JENNIE x GENTLE MONSTER “Jentle Garden”
From the airport to the red carpet, Blackpink’s Jennie is known for rocking a classic pair of sunnies just about everywhere she goes. And luckily for fans, you’ll soon be able to shop some of her new favorite styles from none other than Korean brand Gentle Monster, as confirmed by the star in December 2021. Now, the Gentle Monster x Jennie collaboration is upon us, marking the second time the “Solo” singer is teaming up with the eyewear label.
On Thursday, March 10, Gentle Monster officially announced the upcoming collection in partnership with the K-pop star, titled “Jentle Monster.” This comes just months after Jennie teased fans with a sneak peek of the upcoming collaboration in two recent Instagram posts, with the captions, “Did somebody say Jentle Garden? 💐 Coming soon 2022.” In the photos, Jennie is seen wearing a sleek pair of white frames to match her cropped button-up, along with a bouquet of flowers carried inside a cone-shaped bag.
In a newly released series of campaign images, Jennie is seen rocking her Gentle Monster seven-piece eyewear collection, which is set to include a range of coveted and sleek frames you’ll definitely want to cop, from sunglasses to opticals and even a specially-made addition.
Back in April 2020, the Blackpink singer launched her very first collection with Gentle Monster, called “Jentle Home,” which was inspired by her childhood memories. The line sold out almost immediately and featured a total of 15 different pairs of optical frames, sunglasses, and three eyewear chains, with prices ranging between $130 to $260.
