My Lemtosh and I have a complicated – almost symbiotic – relationship. Since buying my first pair, with “tortoise”’ frames and light blue lenses, a few years ago in New York, I have (almost) never taken them off... I went into the store at number 118 Orchard Street, on the corner of Delancey Street, and bought fistfuls of them! It was around about then that Joel Moscot handed the running of the business over to his sons and the company changed its name from Sol Moscot to Moscot. I was the first to bring them to Italy and also to sell them - or should I say bootleg them - through my channels, creating a phenomenon that I kind of regretted later. There was a time when I think I was more recognizable with them than without. Some people say that I even wore them in my sleep, which is something I firmly deny: we slept in separate beds. And, of course, my guests never passed up an opportunity to steal them! And they weren't the only ones: even Johnny Depp in Secret Window and later in The Tourist, stole my "copyright", making Lemtosh glasses a global phenomenon, but Johnny Depp is Johnny Depp and - chapeau! It doesn't matter if he came later, there's nothing I can do about it. Other famous Moscot wearers include Andy Warhol and Truman Capote.

Io e i miei Lemtosh abbiamo avuto una relazione complicata, quasi simbiotica. Da quando, nel 2002 a New York, me ne sono procurato una versione con montatura ‘tortoise’ e lenti azzurre: non li ho tolti per (quasi) vent’anni! Andavo nella boutique di Orcahrd Street, al 118, con Delancey Street e ne compravo a manciate! Erano i tempi in cui Joel Moscot passò il testimone agli eredi e l’azienda cambiò il nome da Sol Moscot a Moscot. Per primo li ho portati in Italia e anche venduti - un pò di contrabbando - attraverso i miei canali, creando un fenomeno del quale mi sono, successivamente, anche un pò pentito.. Vi era un periodo in cui credo di essere stato più riconoscibile ‘con’ piuttosto che ‘senza’. Qualcuno sostiene che li indossavo anche nel sonno, ma nego tutto: dormivamo in letti separati. Anche perché le mie ospiti non perdevano occasione per rubarmeli! E non erano le uniche: anche Johnny Depp nel film ‘Secret Window’ e, successivamente in ‘The Tourist’, mi ha in qualche modo rubato il copyright, facendo dei Lemtosh un fenomeno globale, ma lui è Johnny Depp e - chapeau! - , anche se lui arriva più tardi, non posso farci nulla. Tra gli altri personaggi che hanno indossato i Moscot vanno citati anche Andy Warhol e Truman Capote.
