Chinese-Canadian singer Kris Wu does not do subtle. Rather, the former member of K-pop boy group EXO, who is charting his own solo career in China, turns it up with his wicked fashion sense that is best described as ’90s bad boy-meets-hype glamour. Cue the slick mullet, the silver chains, the unbuttoned shirt – you get the picture.
So when it comes to his collaboration with Korean eyewear label Gentle Monster which drops in stores on June 25, the man does not hold back. The cheekily-named Gentle Wu collection shows off the singer’s unique personal style in the form of four flossy eyewear designs.
These flashy designs are: a wraparound goggle-style design; a boxy-rectangular style with chain links and rivets; a thick cat-eye silhouette (yeap, fashion-forward dudes wear cat-eye frames) that includes a neon green option; and classic squarish frames that come with – wait for it – a version with ombre pink lens.
