We might be on the last leg of summer but that doesn't mean we’re putting the shades away anytime soon. On the contrary, with only a few weeks left to enjoy the blaring heat, there's no time like the present to whip out those dramatic frames. That’s where Gentle Monster comes in. For their latest collaboration, the South Korean stalwarts of sunnies have teamed up with Overwatch 2 on a pair that will be familiar to fans of the first-person shooter.
To coincide with the release of Overwatch 2: Invasion on 10 August, Gentle Monster has created a pair of sunglasses modelled off one of the franchise's beloved characters. Dubbed the ‘TOKKI’, the unique design is inspired by D.Va’s transportation robot of the same name. The sleek white frames are adorned with mech-like antennae on the arms giving the silhouette a distinct futuristic quality. Blurring the lines between reality and the gaming world, they're just the thing for any Overwatch super fan.
The collaboration will be sold as ‘Gentle TOKKI edition packs’, which include a pair of tinted sunglasses in one of two colourways, limited in-game skins for the Overwatch 2 character D.Va, and an assortment of other in-game items. Players can also buy the skin separately when it is released for a limited time on 17 August. Those yearning to add the bold pack to their collection can also enter the ‘Gentle Monster x Overwatch 2 Challenge’ on Instagram from 17 to 31 August. Participants can enter by uploading a photo or video taken with the D.VA filter and adding the event hashtags.
