Nothing is cooler than a rock star with a pair of stylish shades, right? What's cooler are shades that donate a portion of the proceeds to charity.
MOSCOT, a New York City institution renowned worldwide for its iconic eyewear, is proud to announce a collaboration with vocal powerhouse and guitarist -- Myles Kennedy of Alter Bridge. The collaboration features the launch of new sunglasses, The MYLES, with proceeds of the frame being donated to The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation. A live acoustic performance by Myles will take place on September 12, 2013 at The MOSCOT Gallery and Music Space, inside its Orchard Street Shop, to debut the frame and to raise money for the Foundation.
The MYLES is a classic and sophisticated aviator shape consistent with Myles Kennedy's aesthetic and influence. The MYLES frame is derived from Myles' favorite MOSCOT Original, The SECHEL, but incorporates design elements from the '60s and '70s to reflect his laid back, rock and roll style.
The MYLES is available in Matte Black/Grey and Olive/Black, in two sizes. The frame will make its official debut on September 12, during the acoustic performance, followed by general availability in shops worldwide October 2013.
"I am thrilled to announce that my friends at MOSCOT eyewear and I have collaborated on a new frame that not only looks cool, but also goes towards a great cause," said Myles Kennedy. "For every MYLES frame purchased, a portion of the proceeds will be given to The MOSCOT Mobileyes foundation, a great charity that helps people correct their vision and enables them to achieve a better quality of life. I could not be more honored to be a part of this!"
But these MYLES shades are also for a good cause.
Ten percent of proceeds from The MYLES purchased in MOSCOT Shops and online at moscot.com benefit The MOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation. TheMOSCOT Mobileyes Foundation is committed to continuing to improve the lives of New York City's underserved communities by providing free medical eye examinations and prescription eyewear — a cause we can all get behind!
The MYLES retails for $270 as ophthalmic, and $270 as sunglasses.
Anyone want to spend the coin on these shades?
