Good Genes…UV Protected; The MOSCOT Spirit Collection Now in Sun

Brand New for Spring/Summer 2016

MILAN, ITALY--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2016) - The MOSCOT Spirit Collection shares all the same great DNA as the Company's MOSCOT Originals Collection except one thing: no sun. That changes today! MOSCOT announces The MOSCOT Spirit Collection, now available with CR-39 Sun Lenses with UVA and UVB protection.

Defined by downtown New York City sophistication and style, The MOSCOT Spirit Collection in Sun will debut in March with The ARTHUR, FRANKIE, PAT, and PETIE, four of the Company's most popular frame styles.

"The clean lines and designs of The MOSCOT Spirit Collection look appealing on all face shapes, which is what has made the Collection so popular," said Harvey Moscot, Fourth Generation Owner of MOSCOT. "Fans have been requesting their favorite MOSCOT Spirit styles in sun for years so we're very excited to launch the Collection in Sun, just in time for spring."

Utilizing the highest quality Italian acetate, signature vintage details, and real hardware for the sturdiest possible construct, The Spring 2016 MOSCOT Spirit Collection in Sun features backside anti-reflective coating, the Company's distinct color palette, and signature brass end caps. All future MOSCOT Spirit releases will be available in ophthalmic as well as sun. 

Introducing The Spring 2016 MOSCOT Spirit Collection in Sun:

This frame is based on The LEMTOSH silhouette, but with a slimmed down look, a thinner gauge, and a key hole bridge that's just a bit more business. They say not to mix business with pleasure, but we couldn't help ourselves.

The ARTHUR in Sun is available in size 50 eye and in colors Black, Charcoal, and Crystal with Grey Lenses, and in colors Blonde and Tobacco with Green Lenses.

With subtle clean lines, and a full-vue shape, The FRANKIE is the epitome of cool, just like our own Frank, a.k.a, Frankie, who has manned the MOSCOT counter for over 40 years and counting. An iconic frame for an iconic man…and a true MOSCOT character.

The FRANKIE in Sun is available in size 51 eye and in colors Black and Sage with Grey Lenses, Blonde and Mist/Tortoise with Green Lenses, and Classic Havana with Brown Lenses.

Similar to The BRANDON, the square-shaped PAT is good-looking, comfortable, and smart...only bigger…and taller…not that size matters.

The PAT in Sun is available in size 51 eye and in colors Black with Grey Lenses, and Brown Ash with Brown Lenses.

A clean-shaped cousin of The FRANKIE, The PETIE puts a modern spin on a midcentury classic…like Mad Men. Or a Manhattan. Or William Shatner.

The PETIE in Sun is available in 49 eye and in colors Black with Grey Lenses, and Dark Blonde with Green Lenses.

The ARTHUR, FRANKIE, PAT, and PETIE retails for $280 USD. The Spring 2016 MOSCOT Spirit Collection in Sun is available now in MOSCOT Shops, online at, and in specialty retail and optical shops worldwide.
