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.

Star Wars Theme Cafe Opens in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hokkaido & Fukuoka
With The Rise of Skywalker concluding the Skywalker saga of the Star Wars film franchise, fans are left craving more from the galaxy far far away.
If you’re one of those people, and need a fix before season two of The Mandalorian, which is coming in late 2020, then you’ll want to hit up the all-new Star Wars-themed cafes now open for a limited time at branches of OH MY CAFE across Japan in Tokyo, Osaka, Nagoya, Hokkaido, and Fukuoka.
We visited the Tokyo branch of the cafe which is located inside Tokyu Plaza Omotesando Harajuku. Here’s our report of this must-see cafe for Star Wars fans, a museum-like space chock-full of concept art.
Ready to greet you as you walk into the cafe is none other than Darth Vader. This life-size recreation of the Sith Lord is really striking, but don’t worryーthough he is realistic, he won’t use his Force choke on you, he only wishes for you to have a nice meal.
Plastered across the cafe walls are pieces of concept art used during the production of the Star Wars film series.
Here’s a galactic showcasing of the cafe’s menu. There are 7 food items and 5 drinks to choose from, all inspired by the franchise and its characters.
<STAR WARS> Far Far Away Galaxy Black Curry – ¥1,590
A signature dish of the cafe, this black curry features the Star Wars logo which is actually an edible wafer. The space design is bamboo charcoal-cooked rice which is mixed with spicy sauce and topped with peanuts for stars.
<BB-8> Seafood BB-8 Gratin – ¥1,690
Fans of BB-8 won’t be able to resist this delicious gratin, served with salad and French bread for a full belly.
<Yoda> Root Leaf Stew – ¥1,590
This stew is inspired by Yoda living his final years in his little shack in Dagobah during Star Wars: Episode V – The Empire Strikes Back. It’s packed full of vegetables and will no doubt be enjoyed by both kids and adults alike.
<R2-D2 & C-3PO> Buddy Burger Plate – ¥1,990
This set of two chicken burgers comes with an R2-D2 seasoned with béchamel sauce and a C-3PO burger seasoned with meat sauce. You can take the flags home with you too. We recommend sharing this between two people.
Portion Bread – ¥500
This is the one I was most interested in personally, because I was curious to know from its appearance how it would taste. It’s the portion bread that Rey tries eating in the film. At first glance it looks crunchy, but to my surprise it was soft with a subtle sweet flavour.
Lightsaber Drinks – ¥600 Each (w/ Coaster ¥1,300)
From the left, the flavours are Darth Vader blood orange, Luke Skywalker ramune, and Yoda melon. When you draw your straw from the paper wrapping, it turns into a lightsaber!
<STAR WARS > Jet Black Coffee – ¥600 (w/Bottle ¥1,750)
These limited edition bottles of black coffee feature the famous Star Wars opening crawl credits. Which one you get is randomーa must-have for all fans!
After enjoying some Star Wars food and drink, it’s time to check out the cafe’s exclusive merchandise. There are 13 types of merch in total all bearing artwork from across the film series.
Folder – ¥350
I recommend picking up one of these folders made in collaboration with the cafe. It has illustrations of the food and drinks being sold there.
Tote Bag – ¥3,500
This tote bag has illustrations of characters from Star Wars and how they are all connected.
There’s plenty of other must-grab merch too, from music to stationery and more.
Customers who spend over ¥1,000 (excluding tax) on any of these exclusive items will receive the above-pictured limited edition bag. These are limited in stock so are available while supplies last.
There’s plenty of places inside for fans to take great photos, so make sure you snap lots.
Also, if you book a table in advance and order something from the menu, you’ll receive one of these 25 possible A5 folders, so be sure to book before you go!

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.
ZO192024 Available in 3 colours ¥9,000
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.
ZN191011 Available in three colours ¥9,000
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.”
Whether you are a fan of the models or this is your first time hearing about them, you just have to check out their stylish designs which are suitable for men and women of all ages.

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 “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.

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.

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.

IC card cases using the motif of Millennium Falcon that appears in “Star Wars” is now on sale.
“FLASH Series,” a sundry brand that sells products using technologies and facilities RE: circuit boards, started selling “FLASH IC Card Case,” “FLASH IC Card Clip” and “FLASH iPhone Case” using the motif of “Millennium Falcon（TM）” that appears in the “Star Wars” series.
The iPhone case uses an IC card clip and an IC card case using a circuit board mounted on an electrical part designed with the circuit board CAD. The product is designed in the same way as when designing real circuit boards. Since the circuit board CAD is not a design software, the products are designed manually by drawing lines using a mouse. The products are coated with plastic in a clean room to protect the parts. The products are only available in Japan.
Both the“FLASH IC Card Case” and the “FLASH IC Card Clip” have a gimmick where the mounted LED lights up when they are used in the collector’s box and during IC-card shopping. This feature will make your everyday commute to school or work much more enjoyable. The card can be used as an ID card case if the size matches with your card.
The IC card case using the motif of「Millennium Falcon（TM）」has 8 blue LEDs mounted on the drive unit. The IC card case is made using an electric circuit. Three kinds of electric circuits (surface, middle part and reverse side) are pressed together to make the case. The printed electrical circuit is manufactured by FR-4 (glass fiber cloth and epoxy) and is light but strong. The circuit is also used in cars and industrial machines.
Two white LEDs are mounted on the front Floodlight part of FLASH IC card clip. The clip was developed under the concept of “not carrying around a wallet.”An ID card can be inserted too.
FLASH iPhone Case has a red LED (without battery) mounted on the top laser cannon part. The LED does not light up normally but will light up randomly when strong radio waves are emitted. The characteristic of this case is its precise design created with an electrical circuit CAD.
