Famed Eyewear Purveyor MOSCOT Announces Its Sexiest Frame Ever: The MANGITO, Exclusively for Women

MILAN, ITALY--(Marketwire - March 5, 2010) -  MIDO -- Venerable New York City institution, MOSCOT, today announced the launch of The MANGITO, the newest addition to the company's MOSCOT Originals Collection and its sexiest frame ever.

The MANGITO is named after Great Aunt Gladys (Sol's sister) -- and while her name may not be sexy, her story most decidedly is. A natural globetrotter with wanderlust in her heart, Gladys bid adieu to Manhattan's Lower East Side and found herself poolside in Miami where she met Cuban-born Benno Correa, who bestowed upon her the nickname, MANGITO, Cuban slang meaning sexy, hot and fresh, became her husband and whisked her away to a happily ever after life of Cuba Libres and Conga dancing in Havana, Cuba.

The MOSCOT Originals MANGITO, like its namesake Gladys, is hot, sexy and fresh -- feminine yet bold, with unique lines and curves that make a provocative statement that's still subtle with a come-hither look. Like a just barely there French accent, or a wisp of a hair that keeps falling across her face. Think Bridgette Bardot, Sophia Loren, or Kate Winslet.

Designed exclusively for women and available as an ophthalmic frame or sunglasses, The MANGITO is available in Black or Tortoise and features a seven-barrel hinge with two rivets on either side. The MANGITO retails for a list price of $250 US and will be available in MOSCOT stores or online at www.moscot.com, and at select retailers beginning in April 2010. Visit http://www.moscot.com/locations.html for a list of retailers.
