Todd Snyder Reinvents Moscot’s Iconic Zilch Sunglasses For Summer – Robb Report


Todd Snyder turns 10 this fall, but the New York label is wasting no time getting the celebrations started.

Just in time for summer, the menswear designer has launched a reimagined version of Moscot’s iconic Zilch sunglasses. Named The Nomad, the collaborative sunglasses offer a modern take on classic hues. The model, which comes in four colorways, takes its name from the location of the brand’s flagship store (north of MADison Square Park) and the designer’s wanderlust. To launch the sunglasses, Snyder worked directly with Zach Moscot, a fifth-generation Moscot and the company’s design director.

Not to be confused with Moscot’s popular Lemtosh Sun frames, The Nomad gives unisex eyewear a sporty twist on the Zilch. Crafted from a premium Italian acetate, the sunglasses feature a custom Todd Snyder tinted lens with an anti-reflective coating on the back. The model also showcases the signature square Moscot rivet on the temple with no exposed hardware on the front frame. The temple also features an exclusive Moscot and Todd Snyder New York engraving.

The varied shades available include a denim blue shade for the black model, brown for the brown, a forest wood shade for the gray and a gradient green for the olive shades. And with only one size option available, The Nomad fits all face shapes.

Classic Zilch sunglasses are Snyder’s go-to style in Moscot’s 106-year-old frame catalog. The model’s name is derived from a nickname given to the Moscot family, Grandpa Sol. Close friends and family would have called him that, knowing that Sol was anything but zero, nada, zip or zilch. The moniker stuck, and the original Zilch Sun was designed and prototyped by Zack Moscot in New York.

The Nomad is just the start of a new series of exclusive 10th anniversary collaborations developed in partnership with Snyder’s favorite brands. Other releases this year will include joint launches with Birdwell Beach Britches, Timex, Alden, Rocky Mountain Feather Bed and New Balance.
