Beloved Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster is known for its cutting-edge sunglasses and eyewear. Now, the brand has teamed up with Jennie, member of K-Pop band BLACKPINK for a collaboration. The collection, Jentle Home, launches today and offers a mix of styles, all of which have a different vibe. You can choose between opticals, colored lenses, or oversized frames. Most notably, the collection offers three different eyewear chains, one of spring 2020's most covetable trends.
Renowned photographer Hugo Comte shot many different versions of Jennie in a home and spliced together her various poses into one image. The eyewear collab was inspired by her childhood memories, quintessential ones, such as teddy bears and dollhouses. Even sweeter is that the campaign is a play on her childhood hopes and dreams. This is Jennie's first time starring in an eyewear campaign and last week, she took to Instagram to break the news:
Prices will range from $250 for metal frames, around $260 for acetate styles, and an estimated $130 for the eyewear chain. All are available on gentlemonster.com and there will also be a dollhouse pop-up in Garosugil, Sinsa dong, Seoul in May 2020 (with social distancing rules in place, of course).

Jennie is breaking her way into the fashion industry (you can find her sitting front row at shows like Chanel) with these campaigns, which isn't hard given her talent and beauty.
