Eyewear brand JINS Teams Up with Swedish Artist Eleonor Boström for New Collaboration
19.August.2021 | FASHION
Top Japanese eyewear brand JINS is collaborating with Swedish ceramicist and illustrator Eleonor Boström on a new line of unique glasses. The new collection will be available at JINS stores nationwide and online starting August 19.
JINS x Eleonor Boström (Combi) 4 models, 12 varieties, 3 colors: ¥8,800 (Tax Included)
JINS × Eleonor Boström (Metal) 4 models, 12 varieties, 3 colors: ¥13,200 (Tax Included)
Patterned Cleaning Cloth
Campaign Prize: Ceramic flower made by Eleonor
The world has fallen in love with Swedish artist Eleonor Boström, and wonders what she’ll make next–for the past ten years, she has created works inspired by dogs, claiming that she hasn’t grown tired of it yet. Her work is characterized by utilizing dogs to express thoughts on society, reality, fantasy, and flowers. While her style seems humorous and lighthearted, her message is more serious: people get caught up in the minutiae of daily life, and we should all take time to stop and smell the roses. This collaboration, based on the concept of living every moment to the fullest, is a symbol of self-acceptance and relaxation.
This collaboration has been made possible by TONKACHI, a popular art initiative hosting a number of creators. JINS x Eleonor Boström is the second collaborative eyewear series the initiative has created, the first being JINS x Polly Fern.
Edgar, the pet dog of the British character Sybil who appeared in the Polly Fern collection, features heavily in this collaboration. With 8 models and 24 varieties of slim metal frames, there’s something for everyone! Each pair is playful yet subtle, and are paired with a soft case and cleaning cloth which are limited to this collection. The case itself features a simple embossed design featuring Edgar, while the cloth is printed with a four-frame comic drawn by Eleonor exclusively for this release.
The third project with TONKACHI is planned to be a collaboration with Marianne Hallberg, a ceramic artist from Gothenburg, Sweden.

Brew Yourself a Gundam Tea With the Zaku Japanese Iron Kettle
Premium Bandai released a Japanese nanbu tekki iron kettle last week which fuses traditional Japanese craftsmanship with the internationally-celebrated Mobile Suit Gundam franchise. Available via Bandai Nambo’s ecommerce site, the kettle can also be picked up in Japan at the Gundam Cafe and all GUNDAM SQUARE stores starting in late June.
Nanbu Tekki Zaku (Green)
This green model is one of several nanbu tekki kettles released in the Discovery-G line, a series of products that combines the world of Gundam with Japanese tradition. It’s an upgrade of the green Zaku kettle previously released in 2018.
Nanbu tekki is a form of metalwork from Japan with a long history dating back to 1088 where it originated in Oshu. The name ‘Nanbu’ originates from a feudal clan known as the Nanbu-han who established the cast iron industry in the northeastern part of Honshu. Since the region had easy access to the resources required to make ironware, the industry was quickly established. In 1975, the nanbu tekki made in Morioka and Oshu were officially registered as a Traditional Craft of Japan by the Minister of Trade and Industry in Japan. This technique was most prevalent in the ’30s as items such as iron pots and Buddhist altars and ornaments were in high demand.
These teapots are lauded for their high quality and last a lifetime. This Zaku version allows Gundam fans to enjoy the tradition of the nanbu tekki with a cup of tea alongside their love of the anime franchise.
Nanbu Tekki Zaku Green
Released: May 12, 2021 (Limited-Edition)
Shipping: June 2021
Price: ¥27,500 (Tax Included/Shipping & Handling Fees Not Included)
*Also available at Gundam Cafe and GUNDAM SQUARE in Japan
