High Snobiety's review of Mosley Tribes

High Snobiety (A great streetwear blog you should check out if you don't already go there regularly) did a great job writing up the new Mosley Tribes Spring and Summer 2008 line, so we figured we'd just post it in as is.

Mosley Tribes S/S '08 & Much More:

Mosley Tribes is definitely one of the most interesting brands in the sunglass market to watch. Launched by the same people that also created the probably most respected sunglass brand in the market, Oliver Peoples, you can be sure that Mosley Tribes knows the field and delivers quality. Actually Mosely Tribes sees itself more like a lifestyle brand than a regular sunglass brand, which is also reflected in their line-up and collaborations. Inspirations for each season are derived from sport culture, street luxury and iconic style.

Here we present you the Mosley Tribes Spring/Summer 2008 collection, as well as some interesting collaborations the brand has been part of. The S/S '08 collection offers a set of classic sunglasses with a modern twist - perfect chemistry. Make sure to keep your eyes open for the Spring/Summer 2008 Resort collection.

Now we come to the part that makes Mosley Tribes a lifestyle brand. Already presented to you by us this summer is the Mosley Tribes x Maharishi collaboration. The sunglasses that came out of the collaboration perfectly reflect the military style of Maharishi. The temples are covered in Maharishi DPM Bonsai Forest camouflage and the sunglasses come with three interchangeable lenses and a matching camouflage case. Something to look out for.

Last but not least Mosley Tribes has teamed up with New Era on a collaboration on the iconic 5950 cap. Furthermore they got together with SE Racing to make a customized fixed gear bike. How many sunglass brand do you know that have done that? Exactly!

Enough talking now, check out the Mosley Tribes Resort Spring/Summer 2008 collection, Maharishi collaboration, New Era cap and SE Racing Fixed Gear bike after the jump.

Trainer Spotter

U.K. vintage-inspired vendor Trainer Spotter has released two new colorways of their popular sunglasses. Here are the four color combinations they now come in:




The description from their website reads:
"Slick 1980’s Tokyo (Los Angeles, New York City, London) inspired B-Boy shades with black lenses. Complete with Palm Print Microfibre bag."

At ₤25 (about $50) These stunner shades are a pretty good deal, stock up and maybe save for when spring comes around. We could easily see the Tokyo candy-colored version as a major hit for that time of year.

wowzers, new sabre zebra

Sabre just released their model "The Dude" in a new zebra-striped colorway (the 5th that this model is available in). Available through and this crazy new styling on their sunglasses which sort of resemble classic ray-ban wayfarer styling are sure to be a hit for anyone who appreciates opulent eyewear. We think the zebra pattern is going to be a huge hit.

The glasses are a bit much, no????
Well, she does have a new TV show coming out in the U.K. Gotta do whatever it takes to promote it!

Nice hair, though!

New York, New York.

If you're around New York City and looking for some vintage eyewear, we've come across some nice sources for you.

Fabulous Fanny's
This vintage shop in the east village is one of the best places on the east coast for vintage eyewear. They've got a great selection of vintage men's and women's frames, as well as a good selection of sunglasses and antique eyewear. They also rent to the film industry and for photoshoots, and their eyewear has been featured in "The American Gangster," "Capote" and "Night at the Museum." Also, check out their jewlery and vintage clothing.
Check out their catalog online or drop by the shop:
335 E 9th St
(between 1st Ave & 2nd Ave)
New York, NY 10003 (212) 533-0637

Sarita at the Greenflea Flea Market and East 67th Street Market
Although she doesn't have a website or store, Sarita, a kind eyewear enthusiast has a booth at the East 67th Street Market on Saturdays and the Greenflea Flea Market on Columbus Ave. on Sundays. She's got a decent selection of deadstock vintage frames, and some nice sunglasses as well. She does a great job helping visitors pick out frames, and unlike many vintage sellers, can put in prescription lenses for you as well.
She can typically be located in the back right of the Greenflea Flea Market located at 410 Columbus Ave. (at West 76th St.), New York City on Sundays year round (she's there down to 32 degrees in the winter she says)
and at the East 67th Street Market located at P.S. 183 - East 66th and East 67th Streets between 1st and York Avenues.

Glasses Stickers.

Ugly Home is a Parisian boutique and line of home decorations that are unique and witty. We came across their "Lunettes" stickers and couldn't help but feature them here. They are designed as part of their Munchausen collection and are 17cm X 17cm and come in black or silver. What a great way for the optical enthusiast to decorate their setting!
