Moscot Originals - Est. 1915

We are proud to announce that KIN will now be carrying Moscot Eyewear in store. As promised, we're always looking out for the best and most sought after products out there. We're quite particular on being ahead of the curve in offering them to you. We're pretty sure all of you are noticing our efforts thus far.

Despite being around for quite some time already, Moscot's recently been getting a lot of much-deserved publicity from customers and media alike. Their current collection is absolutely on point which means that you'll most definitely be hearing a lot more about them very soon.

The vintage-inspired MOSCOT Originals collection is a nod to the classic looks of decades past.

The newly-made frames are based on styles from the MOSCOT archives from the 1930's, 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's, retaining all of the authenticity of the original frame style right down to real glass lenses in their sunglasses, traditional hardware, and lens colors that precisely duplicate the true old school colors first fabricated by the company in the 1940's. The faithfully reproduced collection, is available as eyeglasses or sunglasses, with or without a prescription, in a variety of frame and lens color combinations and sizes.

Fun fact of the day: I used to live right around the corner from their 14th Street location in New York City circa 2005. I walked past their space every day and never actually walked into the store. Had I been a bit more curious, we'd have probably been able to enjoy Moscot Eyewear as early as our first day in business.

Everyone's had something to say about Moscot; Telegraph UK has an interesting insight. So does Slamxhype and Hypebeast. Selectism quotes Secret Forts in this piece.

Smith + Butler
Colette Paris
Studiohomme Paris
