The Type One shades sold out within a week of their release. Eight years later, the 2017 Common Projects/MOSCOT Type One Sunglasses ($350) give you a chance to own the sought-after frame, but again you have to hurry, as they come in a 500-limited run.
The result of a collab between 102 year-old New York City eyewear institution, MOSCOT, and famous fashion brand, Common Projects, the bold looking shades are made of uniform matte black Italian acetate with high-gloss metal detailing. Boasting lenses that are constructed of G15 glass for both UVA and UVB protection, each pair sports a unique gold-stamped serial number and comes with a premium leather case and a chamois cleaning cloth.
With the new sunglasses expected to do as well as the first run in 2009, MOSCOT and Common Projects have scheduled a third limited edition set of the Type One for a September 2017 release, this time arriving with glossy-black frames.
