As an authorised seller of Moscot, we often get asked in store, “which one is the Johnny Depp frame?” Well, that frame would be the iconic Lemtosh. While Moscot has built a reputation over five generations, the Lemtosh has carved out its own legacy with a cult following around the world.
Johnny Depp put Moscot and the Lemtosh on the map in 2004 with the release of ‘Secret Window’. However, this frame has been around since the 1930s and has been worn by other icons like Truman Capote and Buddy Holly. The rounded square design of the Lemtosh is one of the most versatile frames on the market, making it a template for many eyewear companies attempting to replicate its classic style. However, there’s nothing quite like the original.
The Lemtosh comes in an enormous range of colours and is available in both optical and sunglasses, with three different sizes to choose from. Its design has stood the test of time, remaining unchanged since the 1930s, and it is also one of the most durable frames on the market. It’s not uncommon for people to come in with a well-loved, 10+ year old Lemtosh frame, and after a professional polish, it comes up looking like new. If you’re looking for a classic, versatile frame that will stand the test of time, the Lemtosh is the perfect choice.
