With the new series Ghost in the Shell SAC_2045 just around the corner, it makes perfect sense for the series to start getting a number of collaborations not only generating hype around the title but also promoting new forms of fashion and entertainment. In typical Japanese fashion, the series is getting what I think is a super awesome collaboration and that’s with the glasses brand less than human. They are collaborating on a line of sunglasses from the SAC_2045 series which is going to be sold exclusively through the Tokyo Giga retail store.
There are a total of three designs available that share the same physical design, however, they do sport different colors.
The black color is themed after Makoto Kusanagi’s Ninja Suit
The blue color is themed after Tachikoma
The beige color is themed after Makoto Kusanagi’s Formal Wear.
As mentioned previously, the SAC_2045 less than human sunglasses will be sold exclusively through the Tokyo Giga retail store and online. The sunglasses will set you back a pretty penny though as they’re not cheap, ¥36,000 to be exact. If you’re a fan of the Ghost in the Shell series, however, this might not be too much of a set back as they’re likely to be fairly limited given that they’re a fashion item.
Preorders for the SAC_2045 less than human sunglasses have already started and will continue on through May 13th, 2020. Do keep in mind though that you need a Japanese address to be able to purchase the sunglasses so you would likely need a proxy or a friend in Japan to help you arrange the order. Oh, they aren’t scheduled to ship until September or October as well.
As with many fashion items, I like the way they look, but I just don’t really have that much of a sense of fashion. So this is something that I likely would never be able to pull off, even if I wanted to. But the design is really awesome and I would love to see them in person.
