The two brands collaborate for a second release of the exclusive sunglasses
New York based sneakers and leather goods designer, Common Projects, has teamed up with MOSCOT, the traditional glasses manufacturer, for a second take on a previous collaboration. The result is the relaunched “Type 1” sunglasses. Originally released in 2008, the original collaboration was a much-coveted and hard to find release.
Designed by Common Projects and manufactured by MOSCOT, the square-framed sunglasses include a wide rim, with a deep matt black acetate finish. With a dark mineral glass and subtle black enamel finishing, the design of these sunglasses will stand the test of time.
Speaking about the reasoning behind the collaboration, Peter Poopat, the co-founder of Common Projects stated that “both brands are still fairly small, family-run operations. Moscot has been around for some time and the history that they preserve is what draws us to them. Their design is classic and emanates something from the past, but really fits in modern times.”
Each edition includes an exclusive gold individually numbers serial code stamped on the inside of the frame, much like you’d find on a Common Projects sneaker.
