Summer’s not that far away, is it? IS IT?! Let’s just all agree that it isn’t and let’s move on, alright? So, seeing as summer’s not that far away, I thought I’d let you in on a sweet little set of sunglasses that we’ve got our eyes on. From one of our favourite New York based ophthalmic designers, MOSCOT, comes the new Spring/Summer 2016 range, and they’re some pretty squanchy shades.
Previously available only with prescription lenses, MOSCOT have decided to update their Spirit Collection to include a sun range. And it’s about goddamned time. Bringing that old school cool of down town New York to your face. In the sunshine. You just gotta get to know. If you were confused about how they came up with such an idea, here’s a little peak behind the scenes:
So what’s the new MOSCOT Spring/Summer 2016 range boasting?
That whole superfly range of MOSCOT’s Spirit Collection has been transmogrified, which means that this new collection features four sharp shades to fit all face shapes. Want to know what they are?…
MOSCOT’s play on mixing business with pleasure, these low-key sunglasses are sharp yet smooth. The sort you could wear to the office or the beach. A bit of a throwback, they’re tidy glasses for the dapper chap. They come in black, charcoal and crystal with grey lenses, and blonde and tobacco with green lenses for those who want to mix it up.
Named after the fella whose been manning the MOSCOT counter in NYC for 40 years, these are damn cool frames. A bit more hip than the Arthur, they’re fun and frolics rather than workaholic. Wearing these sunglasses, you’ll want to be reclined in an inflatable tube, in an open shirt drinking something sweet whilst the sun beats down on your skin. Coming in a variety of colour combinations including black, sage, blonde and classic Havana, I wanna get my mitts on the Tortoise Mist (above).
Coming in black and brown The Pat are fat frames. Sitting lazy, laid back catching UV rays, I think these sunnies go particularly well with a beer and a veranda overlooking somewhere gorgeous. But then what wouldn’t?
These are the frames for those who want to go a touch more vogue. Bringing those mid-century classic frames to the modern day, they’re the kind of sunglasses you’d find Jack Kerouac’s subterraneans wearing whilst they smoked cigarettes by a 1947 Cadillac. Coming in black with grey lenses, you can trip yourself out with dark blonde with green if you so choose.
