As it prepares for to turn 100 years old next year, the New York-based Moscot eyewear company has never been more in touch with its past. In fact, producing models that became popular decades ago has become a key part of the brand's strategy for future growth. Inspired by Moscot styles produced between 1930 and 1970, the Moscot Originals Collection includes 36 frames with vintage appeal. The collection runs the gamut from the Nebb, with its studiously thick frame, to the round Miltzen (picture), which is a slightly preppier take, to the Myles, which offers the myopic a chance to look like seventies rock stars. The collection has proven so successful, that Moscot is digging deeper into its archive. This march, the company released glasses with cable temples that wrap around the ear, a style popularized during the Great Depression. [$240;]
