Grammy award winning singer, Damini Ebunoluwa Ogulu, popularly known by his stage name as Burna Boy, has collaborated with French luxury fashion house — Jean Paul Gaultier for his debut designer product.

As fashion continues to ardently embrace the 1990s, which coincidentally aligns with Burna Boy’s birth era, the Gaultier house has enlisted Burna Boy’s assistance in curating his preferred styles from their archival collection. These selected styles, personally chosen by Burna Boy, are being released today, further highlighting Jean Paul Gaultier’s significant connection to that era.

The brand teased the project by hosting a party at its headquarters for Burna Boy’s fans ahead of his performance in Paris on the 20th of May 2023 with over 40,000 people in attendance

Burna selected two styles from Gaultier’s 1990s archive for the collaboration. The two limited-edition styles, which come in four colourways, incorporate some inspiration for Burna Boy’s latest album “Love, Damini” — especially the heart-shaped details and the red lenses.

The sunglasses will be sold on the brand’s website jeanpaulgaultier.com and specialty stores such as Machine A, Voo Store, FWRD, Kith, Mytheresa, Slam Jam and Antonioli. Retail prices range from 450 euros to 550 euros, with custom styles topping out at 590 euros.

This is another one of the impressive moves Florence Tétier, creative director for Jean Paul Gaultier fashion, has been making lately to __ the brand’s notoriety including collaborations with Lil Nas X, Melissa and Ottolinger, campaigns with the likes of Kylie Jenner, and a recent “Dress Like Jean Paul” spring collection, inspired by the founding designer’s Breton top, also known as a marinière, and kilt.
