Eyewear Brand MOSCOT Collaborates With Johan Lindeberg's BLK DNM on Special Edition Sunglass Collection

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Jul 14, 2011) - Renowned eyewear brand, MOSCOT, is pleased to present three new sunglasses as part of an exclusive collaboration with Swedish design veteran Johan Lindeberg and his new contemporary luxury brand, BLK DNM.

MOSCOT and BLK DNM, both native New York brands, have joined forces to produce a unique selection of unisex frames to compliment BLK DNM's current collection, just in time for summer.

The collaboration marks the marriage of old and new New York. "MOSCOT is a New York institution and we are a fledgling brand. MOSCOT lends their expertise and incredible craftsmanship and BLK DNM offers attitude -- a sophisticated yet gritty image which is how I see New York right now," Lindeberg remarks. MOSCOT president, Harvey Moscot adds, "By incorporating Johan's renowned design sensibility and combining it with our nearly 100 years of eyewear expertise and distinct aesthetic heritage, this collaboration captures the essence of the MOSCOT brand."

To mirror the minimalist aesthetic of the BLK DNM brand, each streamlined frame is named SUNGLASS 1, SUNGLASS 2, and SUNGLASS 3. A description of each frame is below:
