The reign of the Minions continues as Japanese glasses brand Zoff has revealed a new collection based on the popular characters from the Despicable Me series. The glasses line will be released at Zoff stores and the company website on April 26.
The banana design features―you guessed it, a banana design, every Minions’ favourite fruit. The inner part of the frame also has Gru’s “G” logo on it.
This design is inspired by the denim dungarees that Minions are known for wearing. This design makes it easy for incorporating with casual fashion.
The leather quality is brought about using a special manufacturing technique. Its chic design is perfect for wearing to school or the workplace.
This “Daily Line” of glasses is perfect for both Minions fans and people wanting to just have fun with fashion in a nonchalant way. They are made using lightweight materials too and so are comfortable to wear. Zoff also stocks children’s sizes of these glasses too making it perfect for parents and kids to have fun matching.
The “Classic Line” uses metal frames―something which is popular right now―and is a golden colour, the Minions’ favourite. The rims look thick when viewed from the side and so give them both a goggle-type and trendy look.
The classic spectacles too are lightweight and so are comfortable sat on the face. They are recommended for more mature fans of the Minions as well as people simply looking for classic-looking frames.
All of these glasses some with the above-pictured glasses case and wipe with the three most popular Minions illustrated on them: Kevin, Stuart and Bob.

Young ASOBISYSTEM Models Design Glasses Perfect for Everyday Fashion
19.September.2019 | FASHION
Glasses brand Zoff teamed up with famous models Saki Shibata, Yuri Suganuma and Rinko Murata to produce a branded glasses series that is perfect to wear “All Day, Every Day”. The girls designed these glasses to fit into and enhance your everyday life experiences. The Zoff CLASSIC Girls Collection -All Day, Every Day- series will be released across Japan from October 11, 2019.
The main theme of this series is All Day, Every Day. From this, the three sub themes of morning, midday and evening were created and each model was put in charge of the designs for one of these themes. Shibata was in charge of ‘morning’ designs, Suganuma was in charge of ‘midday’ designs and Murata was in charge of ‘evening’ designs. Each model carefully thought of how the user would wear the glasses during their sub theme time in order to fully enhance their daily experiences. Each model also created a unique personal design out of metal for the temple tips of the glasses they designed.
Before being released in stores, the glasses will be available to preorder from Zoff’s official online store from 11am (JST) on September 20. From the same day from 9pm, there will be a one-hour-long live broadcast where the models will showcase their creations. A limited number of the glasses will be available to preorder during this live broadcast.
There is also a lottery taking place with the chance to take part in the Zoff CLASSIC Girls Collection Special Event which consists of two parts: A tea session where you can listen to the girls’ stories on how they produced the glasses and even get some pointers on how to coordinate your look, and a special photography session with the three models.

Shibata’s statement on the personalised symbol:
“I want the wearer to feel good the moment they put on these glasses. I designed these glasses to give the wearer confidence to hold their head high and say: ‘Today is going to be a wonderful day and I am going to enjoy every moment of it.'”
Designs by Yuri Suganuma

Suganuma’s statement on the personalised symbol:
“My design is a heart rate to represent how the wearer will feel when they put these glasses on. I hope my glasses make your heart jump with excitement.”
Designs by Rinko Murata

There is a wonderful contrast between the different materials used and the circular-shaped lenses give a classic look. Switch the lenses for blue light blocking lenses to reduce the amount of blue light exposure from your computer and phone.
Murata’s statement on the personal symbol:
“I etched my initials ‘rm’ into the design. I hope the wearer feels the power to transform into a brand new person whenever they put on these glasses. I hope my glasses provide a sense of comfort and confidence to the wearer.”

Japanese glasses brand Zoff has unveiled that it will release a new line of glasses in its Star Wars collection at its stores and its online store on July 12.
With Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker set for a December 20, 2019 release, Zoff is getting in on the action by adding to its range. It first dropped the Star Wars collection back in 2018 where it developed glasses frames. This summer, it’ll be stylish sunglasses.
The sunglasses are inspired by the sequel trilogy with references to major characters including Anakin Skywalker as well as scenes only seen in the sequels including a young Obi Wan Kenobi and Yoda when he was lively.
Each model in the collection cuts 99.9%. The line-up includes a model with photochromic lenses, another with polarised lenses, The Zoff Night & Day that is both glasses and sunglasses, and more.
Zoff Night & Day
2 Designs – ¥9,500 Each (Tax Included) *Includes price for normal lenses
The outer metal chip of the glasses has the iconic Star Wars logo subtly branded onto it which reflects light while the inner part, which is the same metallic colour, has the same logo but larger. The glasses have a red colour, synonymous with the Sith, combined with yellow, a colour representing hope for the future.
3 Designs – ¥7,500 Each (Tax Included) *An extra ¥3,000 for additional lenses
The colour of these lenses change depending on the amount of UV rays. With the photochromic lenses, the inner part is used as glasses while the outer part is used as sunglasses. There are three designs including Yoda and Anakin. Since the designs are on the inner part of the glasses they can be used in less informal settings too.
3 Designs – ¥7,500 Each (Tax Included) *An extra ¥5,000 for additional lenses
The polarised lenses cut reflected light such as on glares from roads and glass. This makes them ideal for driving, jogging, fishing and other scenarios where one is exposed to bright glares. The three designs feature Darth Maul from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace, podracing, and Yoda’s epic battle.
Glasses come with an original Star Wars case and cloth.
If you’re a Star Wars fan, you won’t want to miss out on this exclusive collection.

The adventurous and curious Ariel is depicted with a wave and shell design. The curvy frame represents the free waves that Ariel would explore. There is a subtle shell at the side of frame near the screws. When you fold the glasses, the rhinestones will tuck under the shell, glistening beautifully like a jewellery box.
Fold your glasses and the rhinestone looks like a pearl hiding in a shell.
The temple of the glasses take on the appearance of a wave. The tips of the temple are made to look like Ariel’s mermaid tail.

The days are still cold as February draws to a close, but I want to get out of this rut of wearing winter clothes every day! If you feel the same as I do, why not pick out a new pair of glasses in preparation for spring and discover a new you?
clear frames and their natural appearance
I want to feel refreshed so I head to a record store to search for a new record. I might try out a genre I don’t normally listen to.
I’ve gone for a casual look today with a sweater, jeans and sneakers. I add a scarf for style so I don’t look too rough.
For those who like unique things but aren’t confident with challenging themselves to something new, then I recommend getting glasses with clear frames. At a glance they look difficult to co-ordinate with, but they’re in fact a fantastic choice that go with anything. It’s good to try out things you normally wouldn’t go for to make you feel refreshed.

rough brought to life with glasses
On my days off I usually hole up at home but today I went to chill at a local cafe.
I go for a rough look with a hoodie, checkered pants and sneakers. The colours are my silhouette are rough but this is balanced by my brow-framed glasses.
This type of frame of course goes well with tight, well-balanced looks, but why not try something different by combining with a rough outfit?

playing around with unique glasses
Wearing a jacket set-up like this makes you feel sophisticated. Grab a coffee during your work break, straighten your back and get through the last day of the week.
While an outfit like this will make you feel proper, paying attention to the size and material while taking into account the overall balance will have you looking even more dapper.
Since the outfit is so neat and trimmed you’ve gotta go with a quirky pair of glasses. This gives a playfulness.
Model’s Glasses: OWNDAYS – ¥9,980 (Before Tax)

my new standard
Everyone has their ‘go-to’ outfits. By adding just some little changes to your go-to you can experience a whole new you.
My long-sleeved trench coat coupled with the loose pants makes for a tight balance. Combining this with glasses that have a defined colour and shape brings the whole mood of the look together.
When I look in the mirror, I see an unfamiliar me. A new me.
