YORK, February 5, 2013 – MOSCOT, a New York City institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear — The MOSCOT Originals, MOSCOT Spirit, and MOSCOT Sun Collections — will strut its stuff down the Mercedes-Benz New York Fashion Week Fall runways thanks to a phalanx of exciting and talented New York City-based designers: David Hart, Erin Barr, Ruffian, and Todd Snyder.
When David Hart was designing his Fall 2013 Collection, he drew inspiration from spies of the late 1950s and early 1960s. Hart noted that the MOSCOT classic frames with tinted lenses were just as important as the clothing, and added the finishing touch to his looks.
Inspired by the Northern woods in her native Wisconsin, MOSCOT is excited to work with Erin Barr for a second season. “Both authentic and fashion-forward, you will see our brands working together to create this great world full of ambiance, sending a strong and confident woman down the runway,” said Barr.
To match the rich color silks of its Fall 2013 Collection, the established and critically acclaimed label, Ruffian, developed custom-dyed lenses for The EISEN, a new style from the Spring 2013 MOSCOT Originals Collection. “The Lower East Side was a key inspiration for our Collection and we are particularly excited that both of our brands share a love for authenticity and history,” said designers, Brian Wolk and Claude Morais.
2012 CFDA Fashion Awards Nominee, Todd Snyder said, “MOSCOT frames are the perfect compliment to our Collection. It infuses an unmistakably refined, downtown aesthetic to our modern sensibility.”
