FAMED EYEWEAR PURVEYOUR MOSCOT ANNOUNCES THE AVAILABLITY OF THE MOSCOT ORIGINALS COLLECTION IN THE NETHERLANDS
- The MOSCOT Originals Collection from venerable New York City institution and famed eyewear purveyor, MOSCOT, is now available in a host of retail and specialty optical shops across the Netherlands, making it easier than ever for MOSCOT fans to try on and purchase the highly coveted frames.
The MOSCOT Originals Collection, based on styles from the MOSCOT archives from 1930-1970, celebrates the classic good looks and timeless design born in decades past. The frames retain the authenticity of the original frame styles including real glass lenses in the sunglasses, traditional hardware, and lens colors that precisely duplicate the true old school colors first fabricated by the company in the 1940s.The faithfully reproduced collection is available as ophthalmic frames or sunglasses, with or without a prescription, in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes.
The regularly evolving collection now includes twelve fabulous styles in a variety of frame and lens color combinations including:
Named for Grandma Sylvia, wife of Sol Moscot, who wore these Harlequin-shaped glasses with aplomb. A born actress (in her mind at least), Sylvia called herself “Ginger” after her favorite Hollywood actress and never left home without these large, chunky frames to shield her from adoring fans. Frames feature a five-barrel hinge and two star rivets on either side — befitting of the star you’ll look like wearing them.
Named after the man who started it all…Great Grandpa Hyman. This Nebb meets Vilda number, with a few hardware embellishments thrown in, has a tad less attitude, but is definitely no wallflower. Frames feature a five-barrel hinge, saddle bridge, and three dot rivets on both front temples.
This rounder, nerdier number has served as the calling card for generations of creative, thoughtful, free-spirited intellectuals and artistés — from Buddy Holly to Truman Capote to Johnny Depp. Frames feature exposed hardware, diamond shaped rivets, and a key-hole bridge.
This frame is named after Sol’s sister, Gladys Moscot, a wanderlust traveler who left New York’s Lower East Side for a life of drinking Cuba Libres and smoking Cohibas in Havana. The frame is hot, sexy and fresh — feminine yet bold, with unique lines and curves that make a provocative statement that’s still subtle with a come-hither look. Like a just barely there French accent, or a wisp of a hair that keeps falling across her face. Think Bridgette Bardot, Sophia Loren, or Kate Winslet. This frame features a hinge riveted to both frame front and temples.
The round, full-view shape, eponymously named after a family uncle is clean, smart and fastidious. First introduced in the 1930's, the frame with the longest lineage is sleek and understated just like the powerful outsiders who made the frames famous — think Andy Warhol, John Lennon, Harry Truman and Gandhi, to name a few. Frames feature exposed hardware and key-hole bridge.
By far the most popular frame in The Originals Collection, this frame (sunglasses or ophthalmic) has and will continue to stand the test of time. With it’s chunky, rectangular Henry Kissinger-esque style, The Nebb is raw, aggressive and in your face — just like a real New Yorker. Frames feature two dot rivets on front and temples, five-barrel hinge, and saddle bridge.
The NEBB SE
The Nebb Special Edition is available in four eye-catching colors — Peacock, Orchid, Golden Olive and Cerulean — that were inspired by fashion designer, Chris Benz. Just like the Nebb, these frames feature two dot rivets on front and temples, five-barrel hinge, and saddle bridge.
Named for our friend and long time MOSCOT customer, actor Justin Theroux, this frame is our boldest frame ever — not for the timid! Based on a vintage French frame from the 1960's that Justin wore for the film, Mulholland Drive, these frames are an exact replica — right down to the extra thick temples, uniquely shaped hardware, hinge plate, five-barrel hinge, bridge and end piece. The first edition Theroux’s were limited to 300 pieces, with each frame laser numbered for authenticity.
Pure FDR style that enters the room before you do. Worn by strong, industrial, bold men who know how to keep it cool. Frames feature three dot rivets on front and temples, five-barrel hinge, and saddle bridge.
You'll make a statement (political or otherwise!) with these classic frames that are reminiscent of Malcolm X. This pair blends plastic and metal so there is a little something for everyone. Frames feature exposed hardware and American style nose pads.
Cary Grant meets Woody Allen for a polished, clean, refined look, with bold color and zero exposed hardware. Sol would be proud.
Based on a classic 1940’s fighter pilot frame, The Zulu is named for our Uncle Zulu Pushkin (yes, that’s his real name), our rather unconventional uncle who made his living as a runner for a famed New York bookie back in the day. Frames features polarized G15 lenses with antireflective coating.
