Futureproof Your Eyewear With Gentle Monster's 'Overwatch 2' Collaboration
Get your game on.
Following the release of its super-successful collaboration with D’heygere Meld last month, Gentle Monster is joining forces with Blizzard Entertainment for its newest team-up, inspired by Overwatch 2.
Taking inspiration from D.Va, one of the game’s most notable characters, her iconic MEKA headset has been commemorated in a pair of goggle-like sunglasses. Arriving in an all-white frame, the glasses feature pink and blue hits across its “antennas,” aiming to replicate the appearance of mics.
A custom D.Va figure appears on the glasses’ left temple, crafted in an all-over silver hue and featuring a custom game skin. For added customization, the figure is detachable, offering its wearer the opportunity to wear it with or without. Inside the left temple, the name of D.va’s mech appears imprinted as “TOKKI,” with co-branding on the other temple.
Finally, the collaborative glasses come with a futuristic-looking protective case boasting snap closures. Each pair also comes complete with an Overwatch 2 season 5 redemption code, alongside a limited-edition in-game D.Va gaming skin.
The glasses will be available until August 31 via Gentle Monster’s time-sensitive Instagram filter challenge. To join, participants must post a video or photo using the filter, following and tagging both parties. On September 4, successful entrants will be contacted and will later receive their own pair of glasses.
Take a look at the new glasses above, and head to the campaign’s official webpage for more information.
