Legendary online game designer Hideo Kojima has collaborated with French eyewear specialist Jean-François Rey to supply a limited-edition quartet of shades, specs, and a 3D-printed masks. The capsule assortment is on the market to preorder now for unknown costs, with supply slated for March 2022.
The designs had been apparently impressed by the appear and feel of Kojima’s Loss of life Stranding (not the primary time that exact recreation has led to high-fashion collaborations), however I really feel they might match fortunately into a lot of Kojima’s near-contemporary or futuristic recreation worlds. Maybe they’d even adorn the face of 1 the various wonderfully-named Metallic Gear Strong characters. Might we advise: Cool Glassesman. (It’s no worse than Scorching Coldman.)
The gathering consists of 4 items. First is HKxJF01, under: a pair of mixture spectacles with spherical frames and curved rectangular shades that flip out from the arms to cowl your eyes.

The final two gadgets are solely out there to buy collectively: a pair of barely steampunk-esque glasses, HKxJF03, and a 3D-printed masks named after and impressed by the look of Ludens, mascot of Kojima Productions.
The HKxJF03 specs mix steel, acetate, and “3D nylon” supplies (no matter meaning) whereas the masks is made utilizing a 3D-printing approach often called SLS, or selective laser sintering, with “adjustable nosepads and rimlocks for prescription lenses or sun shades.” It additionally seems to have little steel icons of the Kojima Productions emblem (which additionally options Ludens) constructed into the rim.

Actually, I feel all these look fairly nice. They’re not gadgets I’d ever personally have the arrogance, type, or cash to put on, however they’re undoubtedly loads nicer wanting than many different vogue and online game collaborations. (I’m pondering of Tag Heuer’s ugly Mario watches or Fortnite’s supremely unimaginative Balenciaga-themed cosmetics.) Hideo Kojima, aka Cool Glassesman: right here’s to you.
