Accessories brand KOMONO has teamed up with Belgium-based artist Baloji to release a capsule collection of four unique styles of sunglasses. Imparting his signature afro-centric energy onto the Dizzy, Mujinga, Tshala and Kitoko models, both rapper and brand draw from a colonial aesthetic that remains an important source of inspiration for the Congolese artist. All styles make use of malachite and gold colorways: two hues that exude an opulent quality yet cling to a regard for Baloji’s birthplace.
