when on the 15th of may 2023

Jean Paul Gaultier, (JPG for short)

announced a new collaboration with the African Giant.

Not long after, Burna boy himself confirmed the collaboration with JPG

Burna boy sunglasses collaboration with JPG.

till it’s unveiling on the first of June

and it’s subsequent release the very next day.

the glasses are inspired by Jean Paul Gaultier 90’s archive sunglasses.

Considering the fact that this is his first high-fashion collaboration

these glasses speak well of Burna’s unique sense of style

and fit so well into his current aesthetic.

the artist has really come into his own fashion-wise

so-much-so that earlier this year

he and Tems made history as the first Nigerian stars to

get invited to the Biggest Night in Fashion.

This is definitely just the beginning of Burna’s journey

into the world of fashion, and ultimately

cementing his place as a Nigerian fashion icon.
