LOOK: The Zoff x Gaspard et Lisa Eyewear Collection Will Make You Look Classy
Need a new pair of specs?
In celebration of its 20th anniversary this year, Gaspard and Lisa collaborated with the famous Japanese eyewear brand Zoff to produce a new collection called the Zoff x Gaspard et Lisa. The first-ever collaboration series features two types of eyewear—the Macaron Line and the Esprit Line—which were both produced with a theme of Gaspard and Lisa living in Paris.

Here’s a sneak peek of the collection at one of the Zoff branches in Harajuku:

The simple interior makes the colorful eyewear stand out.
Zoff Harajuku Branch was renovated and recently reopened last December. Since Harajuku is known for being a multicultural location that showcases new trends, an event that celebrates the mix of art, music, fashion including eyewear is also being held here.

The Esprit Line represents Paris’ style.
Check out the cute and charming Macaron Line!
Aozora Tsuzuki wears the Oval type from the Macaron Line in beige. Other colors include brown, pink, and dark gray.
The Oval type from the Macaron Line (¥7,000 tax excluded, with regular lenses) has four different designs with 14 variations. Its light colors and translucent, clear tones make the eyewear really cute. It also gives a simple yet refreshing aura on one’s face.

The inner frames of the temples showcase a classy gold core, Gaspard and Lisa’s illustration, and a message that says “Gaspard and Lisa are real Parisians.” In addition to this, the temple tips have the shapes of Gaspard and Lisa’s faces.
The spring-like colors of the Oval type eyewear give Tsuzuki’s face a soft impression.
The Wellington type, on the other hand, has a bigger frame than the Oval type. It is available in various colors such as red, black, green, and brown.

Some designs in the Macaron Line are made from metal and plastic materials. The temples are decorated with tiny stripes, channeling the French casual style.
The Boston type, from the same line, has fun little details on the temples.
On the inner side of the frames, you can find the two characters and their logo design. The bigger frame, which is the Boston type, is available in black, green, and red, while the smaller one with the sharper image, the Oval type, has three colors: pink, blue, and brown.
Aside from the Macaron Line, the Esprit Line (¥9,000 tax excluded, with regular lenses) makes use of a tricolor pattern and antique styling to achieve a chic Parisian look. The line has four different designs and 12 variations to choose from. Flexible and sturdy beta titanium is used for the temples of all the models in this series.

“The demi design of the Boston type makes any outfit look better. It’s stylish and doesn’t come off too strong with its curved frame,” says Tsuzuki.
The end pieces are Cloisonné ware in black and white, representing Gaspard and Lisa respectively.
The Wellington type from the Esprit Line is highly recommended for men. Its deep colors and vintage style gives off a mature look and makes for the perfect eyewear for both casual and business scenes.

Esprit Line’s metal series are the Fox and Crown Panto types that are a hot trend in Paris right now. By using techniques that make the colors of the eyewear frames deeper, the glasses project a sophisticated impression. The temples are playfully decorated as well.

Do take note that stocks may be limited depending on the branch. It’s best to inquire first before going to the store!
