NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 02/27/14 -- MOSCOT, a New York City institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear -- The MOSCOT Originals, MOSCOT Spirit, and MOSCOT Sun Collections -- is pumped up for summer and so is its 2014 MOSCOT Sun Collection!
MOSCOT's taken four of their favorite MOSCOT Originals -- The GRUNYA, LEMTOSH, NEBB, and SHAYNA -- and seriously pumped them up to create The GOVERNOR, RANDALL, ELLIS, and STATEN just in time for summer.
Bolder and thicker than their MOSCOT Originals counterparts (no messing with the faithfully reproduced MOSCOT Originals!), The ELLIS, GOVERNOR, RANDALL, and STATEN are infused with rich custom colors, and coordinating gradient color lenses for a look that's provocative, edgy, formidable, sexy, and just plain fun. Just like summer!
The 2014 MOSCOT Sun Collection includes:
The ELLIS - Chunky, aggressive, and impossible to miss, The ELLIS is based on The NEBB, just as raw, and even more attention grabbing. With its rectangular shape carved from block acetate, The ELLIS has summer written all over it. Available in Chameleon, Leopard, Pumpkin, and Sapphire, with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, and a real five barrel hinge.
The GOVERNOR - A striking and hefty homage to The GRUNYA, The GOVERNOR is impresses with its oversized and dramatic shape. Complete with three dot rivets on the front and temples, a key hole bridge, and a real seven barrel hinge, available in Chameleon, Leopard, Pumpkin, and Sapphire.
The RANDALL - True to form, The RANDALL is a bulked up, tricked out, playful version of the LEMTOSH you are sure to love. Just like its progenitor, The RANDALL boasts diamond shaped rivets on the front and temples, a key hold bridge, and a real five barrel hinge, and is available in Chameleon, Leopard, Pumpkin, and Sapphire.
The STATEN - SHAYNA shaped, but oversized for a look that is overflowing in glamour and style. Available in Chameleon, Leopard, Pumpkin and Sapphire, this spirited and whimsical frame is made from hefty block acetate with two dot rivets on the front and temples, a saddle bridge, and a real five barrel hinge.
