Moscot Partners With 101 Designs for Distribution Across South Africa

NEW YORK— Moscot, the New York City-based eyewear company, has partnered with South African distributor, 101 Designs.

After successfully selling the Moscot Originals Collection at VisionView in Cape Town for the past two years, 101 Designs will now have greater access to all Moscot Collections for buyers throughout South Africa. The partnership was inaugurated at the Str.Crd 2013 culture festival held in Johannesburg last week where 101 Designs held a trunk show. Starting tomorrow, Oct. 1, 2013, Moscot Originals, Spirit and Sun Collections will begin arriving at selected optical boutiques and specialty stores.

“Partnering with 101 Designs to distribute our collections in South Africa is very exciting,” said Wendy Simmons, co-president of Moscot. “We've built a loyal following of fans, so it's really great to have the opportunity to make Moscot more widely available with the help of a partner who shares our commitment to quality and customer service.”

"We're focused on importing niche, high-end fashion eyewear brands into South Africa that focus on design, style, and quality,” said Gary Sher, president of 101 Designs. “Moscot is a perfect example of quality, aesthetics, and understated style. Working with Moscot is the perfect alignment with our brand strategy.”
