Blue light is emitted from your everyday tech, including your PC, TV and smartphone. It is defined as visible light that ranges between 380 to 500 nm. It is thought that exposure to blue light can lead to a number of issues, resulting in eye strain, a disruption in the rhythm of the body, and headaches. But the people over at Zoff have designed some stylish and kawaii glasses that you can use in any situation to help dispel the effects of blue light. The glasses’ nose pads and temple tips are made of rubber so you can adjust them according to your preference. They are agreeable for those wearing glasses for the first time too.

 

The Pikachu model has a monogram design, so even adults can pull them off. So go head and choose your Pokémon, who will help you out in any digital situation.

  • Pokémon Shirts Original Stitch Collection Gets Overhaul

    20.October.2019 | ANIME&GAME / FASHION

    Back in February, American custom shirt brand Original Stitch, which offers over one billion design customisations, launched a collaboration with the Pokémon franchise. That very same Pokémon Shirts collection has received a product overhaul

    The line-up offers two options: either a shirt featuring one of the original 151 Pokémon, or a plain shirt which you can fully customise. Orders are made online and delivered to your home.

     

    The collection is launching in the US this time around. To celebrate and help promote the collaboration, you’ll find four Pokémon Shirts designs in the Pokémon GO style shop: Snorlax, Vileplume, Lickitung, and Magikarp.

     

    There are three styles of this short-sleeved shirts to choose from just as before: the Dress Shirt, Casual Shirt, and Relax Shirt. To ensure that each shirt matches  any occasion, all the patterns for each style have been revamped.

    Dress Shirt

    Made to fit the body line, the dress shirt is made for the business scene. It works best as an inner to a suit or other formal dress. The shirt retains the same high level of quality as before, with the bust line and space around the arm length being altered. Its revision has made it so it caters to more people’s needs.

    Casual Shirt

    The casual shirt is of course made for everyday wear. The waist line has no shape and the shirt has been made more roomy to create a more overall loose fit. By wearing the shirt untucked you can create an even more stylish silhouette. The collar is also now more compact.

    Relax Shirt

    The relax shirt has more of a box silhouette than the casual shirt, as well as an open collar. This style is perfect for trips and travel. The body line has been made more loose and they have gotten rid of the waist line shape. The lining of the collar has been changed too, resulting in a more relaxed look.

     

    Larger sizes have also been added to the collection including 3XL, 5XL, and 7XL. Full details can be found on the Original Stitch Support Centre page.

    There are also now 10 colours to choose from, including colours from before as well as redesigned ones, meaning there’s plenty of customisable options.

    Even the buttons have been improved. They are still as colourful as ever but have been made into more of a pop style to match what you’d expect from a Pokémon shirt. There are 11 colours to choose from, but for an extra ¥500 you can get one of 8 marble buttons as pictured in the lower row above.

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.
