G-Shock has returned to one of its most successful limited edition collaborations with the launch of a second GORILLAZ X G-SHOCK collection.

The first version launched in 2018 and sold out immediately. It has since become a tradeable collectors’ item.

There are two limited-edition G-Shock styles designed by Gorillaz co-creator Jamie Hewlett, who has taken inspiration from two acclaimed albums from the Grammy and BRIT Award winning band: ‘Gorillaz’ and ‘The Now Now’.

The limited edition is launched with a Youtube videoart-directed by Mr Hewlett, with French directors collective BRVTVS.

 

 

The two bespoke collaboration styles are DW-5600 and GA-2000.

The DW-5600, inspired by Gorillaz’ most recent album ‘The Now Now’ uses the album cover’s pop blue and pink and, in another nod to the record, the bi-color message ‘NOW’ floats onto the display whenever it is illuminated by the back light.

 

 

The GA-2000 honors the Gorillaz 2001 eponymous debut release by using the iconic camo print. It comes with two interchangeable wrist bands – one featuring the camo print and the other a darker military style.

 

The collector’s edition box also features 2001 era design incarnations of the Gorillaz characters.

You will have to get up early because the limited edition GORILLAZ x G-SHOCK collection will launch in-store and online at 5am EST on Wednesday, September 18 on the G-Shock website. Price is expected to be around $150.
