In partnership with Jean Paul Gaultier, Burna Boy handpicked two archival eyewear designs from the 1990s, resulting in a modern reinterpretation that perfectly captures his unique style. The limited-edition sunglasses reflect the essence of Burna Boy’s latest album, Love, Damini, featuring heart-shaped accents, vibrant red lenses, and stylish oval-shaped frames.
This collaboration has been eagerly anticipated by fashion enthusiasts, as it signifies Burna Boy’s debut as a designer collaborator, according to JPG. The build-up to the release has been exceptional, with Jean Paul Gaultier hosting a pre-party for Burna Boy fans at their Parisian headquarters, followed by the singer’s electrifying 40,000-person concert at La Défense arena.
The decision to partner with Burna Boy comes as no surprise, as JPG’s creative director, Florence Tétier, has been actively seeking high-profile collaborations to generate excitement. The fashion house recently joined forces with American rapper Lil Nas X and captured the attention of fans by featuring reality star-turned-billionaire beauty mogul Kylie Jenner in their campaign.
The Jean Paul Gaultier x Burna Boy eyewear collection will be available at select specialty stores such as Machine A, Voo Store, FWRD, Kith, Mytheresa, Slam Jam, and Antonioli. Prices for these exclusive styles range from $484 to $592, offering fashion enthusiasts the opportunity to own a piece of this extraordinary collaboration. The eyewear will also be available for purchase on the Jean Paul Gaultier website, ensuring accessibility to fans worldwide.
