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.
Designs by Saki Shibata

These compact and circular-shaped rims are the perfect way to highlight your classic look or even a tomboy look. However you decide to wear these glasses, you will always look good with minimum effort.

The vintage style and matte coloured metal frame make these glasses perfect for both men and women. The carefully chosen size makes these extra special.
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
ZP192020 Available in 3 colours ¥7,000
These frames are rectangular with soft round edges to make your face look smaller and your eyes look bigger.
ZO191012 Available in 3 colours ¥9,000
A perfect mix between foxy and geeky, the roundness of these rims is subtle, adding a feminine touch to your look. Although you may get the impression that these glasses only go well with a few styles, they actually coordinate well with a surprisingly large range of styles.
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
ZP192019 Available in three colours ¥7,000
The metal frame is so beautiful that it is like wearing an accessory. The subtle colours of the frame make it perfect for casual clothing. If you are looking for something for everyday use, these are perfect. Big rims are trending right now.

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.”

Prepare for New Year by Ordering a Minion or Hello Kitty-Themed New Year Osechi Food Bento in Advance
28.August.2019 | FOOD
To properly celebrate a Japanese New Year, Osechi cannot be overlooked. Osechi is a Japanese term referring to special food traditionally served during the New Year holidays. The food is filled with the hopes, wishes and happiness of people. This year, Belle Maison has released Minion-themed and Hello Kitty-themed osechi bento boxes.
Belle Maison opened their reservation website for these Osechi Bento boxes on August 23rd.
2-Tier Minion Osechi Bento Box: ￥22,000 (after tax)
Underneath the dazzling smiling face of the minion is a bento box packed with delicious New Year’s goodness. The box contains a mix of traditional flavours as well as small appetizer-style bites. This is something that children as well as adults would love. The box even includes a delicious soup and a cured and steamed white fish kamaboko, which bears the image of a minion.
3-Tier Hello Kitty Osechi Bento Box: ￥19,900 (after tax)
The Hello Kitty Osechi comes in a Hello Kitty 45-year anniversary box. From the Hello Kitty ribbon-shaped mochi to the pink lilies made from yokan jellied red bean paste, this bento box is packed with cute and beautiful Hello Kitty goodness. There is also Hello Kitty mousse made from whipped cream and a Hello Kitty steamed bun with a sweet potato and chunky adzuki bean paste filling. This box is packed tightly with so many delicious desserts.
