Maluma’s New Sunglasses Collaboration Is a Saucy Summer Treat

Maluma looks great in just about everything, including oddball sunglasses. His Instagram is dotted with the images of the Colombian singer in hulking transparent frames that make him look like an ’80s dad (still hot!), exaggerated square shades that look fit for an alien (still gorgeous!), as well as a rimless iteration that is reminiscent of a noughties R&B singer (we’re still in love!). But today, Maluma has launched his own pair of sunglasses with the label Quay, creating a collection of XXL frames, some of which take up half of the singer’s perfectly symmetrical face. “The whole concept of the sunglasses is that they’re Miami Vice. That eighties, nineties vintage, but with these little modern touches,” says Maluma. “And my essence, of course, is a hundred percent there.” Pricing ranges from $55 for standard sunglasses to $95 for an optical lens version.

The singer’s collaboration with Quay was initially inspired by Jennifer Lopez’s own campaign with the brand back in 2019. “I saw it in Los Angeles and I was like, ‘Wow!’ First of all, I loved the campaign. Secondly, I loved the sunglasses. They were exciting,” says Maluma. “So I started buying them. After that, someone from my office called me and told me that they wanted to work with me.” Maluma’s design process mirrored his style; everything is always a bit outré. That saucy flair comes through in the styles, which are bold in their super large shapes or are completely clear with round frames. “I wanted to do something that people love, but, of course, that was a little bit risky,” he says.
