Karim Benzema and Jean Paul Gaultier team up for an exclusive launch of the iconic 1990s model JPG 56-6106.

The French fashion house, in its attempt to stay ahead of the curve, has been teaming up with young designers and collaborators for some time now to bring a fresh touch to its designs. This is the case of the union with Olivier Rousteing, Glenn Martens or Chitose Abe. Now, it is joining forces with football star Karim Benzema ‘KB9’ to target an audience obsessed with the Y2K aesthetic.

Together they reimagine the 56-6106 sunglasses that made their mark in the 90s thanks to 2Pac and prepare an exclusive launch of just 500 units. The accessory comes in three different colourways: Gold/Green, Black and Silver/Purple. The Jean Paul Gaultier logo, which appears on the bridge and temples of the glasses, is combined with the ‘KB9’ motif engraved next to the unique serial number of each pair. They include category 3 UVA and UVB filters to ensure maximum optical safety.
