MOSCOT Launches Eight New Styles With the Launch of Its Fall/Winter 2016 Collection

PARIS, FRANCE--(Marketwired - Sep 22, 2016) -  New York City eyewear institution, MOSCOT, today announces the launch of its Fall/Winter 2016 Collection, which includes five new MOSCOT Originals and three new MOSCOT Spirits.

The BRUDE, GROYSE, KIBITS, KLUG, and SCHLEP, constructed entirely from metal, or a combination of metal/acetate, comprise the new MOSCOT Originals release, and The NOAH, TESS, and TRAVIS -- MOSCOT's newest Spirits -- are made from acetate. Together, the Fall/Winter 2016 Collection features clean, simple silhouettes that are as diverse in shape and style, as they are unmistakably MOSCOT in their timeless design.

Introducing The Fall 2016 MOSCOT Originals Collection:

The BRUDE: Like The LEMTOSH, this "brother" from another mother, The BRUDE, shares its same round-square shape, and easy good looks, but is made from a metal acetate combination, and is rivet-free. First seen on brudes, dudes, and sisters in the 1960s, The BRUDE is subtly striking, and features detailed engraving on its bridge and temples.

Combination metal acetate frame with no exposed hardware on the frame front, detailed metal skiving on the bridge and temples, and real three barrel hinges. Sunglasses have real glass lenses.

Available in Black/Silver and Burnt Tortoise/Gold, in sizes 48 and 51. Sunglasses only available in size 51, in Black/Silver with G-15 Lenses, and Burnt Tortoise/Gold with Cosmitan Brown Lenses.

The GROYSE: We named this frame The GROYSE because it's big. Big on style, big on character, and just plain big. Big, big, big. With its soft round shape, raw gold color, and a bridge that sits high, and features retro, flat beveled edges, The GROYSE is 1970s all the way. Can you dig?

Made from metal with flat beveled edges on the bridge, Silicon nose pads, and real three barrel hinges. Sunglasses have real glass lenses.

Available in Raw Gold, in size 51. Sunglasses are available in Raw Gold with Cosmitan Brown Lenses.

The KIBITS: Orchard Street resident and neighbor to Great Grandpa Hyman, Walter Greenbaum was what we used to call a real "kibitser" -- an eccentric fellow who liked to talk... all the time... to anyone within earshot... and even to those who weren't listening. Fortunately for Walter, Hyman was all ears. In honor of our late kibitser, we give you, The KIBITS.

Made from metal featuring detailed filigree, and Silicon nose pads. Sunglasses have real glass lenses.

Available in Gold, Silver, and Tortoise/Antique Gold, in sizes 49 and 51. Sunglasses only available in size 51, in Gold with G-15 Lenses, and Silver with Calibar Green Lenses.

The KLUG: With detailed skiving on its bridge and temples, and a sophisticated, rectangular design, you'd be smart to don the metal acetate KLUG, and bonus... you'll look smarter wearing it too. 

Combination metal acetate frame with no exposed hardware on the frame front, detailed metal skiving on the bridge and temples, and real three barrel hinges. Sunglasses have real glass lenses.

Available in Black/Silver and Burnt Tortoise/Gold, in sizes 49 and 52. Sunglasses only available in size 52, in Black/Silver with G-15 Lenses, and Burnt Tortoise/Gold with Cosmitan Brown Lenses.

The SCHLEP: With its big square shape, added height, and gold Clip-on with top bar, The SCHLEP is so good looking, and looks so hot on, people will be lining up to schlep your sh... stuff.

Combination metal acetate frame with square-shaped, Windsor Rim-inspired eyewire, acetate temples, and Silicon nose pads. Sunglasses have real glass lenses, and Gold Clip-on available in sizes 50 and 53.

Available in Black/Gunmetal, Blonde/Gold, and Tortoise/Gold, in sizes 50 and 53. Sunglasses available in Black/Gunmetal with G-15 Lenses, in Blonde/Gold with G-15 Lenses, and Tortoise/Gold with G-15 Lenses.

Introducing The Fall 2016 MOSCOT Spirit Collection:

The NOAH: The NOAH is the full package: dependable, can be dressed up or down, and with its soft curves and flattering shape, The NOAH is easy on the eyes to boot. Grab'em while you can, ladies, and gents. 

Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, real three barrel hinges, and signature end caps.

Available in Black, Dark Blonde, and Mist in sizes 47 and 50. Sunglasses only available in size 50, in Black with Grey Lenses, and Mist with Green Lenses.

The TESS: Say so long to the cat-eye you've known, and hello to the cat-eye you've coveted. With its subtle lift and tailored sophistication, The TESS radiates a natural, understated sexiness that will boost your confidence and give you a little extra pep in your (high-heeled) step. 

Made from acetate with two dot rivets, a saddle bridge, real five barrel hinges, and signature end caps.

Available in Brown Ash, Classic Havana, and Olive/Tortoise in size 52. Sunglasses only available in Classic Havana with Brown Lenses.

The TRAVIS: Similar to The ZAYDE, The TRAVIS is tall, thin, square, and commanding, and really makes a statement... a fashion statement. And it likes its martinis shaken, not stirred, in case you're wondering.

Made from acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, real five barrel hinges, and signature end caps.

Available in Black, Dark Blonde, and Sage in sizes 50 and 53. Sunglasses only available in size 53, in Black with Grey Lenses, and Dark Blonde with Green Lenses.
