Common Projects x Moscot Bring Back the Popular TYPE ONE Sunglasses
Back in 2009, 100-year-old New York City eyewear brand Moscot and fashion shoe label Common Projects teamed up to release the TYPE ONE Sunglasses. These limited-edition shades sold out in less than one week. They were popular among stars including hip hop sensation Drake who was photographed wearing the sunglasses at the star-studded OVO festival shortly after they were released.
Now, eight years later, Moscot and Common Projects have decided to further elevate their collaboration by joining forces to relaunch the popular TYPE ONE sunglasses. The newest version is made from a matte black Italian acetate frame. This frame is a classic and the perfect example of Common Projects minimalistic design philosophy.
A high-gloss gold temple print further distinguishes the TYPE ONE sunglasses from other shades. To keep the sun from wreaking havoc on your eyes, the lenses are tinted and constructed with a special G15 glass that provides excellent UVB and UVA protection. Each pair features an individual gold-stamped serial number. A high-quality leather case and co-branded chamois cleaning wipe are included with the sunglasses.
Just like in 2009, these sunglasses will be available in just limited quantities—only 500 pairs will be sold. They will also likely run out very quickly so you best hurry if you want to snag a pair.
Fortunately, this will not be the last collaboration between the two companies. Common Projects and Moscot will be dropping another collab in September, but there is no word yet on what that might be.
