Vol. 8 Greenery: The Flourishing Fashion Trend

Posted by WP on Jan 4, 2017 9:57:28 AM

The color of the year for 2017 takes a cue from nature, inviting you to revive your style and begin again come spring.

When Pantone announced the Color of the Year for 2017, we at Scojo New York were naturally elated. The much-anticipated pick, a yellow-green shade dubbed Greenery, can be found everywhere you look in nature—from backyard gardens to faraway forests—as well as in the avocados and matcha powder piling up in your kitchen cupboard. The shade itself suggests well-being, renewal, and revitalization—so it nicely harmonizes with the mode of self-expression that we are always reimagining: fashion.

A lush color perpetually on the periphery, Greenery is best used as a zesty accent tone. And as we note below, it has been artfully applied to a number of our ready-to-wear reading glasses. Here, we identify a few of the Scojo New York readers featuring this vivacious color. We invite you, beginning now, to turn over a new leaf and revive your style with this flourishing fashion trend.

Posted by WP on Dec 2, 2016 11:48:23 AM

With the Scojo New York Holiday Gift Guide, picking the right present has never been easier.

The best gifts are the ones you use time and time again. But when it comes to giving, you can't always be sure what will be cherished, let alone put to use, by those friends and family members you have thoughtfully bestowed gifts upon. To make sure you don't give dad—or that co-worker you randomly drew in your office's variation of Secret Santa—a dud, we have created a guide to help you navigate through the often opaque and disorienting blizzard of holiday shopping and arrive at that perfect gift. (After all: it's not like Santaor his ensemble of elves and reindeer—is going to be of any help, right?)

In which Scojo New York introduces the versatileand invigoratinghues to transition into autumn in style.

Fall, perhaps the most aptly-named season—when the thermometer's merciless mercury makes its last acceptable dip before winter—is officially here, and in full color.

Vol. 3 Featured Frame - The Carroll Street

Posted by WP on Aug 10, 2016 10:29:04 AM

In which Scojo New York highlights the Carroll Street—a handcrafted reading frame at the forefront of fashion.

 The Carroll Street reading frame, since the release of the original model, has earned an inordinate amount of attention—even for Scojo New York. This is due, perhaps, to its butterfly-inspired silhouette—which, no doubt, wins a bounty of style points. Or, another line of reasoning goes, it has to do with the quality of the acetate. Whatever the reason (maybe you could jot down your opinion in the comments section), the Carroll Street has only become more popular as its last two iterations, both of which flaunt fierce color combinations, have been released to radiant reviews. Here, we showcase the bestselling model, worn by the best-dressed booklovers the world over.
