NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - Dec 7, 2011) - MOSCOT, the New York City eyewear institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear, today announces an expansion of their partnership with Mexican distributor, Independent Eyeware, to bring The MOSCOT Originals, MOSCOT Originals Sun, and MOSCOT Spirit Collections to South America.

Building on the incredible success Independent Eyeware has had with MOSCOT in Mexico, and the enthusiasm for the brand in the region, Independent Eyeware will now have exclusive distribution rights for MOSCOT in select countries. Starting in January 2012 The MOSCOT Collections will be available in the best stores throughout Argentina, Brazil, Chile, and Colombia.

"MOSCOT has been carefully partnering with retail locations across the globe over the past several years, and with our almost instant popularity in Mexico, expanding to South America was the perfect next step for the MOSCOT brand," said Co-President Wendy Simmons. "We're so excited to bring the MOSCOT experience to this region of the world."

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 eyewear retains 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 eyewear or sunglasses, with or without a prescription, in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes.

The MOSCOT Spirit Collection combines the Company's nearly 100 years of eyewear expertise with its downtown New York City heritage to create clean, comfortable, wearable frames. The Collection honors the MOSCOT Originals by reinterpreting classic design elements that look great on all face shapes and sizes. The Collection is available as ophthalmic eyewear or sunglasses, with or without a prescription, in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes, and features the Company's branded "M" on the temple tips.

Both Collections are available as ophthalmic frames or sunglasses, with or without a prescription, in a variety of frame and lens color combinations. For more information on new and existing styles, and a complete list of shops selling MOSCOT eyewear, please visit moscot.com.
